AlienVault Introduces Beta Version of Open Threat Exchange 2.0

The cybersecurity startup offers a new social media platform for the security community to swap threat intelligence data.

AlienVault, a provider of Unified Security Management and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, has introduced the beta version of its Open Threat Exchange (OTX) 2.0 platform. Unlike a traditional contribution-based model for sharing threat intelligence, OTX 2.0 offers a community engagement-based model for more collaborative defense. The platform allows everyone in the OTX community to actively discuss, explore, validate, and share the latest threat data, trends, techniques, and research – strengthening their own defenses while helping others to do the same.†

“When we first released Open Threat Exchange, our goal was to deliver an open threat intelligence-sharing platform that put effective security measures within the reach of all organizations,” says Barmak Meftah, president and CEO of AlienVault. “As others in the industry have developed threat intelligence offerings that support that vision, our goal for OTX 2.0 is to move the needle on how threat intelligence data is shared, making it more collaborative and engaging in order to build a stronger security community working in unison to stop cyber attacks.”

With the beta release of OTX 2.0, users will gain access to real-time threat intelligence, with the ability to import and export indicators of compromise for security tools via an open API, as well as collaborate with researchers and other members of the security community. Users can create or subscribe to an existing “Pulse,” an analysis of a particular threat that provides a summary of the impact, as well as get a view into the software targeted and related indicators of compromise used to detect threats.

Additional features include:

  • Open Community: Provides open access to the community of threat researchers and security professionals to enable collaborative research, provide access to threat intelligence, and automate the process of updating security infrastructure with the latest threat intelligence.
  • Exporting of Threat Intelligence: An automated process lets users update their security infrastructure with the latest threat intelligence by subscribing to a “Pulse,” upon which their systems will automatically update local security products or export Pulses into open formats such as STIX, JSON, OpenloC, MAEC, and CSV, among others for more simplified threat mitigation.
