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). AlienVault’s 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 53,000 participants in 140 countries, who contribute over 10 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.

Openly Research & Collaborate on Emerging Threats
The traditional threat sharing model is a one-way communication between researchers/vendors and subscribers. There is no way for subscribers to interact with peers or threat researchers on emerging threats, as each recipient is isolated from each other. That’s why we built OTX — to change the way we all create, collaborate, and consume threat data.
