Emerging Threats to Provide Data for IID's ActiveTrust Platform

Threat Intelligence Will Be Available as Part of IID's Commercial Cyberthreat Data Exchange

TACOMA, WA--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2015) -   IID, the source for clear cyberthreat intelligence, today announced Emerging Threats, a leading provider of threat intelligence recently acquired by Proofpoint, Inc., will make some of its data available via IID's big data solution for Internet security -- ActiveTrust. Emerging Threats' threat intelligence will be available as premium data to ActiveTrust customers -- meaning it will be viewable in the ActiveTrust dashboard and can be input into any organization's cybersecurity infrastructure as easily as IID's own data.

"Fortune 500 companies and U.S. government agencies rely on ActiveTrust, and we're excited to be able to provide our data via the dashboard," said Ken Gramley, vice president of Emerging Threats at Proofpoint. "We believe customers will benefit from the comprehensive view of the threat intelligence landscape."

ActiveTrust adds clarity to cyberthreat intelligence by distilling threat data from thousands of trusted sources, and fusing it into actionable intelligence delivered to security professionals and automated infrastructure. It is the world's largest commercial threat data exchange. 

With 10 years of global cyberthreat data collection, and independent expert threat research and analysis, Emerging Threats powers cyber defense solutions for OEMs and enterprises around the world. Emerging Threats will provide the latest malware data, Internet Protocol address and domain reputation data, and cyberthreat response recommendations to ActiveTrust customers.

"Emerging Threats provides some of the most timely, accurate and meaningful cyberthreat intelligence available so it only made sense for us to make its data available to ActiveTrust customers," said Lars Harvey, CEO at IID. "We're looking forward to our customers being able to put this premium data into action in any of their cyber defenses alongside the thousands of other data sources that IID is analyzing around the clock."
