CyberSponse, Inc has joined the ICS-ISAC as a supporting member and is providing its secure intelligence threat defense management platform as the analytic and information sharing engine to the Center. This platform will become part of the SARA (Situational Awareness Reference Architecture) network being built by the ICS-ISAC and its membership.
“We see what the ICS-ISAC is doing with the SARA project as key to establishing the advanced information sharing and analysis that is needed to combat current and future threats,” said Joseph Loomis, founder and CEO of CyberSponse. “This type of highly scalable infrastructure is what we designed the CyberSponse platform to address.”
Chris Blask, Chair of the ICS-ISAC, said that CyberSponse joining the ICS-ISAC and providing their technology to the SARA project provides additional validation to the Center’s efforts. “We see the rising demand for solutions like CyberSponse as a direct indicator of the state of the critical infrastructure security space. The ICS-ISAC was created to foster the development of information sharing among infrastructure operators and their partners, and we are excited to have CyberSponse participating in those efforts.”
CyberSponse, Inc. is the first provider of a secure business continuity, disaster recovery, and incident response threat defense management technology for large enterprise and SMB networks. It serves large financial, educational, governmental, and other institutional clients from its main offices in Phoenix, Arizona. CyberSponse was founded in 2011 by Joseph Loomis to answer the growing threat of cyber intrusions and attacks.
The Industrial Control System Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ICS-ISAC) exists to bring together key critical infrastructure stakeholders to share knowledge about risks, threats and best practices. As a member-driven organization supported by valued industry partners, the Center provides a common platform where both human-to-human and machine-to-machine information sharing can be performed in a trust-based, collaborative environment.
