ThreatWave Joins IID's ActiveTrust Platform

Threat Intelligence Gathered From ThreatWave's Email Data Sensor to Be Added Into One of the World's Largest Commercial Cyberthreat Data Exchanges

TACOMA, WA--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2015) - IID, the source for clear cyberthreat intelligence, today announced ThreatWave, provider of the most comprehensive real-time data highlighting the global cyberthreat landscape, will be contributing to IID's big data solution for Internet security -- ActiveTrust. ThreatWave's threat intelligence gathered through its expansive email data sensor network 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.

"Providing threat intelligence from ThreatWave's email sensor network into one of the world's largest commercial cyberthreat data exchanges in ActiveTrust will ultimately make the Internet safer," said ThreatWave CEO Tom Bartel. "We're excited to be able to support so many companies and government agencies with the ability to input our threat data directly into their security infrastructure via ActiveTrust."

ThreatWave will contribute real-time data feeds into ActiveTrust about threat indicators that can be used to identify phishing, malware, brand exploitations, spam, fraud and more. The company analyzes billions of emails every month for cyberthreat indicators. This provides cybersecurity organizations and network abuse prevention companies with a unique cross-sectional view into the global cyberthreat landscape in order to identify risks faster. 

"ThreatWave's unique approach has unlocked a major new source of threat intelligence capturing a broader set of email borne threats than spam traps or honeypots. This data gives a new edge to the companies and government agencies that leverage ActiveTrust every day to combat cyberthreats," said IID founder and CTO, Rod Rasmussen. "The addition of three data partners over the past month that deliver such diverse and impactful intelligence into ActiveTrust is powerful for our customers."

In the last couple weeks, IID announced the first group of data partners providing threat intelligence to customers via the ActiveTrust platform. Along with ThreatWave, Emerging Threats -- newly acquired by Proofpoint, Inc. -- and SenseCY will offer premium data.
