AlienVault Reputation Monitor Alert is a free service that alerts you whenever your public IPs and domains appear in the Open Threat Exchange® (OTX™), indicating they could be compromised. OTX contains data from a wide range of sources including AlienVault users, other security researchers and vendors. Discovering your IPs here is a prime indicator that they could be already compromised. The OTX Reputation Monitor Alert service also monitors your DNS registration and SSL certificates to make sure there aren’t any unwanted changes.
Reputation Monitor Alert leverages the power of OTX, the world’s first truly open threat intelligence community that enables collaborative defense with actionable, community-powered threat data. Over 100,000 participants from over 140 countries, from organizations of all sizes across many industries and countries, contribute 19 million threat artifacts daily to OTX. This global, continuously updated threat intelligence helps you secure your networks from system compromise, data loss, and service disruption.
1) Join the AlienVault Community
2) Submit Your IPs & Domains
3) Activate Email Alerts
You simply join OTX, submit your IPs and domains, and we’ll take care of the rest… If we discover a problem, we’ll send you an email or you can monitor it from the web interface. The free Reputation Monitor Alert service does not require AlienVault® Unified Security Management® (USM™) or OSSIM™; however, we do recommend these for complete and unified security monitoring.
Administrators of AlienVault OSSIM and USM deployments can voluntarily contribute IP reputation data from a broad range of devices in their environment (firewalls, proxies, web servers, anti-virus systems, and intrusion detection/prevention systems). They can also contribute Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) to OTX pulses that contain more details. The AlienVault Labs team verifies and curates the data in OTX, ensuring its accuracy, relevance, and timeliness. By gathering threat data from a diverse install base, composed of organizations of all sizes across many industries and countries, OTX is able to limit an attacker’s ability to isolate targets by industry or organization size.
