Austin, TX – May 06, 2014 – Ziften, the leader in Open Visibility Intelligence, providing organizations with a more secure environment by delivering actionable analytics for user devices across the enterprise, announced today they have joined AlienVault’s Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX) partner member program to deliver immediate threat visibility from the endpoint to the network for security professionals.

The AlienVault OTX provides real-time threat data not only to thousands of companies and government institutions, but also to a rapidly growing community of the world’s premier providers of security products and services. As the custodian of OTX, AlienVault openly shares its threat data repository to qualified partner members at no cost.

“We are thrilled to be leveraging the intelligence offered by AlienVault OTX as an important source of additional intelligence that we can combine with other feeds and our own big data analytics to identify Indicators of Compromise for advanced threats,” said Charles Leaver, CEO of Ziften. “We believe there is mutual benefit to vendors sharing intelligence to complete a more holistic view of threat activity throughout the enterprise from the endpoint to servers, through the network, firewalls and over the horizon.”
