AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Exodus Intelligence and EclecticIQ today announced a partnership that will allow corporations and governments to track identified-yet-unpatched Zero-Day vulnerabilities, which represent some of the most difficult challenges faced by cyber security professionals.
With the new partnership, Exodus Intelligence will provide its exclusive Zero-Day vulnerability metadata through EclecticIQ Platform, the analyst-centric Threat Intelligence Platform from EclecticIQ. This first-to-market combination will improve enterprise awareness of new Zero-Day vulnerabilities, enabling cyber security teams to better protect their organizations against the fastest-moving cyber security threats.
Zero-Day vulnerabilities represent the most problematic class of threats for cyber security professionals. From the moment that a Zero-Day vulnerability emerges, enterprises remain open to attacks until a patch is released and applied. Yet until now, enterprises have lacked a reliable mechanism to become aware of the existence of Zero-Day vulnerabilities prior to patch release. Consequently, enterprises have been unable to take alternative protective measures, or even to know whether their networks are being affected by a known Zero-Day vulnerability.
Starting today, exclusive Zero-Day Metadata Access (ZMA) from Exodus Intelligence is now directly accessible through EclecticIQ Platform. With this capability, enterprise cyber security teams will have immediate knowledge of new Zero-Day vulnerabilities, so that they can more quickly investigate their susceptibility to these critical threats, put into place temporary countermeasures, and track the activities of adversaries trying to exploit Zero-Day vulnerabilities.
For the first time, enterprises can protect themselves against identified-yet-unpatched threats. Using key features of EclecticIQ Platform, enterprises can dynamically transform metadata for selected Zero-Day vulnerabilities into rules that feed into popular Intrusion Detection and Protection Systems (IDS/IPS), including the open-source Snort IPS. This level of security automation represents a new approach to defending against Zero-Day vulnerabilities that is unique to the cyber security industry.
Logan Brown, CEO of Exodus Intelligence, said: "Exodus is excited to launch our partnership with EclecticIQ. Through the integration of our Zero-Day Metadata Access with EclecticIQ Platform, we are not only increasing enterprise awareness of Zero-Day vulnerabilities, but also allowing them to detect exploit attempts and protect against these critical threats."
Joep Gommers, CEO of EclecticIQ, said: "Exodus Intelligence, a clear leader in its category, has created a unique offering for vulnerability intelligence, that combined with our Threat Intelligence Platform, brings actionable insights to our mutual clients."
The integration between Exodus Intelligence and EclecticIQ Platform delivers an unprecedented level of security to enterprises.
