HP announced HP Threat Central, a community-sourced security intelligence platform that will enable automated, real-time collaboration between organizations to combat advanced cyber threats.
The sophistication of cyberattacks has grown substantially in recent years, as adversaries both specialize and share intelligence, tools and plans in order to improperly obtain data and disrupt critical enterprise functions. In isolation, organizations struggle to stay ahead of this new breed of collaborative attacks, placing themselves in constant risk of financial, competitive and reputation losses.
Currently being piloted with a qualified group of HP ArcSight customers, the platform will provide participants with real-time intelligence on the attack vectors, methods, motivations and specific adversaries behind the threats they face. For example, the banking industry often falls prey to a domino attack where one organization is hit with an attack that is later used against its peers until many have been breached. With HP Threat Central, once a threat is identified, authorized community members are alerted in real time, enabling them to look for similar indicators within their own organizations to get ahead of the adversary.
