World's First Open Threat Intelligence Community
Threat sharing in the security industry remains mainly ad-hoc and informal, filled with blind spots, frustration, and pitfalls. Our vision is for companies and government agencies to gather and share relevant, timely, and accurate information about new or ongoing cyberattacks and threats as quickly as possible to avoid major breaches (or minimize the damage from an attack). The AlienVault® Open Threat Exchange® (OTX™) delivers the first truly open threat intelligence community that makes this vision a reality.
How OTX Works
AlienVault OTX provides open access to a global community of threat researchers and security professionals. It now has more than 80,000 participants in 140 countries, who contribute over 19 million threat indicators daily. It delivers community-generated threat data, enables collaborative research, and automates the process of updating your security infrastructure with threat data from any source. OTX enables anyone in the security community to actively discuss, research, validate, and share the latest threat data, trends, and techniques, strengthening your defenses while helping others do the same.

Take a Tour of OTX.
Most threat data sharing products or services are expensive and/or overly complex. Users often find themselves buying multiple services since the traditional, isolated, approach to threat data limits their ability to export threat data from one tool to another. OTX provides several methods for your security tools to ingest pulse data, allowing you to react quickly and more efficiently to any threats.
Direct Integration with the AlienVault USM Platform
Automatically instrument the built-in IDS security capabilities within the AlienVault USM platform, as well as third party security tools, with the latest actionable threat data from community-generated OTX pulses.

OTX Endpoint Threat Hunter
With its direct OTX integration, OTX Endpoint Threat Hunter™ allows you to hunt for threats on your endpoints without using other security products. So, you can immediately take advantage of the community-powered threat intelligence of OTX.
OTX Endpoint Threat Hunter uses the same agent-based approach as expensive endpoint security tools, giving you meaningful threat visibility of your critical endpoints without the cost and complexity. With other free, open source approaches to endpoint agents, it can be difficult to deploy, to know what to query, and to correlate this information with the latest threat data. OTX Endpoint Threat Hunter removes this complexity and guesswork while providing a free security service available to all. Learn more ›
