World-renowned security firm AlienVault has launched Open Minds Exchange, a resource center housing the latest tools, research, and insights provided by the company’s security experts and the community.
In order to provide customers and the community with immediate and easy access to crowd-sourced security intelligence, the company has also released two iOS applications: AlienVault Mobile Console and AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (OTX) Mobile.
“Advanced cyber attacks are occurring at a pace never before seen, and the only way the security community can prepare for and defend against them is by maintaining a steady exchange of intelligence and information,” said Barmak Meftah, AlienVault CEO.
“AlienVault has long been committed to leveraging collective security intelligence for the common good, and National Cyber Security Awareness Month is a good opportunity to recognize the power that comes when the community works together.”
The AlienVault Open Minds Exchange provides visitors with the latest research, tools and insights. Besides the mobile apps, the company also provides AlienVault At-A-Glance Threat Analysis and AlienVault OTX Threat Intelligence Data.
Available for free on iTunes, the OTX mobile app allows users to access real-time data on malicious IP addresses and other significant factors.
The AlienVault Mobile Console is specially designed to allow OSSIM or AlienVault Unified Security Management platform customers to access the AlienVault management console directly from their mobile phones.
AlienVault At-A-Glance Threat Analysis is specially designed for CISOs because it provides them with all the information they need on the latest threats, analysis and research.
The AlienVault OTX Threat Intelligence Data provides resources collected with the aid of the AlienVault and OSSIM community. A real-time threat map, an open source IP reputation database, infographics and other online resources are made available via the Open Minds Exchange resource center.
“It’s our goal to make security visibility and intelligence accessible to anyone. We believe the Open Minds Exchange will be a valuable resource for time and resource-strapped security practitioners and decision-makers who need quick access to the latest research and threat analysis,” the CEO concluded.
