Launched in 2012, OTX is the world’s first truly open threat intelligence community that enables collaborative defense with actionable, community-powered threat data. OTX members can also create private communities and discussion groups, where they can share content and selected pulses with members.
OTX its great on its own, but is awesome when used in tandem with Alienvault Unified Security Management, or USM.
Once connected, the USM platform will receive threat data directly from OTX pulses. Pulses provide a summary of the threat, a view into the software targeted, and the related Indicators of Compromise (IoC) that you can use to detect the threats. They come from community-created OTX pulses and security events voluntarily contributed by USM and OSSIM users.
The USM platform correlates the OTX data and alerts you when it detects IOCs from the OTX system interacting with assets in your environment. The alerts could include communication with known malicious IPs, detection of malware used in an emerging threat in your network, or outbound communication with command and control (C&C) servers.
You will receive immediate notification in the form of an event or an alarm when a known malicious IP address communicates with any of your system assets, or when USM identifies any other IOCs active in your network.
You can review a pulse activity feed, containing detailed information about current activity and related pulses reported by the OTX community.
With the combined power of AlienVault USM and the OTX community, you can achieve security visibility and be provided actionable intelligence in minutes – not months.
