AlienVault to the Security Industry: Today’s Threat Environment Demands a New Approach to Threat Intelligence


AlienVault CEO Barmak Meftah to keynote and join panel on threat intelligence at AGC Partners 10th Annual Information Security Conference

San Mateo, California – Feb. 5, 2014 – AlienVault™, the leading provider of Unified Security Management™ solutions and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, today announced its President and CEO Barmak Meftah will provide a keynote presentation at the 10th Annual West Coast Information Security and Tech Growth Conference. Meftah will also join a panel of information security experts at the conference to discuss the “Ethics and Politics of Threat Intelligence Strategy.”

In both his keynote and panel, Meftah will challenge how threat intelligence has traditionally been collected and shared, and – out of necessity – propose that the security industry lead the charge towards open and collaborative threat sharing. Meftah will also highlight findings from the AlienVault Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX), the world’s largest crowd-sourced collaborative threat exchange.
