Lastline Joins Cyber Threat Alliance, Supporting its Mission to Improve Cybersecurity Industry Cooperation and Information Sharing
CTA members will now benefit from industry-leading analysis of malicious behaviors and IOCs
REDWOOD CITY, CA, October 9, 2018 – Lastline®, the leader in AI-powered network security, today announced that is has joined the Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA), a nonprofit organization working to improve the cybersecurity of the global digital ecosystem. CTA, with a total membership of 21 companies from across the cybersecurity industry, shares timely, actionable, and contextualized threat information to improve defenses against advanced cyber adversaries.
Cyberspace is growing rapidly, increasing the available attack surface for malicious actors to wreak havoc and exploit vulnerabilities. Working with CTA to share information among cybersecurity companies – through coordinated disruption activities and vulnerability disclosures, and during significant cyberincidents – will provide visibility and generate insights about malicious activities and behavior patterns that improve the industry’s understanding of adversaries’ goals and tactics while improving defenses.
“As the number of available targets in cyberspace increases, we need a better understanding of where malicious actors are focusing their attacks, so we can focus our collective defense,” said Michael Daniel, CEO and President of CTA. “Therefore, it’s encouraging to see more companies understand the urgency of this mission and commit to sharing their data to collaboratively combat malicious cyberactivity. We’re excited to welcome Lastline as our newest affiliate member which will contribute to and benefit from the rich data sharing within CTA.”
Lastline is widely credited with having the most effective advanced malware detection capability in the industry. Lastline achieved 100 percent in both Malware Detection and overall Security Effectiveness in the NSS Labs’ 2017 Breach Detection Systems group test, mirroring the results of the 2016 test and becoming the only product ever to repeat with these perfect results. Lastline analyzes millions of samples daily across Lastline’s customer and partner base, and will be sharing with CTA members Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) related to new malware variants or new IOCs related to existing variants.
“We’re looking forward to contributing to this group of committed cyber defenders,” commented Brian Laing, Lastline’s head of global strategic partnerships. “CTA provides a thriving ecosystem capable of sharing valuable threat intelligence to better understand malicious actors at machine speed and scale. Our ability to share malicious behaviors and IOCs captured by our AI-powered threat analytics will enable us to further CTA’s mission of better protecting the digital ecosystem.”
