“The OTX and Labs give you real-time updates and help you to gather information much faster than if you had to wait until any risks were vetted through a closed system. If a foreign system gets compromised and starts attacking, then you and others can identify security issues faster and counteract.”
Eric Shaver II, Security Officer, The Plateau Group, Inc.
IT and security practitioners don’t have the time to research the latest threats and write the rules to detect them. Most organizations – especially those who are in the mid-market – don’t have an infrastructure with thousands of global collection points or a team of security researchers to analyze it all. That’s why the AlienVault Labs team is so essential.
The researchers in our Lab are like an extension of your own security team, working to continually and automatically update the AlienVault Unified Security Management platform with threat intelligence for targeted detection and actionable guidance to effectively respond to the latest threats.
Not a USM customer? No matter – you can still benefit from the research our Labs team conducts because they are also the brains behind our Open Threat Exchange (OTX). OTX is an open information sharing and analysis network that provides access to real-time, detailed information about incidents that may impact you, allowing you to learn from and work with others who have already experienced them. Anyone can join the Open Threat Exchange and benefit from its free services.
