ElevenPaths and Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA) collaborates in sharing information intelligence about cyber threats

In 2015, ElevenPaths, together with another market leader companies, such as Check Point, Cisco, Fortinet, Intel Security, Palo Alto and Symantec, brought together their strength to join a community that aims to exchange information about intelligence in cyber threats. This community is called CyberThreat Alliance (CTA).

In January 2017, the CyberThreat Alliance was converted into a non-profit organisation and, after that, announced Michael Daniel, ex-coordinator of cybersecurity in the White House, as President of the institution. In this context, ElevenPaths and CyberThreat Alliance renewed and accelerated the commitment in exchanging information about intelligence in cybersecurity, in order to provide better support and security to our customers.

Combining this collective intelligence, the CTA aspires to improve the detection of recent threats and its defences, to boost the protection to customers and partners in the alliance.

The CTA had developed an automatic system for shared information, allowing in real time the sharing in all Indicators of Compromise (IoCs), adding not only the indicators in an individual way, but also correlated and in context of each threat. The system allows the members of the alliance to access immediately the enriched indicators, working ahead of the industry, providing an early detection and being published before another sources.

Everyday, thousands of indicators are exchanged in CTA, and their relation are focusing on creating context, enriching the intelligence information and providing a better and faster detection of unknowing threats.

In ElevenPaths, we are constantly creating the best security solutions for our customer, supporting all collaborative initiatives from the security industry. In this way, we can be ahead in an effective way in the war against the cybercriminals.
