Fortinet today have announced a partnership with Exodus Intelligence designed to facilitate information sharing between the two organizations, to further protect enterprises across the globe from looming cyber threats.
In addition to the intelligence sharing elements of the partnership, both Exodus and Fortinet will work on the development of new customer-facing threat mitigation and incident response services.
Logan Brown, president of Exodus Intelligence, said that sharing threat intelligence was key to protecting organisations from cyber attacks. “Exodus specializes in unearthing these types of vulnerabilities [Zero-day exploits] and developing exploits to demonstrate the impact of such flaws. Combined with the broad breadth of threat intelligence the FortiGuard team provides, we expect our partnership to enable the discovery and prevention of many ongoing, covert cyber attacks and to further protect organizations from serious these threats.”
This is the second threat intelligence partnership that has been announced this week, following HP Security and AlienVault. IBM also announced this week that they are launching a new data-sharing exchange, opening up more than two decades worth of cyber-threat intelligence.
