“SIEM installations can sometime turn out to be complex and expensive for even the best-funded and staffed organizations.

The Value of Crowd-Sourced Threat Intelligence
As an industry, we need a threat-sharing solution that allows IT practitioners to achieve preventative response by learning about how others are targeted, and then employ the right defenses to avoid becoming a target themselves. With this goal in mind, AlienVault created the Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX™) as an open information sharing and analysis network that provides real-time, actionable threat information submitted by over 8,000 contributors in more than 140 countries.
