234: How AlienVault Open Threat Exchange is Rethinking Cybersecurity
AlienVault is the leading provider of unified security management & community-powered threat intelligence required to detect and act on today’s advanced threats. The power of AlienVault’s Open Threat Exchange, the world’s largest crowd-sourced threat intelligence community is making effective and affordable threat detection attainable for resource-constrained IT teams.
The platform has simplified the way organizations identify and respond to today’s ever-evolving threat landscape. Their unique and award-winning approach, trusted by thousands of customers, combines the essential security controls with an all-in-one platform, AlienVault Unified Security Management.
It’s time for businesses and IT professionals to rethink security. They must embrace the chaos and complexity. They must acknowledge the fact that it’s no longer a question of if they’ll be breached, but when. And they must start to focus on what they do have control over – threat detection and incident response – and implement an agile approach to each that will deliver confidence without hindering innovation.
AlienVault has been rethinking security since its inception. Instead of adding to the complexity, the company chose to focus on a single straightforward approach that simplifies security. It meets the needs of resource-constrained organizations by providing them with the same threat detection and incident response capabilities available to Fortune 500 companies but without the headaches and hassles of deploying and integrating multiple products.
These points and many more are covered by tonight’s guest Barmak Meftah, CEO of Silicon Valley-based AlienVault.
