The need for trusted threat intelligence is greater than ever, as 80 percent of cyber attacks are driven by highly organized crime rings in which data, tools and expertise are widely shared. Though hackers have mobilized, their targets have not. A majority (65 percent) of in-house cybersecurity teams use multiple sources of trusted and untrusted external intelligence to fight attackers.
Built by IBM Security, the IBM X-Force Exchange is a new, cloud-based platform that allows organizations to easily collaborate on security incidents, as well as benefit from the ongoing contributions of IBM experts and community members. By freely consuming, sharing and acting on real-time threat intelligence from their networks and IBM’s own repository of known threat intelligence, users can identify and help stop threats.
