OTX Data with External Security Monitoring Systems

You can easily leverage OTX threat intelligence within your own security monitoring and management systems and tools, including USM Appliance or AlienVault OSSIM, by taking advantage of the AlienVault OTX DirectConnect API and DirectConnect SDK. You can connect to the OTX API using DirectConnect Agents available for a number of specific products and third party tools. If you have an USM Appliance/AlienVault OSSIM installation, you can get the benefits of the DirectConnect API immediately simply by entering your OTX API key from the USM Appliance OTX Configuration web page.
