Centripetal Networks Joins AlienVault’s OTX Partner Member Program

AlienVault’s Open Threat Exchange (OTX) to integrate into Centripetal Networks’ RuleGate platform for enhanced cyber defenses

HERNDON, Va. – April 2, 2015 – Centripetal Networks, the foremost provider of Real-Time Active Network Defense solutions, today announced that they have joined AlienVault’s Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX) partner member program to provide enterprises with a more complete cyber defense system. Under the new partnership, Centripetal Networks will leverage the AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (OTX) through their high-performance RuleGate® platform.

AlienVault’s Open Threat Exchange gives its customers access to the world’s largest crowd-sourced threat intelligence platform. Currently, more than 8,000 contributors from 140 countries currently share over 17,000 potentially malicious threats daily.

Centripetal Networks’ RuleGate is an Active Network Defense platform with real-time attack visualizations and analytics. As each attack is detected and blocked, RuleGate produces a real-time information feed of the threats, which is then presented in Centripetal’s breakthrough logging application, QuickThreat®. This enables threat intelligence-based alerts to be analyzed in real time.

"We are pleased to announce our partnership with AlienVault as this will enable us to bring the advanced data streams from their threat intelligence platform into RuleGate to heighten organization’s cyber defenses,” said Steven A. Rogers, Founder and CEO of Centripetal Networks. “The threat landscape is ever-evolving and expanding, making the need for a more complete solution all the more prevalent. Traditional security systems simply cannot meet the breadth of today’s attacks. Persistent threats require persistent solutions.”

The partnership between AlienVault and Centripetal Networks operationalizes the intelligence streams from OTX within Centripetal’s products, giving organizations the ability to block or alert on cyber threats as they occur, without creating any degradation in network performance or user experience. This integration brings together a powerful and necessary solution in the cyber security field. Every day attacks are becoming more complex, which calls for a cyber defense system that provides the most advanced, fully correlated data available with the ability to act upon it. The solution created by Centripetal Networks, powered by AlienVault OTX, provides just that.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to partner with Centripetal Networks in their efforts to support customers in staying ahead of today’s increasingly complex security landscape,” said Andy Johnson, SVP of Business Development at AlienVault. “Through this partnership, we look forward to getting AlienVault OTX in the hands of more security professionals in order to support the broader industry in maintaining secure systems."
