RSA, Juniper Team On Threat Intelligence-Sharing
Intelligence-sharing among vendors -- and about attacks on vendors -- key to thwarting today's attacks, officials say.
SAN FRANCISCO -- RSA CONFERENCE 2013 -- RSA, the security division of EMC, and Juniper Networks announced Monday that they have teamed up to share threat intelligence -- and the partnership ultimately will include sharing intel about attacks targeting security vendors as well.
"We have to do a better job cooperating" as an industry to leverage all of the threat intelligence gathered today, said Art Coviello, CEO of RSA. "We can't just rely on internal data: We need external data as well. If criminals and rogue actors can get together, why can't the good guys? ... It's important that we [vendors] gather and share intelligence."
RSA and Juniper will collaborate and share intel from RSA's Live threat intelligence and Juniper's newly unveiled Spotlight Secure intel service. Juniper also said it will embed RSA's mobile authentication technologies into its Junos Pulse SSL Secure product....
