NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cyware, the industry’s only Virtual Cyber Fusion platform provider, and the Global Resilience Federation (GRF) today announced a joint threat intelligence sharing index initiative that measures intelligence sharing performance benchmarks across ISACs and ISAOs. Cyware has helped GRF expand its threat sharing capabilities with year-over-year growth that features as much as a 300% increase in information sharing in communities managed by GRF, with more than 329,000 machine-to-machine observables generated, without false positives.
Cyware equips GRF and its ISAC and ISAO members to easily share and respond to threat intelligence data more efficiently. ISAC and ISAO members can further leverage Cyware’s Virtual Cyber Fusion platform to bolster their internal security operations, automation, threat hunting, and incident response capabilities.
GRF builds, develops, and connects security information sharing communities and manages information sharing and analysis centers (ISACs), organizations (ISAOs), and computer emergency readiness/response teams (CERTs) including Legal Services ISAO (LS-ISAO), Operational Technology ISAC (OT-ISAC), Business Resilience Council (BRC), Kindergarten Through Twelfth Grade Security Information Exchange (K12 SIX), Energy Analytic Security Exchange (EASE), and Professional Services Information Exchange (ProSIX).
“The shelf life of threat intelligence is incredibly short, making it pivotal that our members have access to real-time threat intelligence around the clock,” said William Nelson, Chair and CEO of Global Resilience Federation and Director of the Operational Technology ISAC. “Cyware’s platform enables us and our member organizations to easily collaborate and coordinate on end-to-end threat intelligence and response. This allows us to support our members in bolstering their security operations to address today’s ever-evolving threat landscape.”
By partnering with Cyware, GRF has increased its cadence of threat alert sharing while improving overall security operations for itself and its members. In the last nine months working with Cyware, GRF and its member organizations have scaled threat-sharing benchmarks, including:
- Over 329,000 machine-to-machine observables generated, without false positives
- 300% increase in operational technology sector sharing
- 49% increase in professional services sector sharing
- 43,000 threat alerts shared, an 8% increase from the previous year
“We are ecstatic to be working with GRF to help fill key security gaps for its members,” said Anuj Goel, CEO, Cyware. “The success they have seen from leveraging our strategic and technical threat intelligence sharing technology is nothing short of incredible, and we look forward to continuing to work with them to build on the next-generation of collaborative security operations by enabling collective defense for ISACs, ISAOs, and CERTs.”
