BrightPoint Security Secures Four Key Patents to Support High Performance Distributed Sharing of Threat Data

BrightPoint Customers Benefit From Timely Actionable Intelligence

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2015) - BrightPoint Security™, a leading Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) provider for automation, curation and sharing of threat intelligence to fight cyber threats, today announced it has earned four important patents for the distributed sharing of threat data across organizations.

BrightPoint's Sentinel platform is the industry's first to deliver threat intelligence sharing with granular policy controls to address the needs of security professionals overwhelmed with the deluge of threat data. Now with these four patents, users can benefit further from BrightPoint's innovations by sharing threat data with their ecosystem based on policies they establish with trusted partners. These patents further extend BrightPoint's lead in the threat intelligence arena by addressing the range of customer use cases, including: supply chain, affiliates, subsidiaries and ISAC/ISAOs.

"Threat Intelligence is the fastest growing segment of the overall security market," said Richard Stiennon, Chief Research Analyst of IT Harvest. "With numerous players with similar marketing phrases, it is encouraging to see organizations like BrightPoint Security highlight the value of their intellectual property that differentiates their solution. Distributed sharing of threat intelligence is critical for organizations to thwart cyber-adversaries and help protect our national infrastructure."

The Sentinel solution differentiates from all other Threat Intelligent Platforms by supporting a distributed sharing model across organizations enabling local and remote queries on any type of threat data from threat feeds, endpoints, SIEM data, IoT and more.

"The patents announced today set BrightPoint apart with an architecture configurable to support any type of business partner needs, including no attribution to full attribution and all ranges of policy control in-between," said Rich Reybok, CTO of BrightPoint Security. "In the past, security executives met at the local bar to share threat intelligence. Today, attackers are collaborating and working at Internet speed and security practitioners need to respond in kind. We have architected a solution by security practitioners for security practitioners."
