Fortinet has entered into a cyber partnership agreement with South Korea’s internet and security agency to facilitate two-way exchange of threat intelligence data.
The deal allows the both parties to jointly research and analyze web security incidents in South Korea as well as identify appropriate technology and methods to increase the country’s resilience to cyber attacks, Fortinet said Tuesday.
“Public and private sector partnerships are critical to the future of cybersecurity,” noted Michael Xie, founder, president and chief technology officer of Fortinet.
“Fortinet continues to partner with global organizations like KISA, NATO, and INTERPOL, to share valuable cyber threat intelligence to proactively help stop cyberattacks,” Xie added.
KISA and Fortinet will collaborate to perform cover zero-day vulnerability studies and exchange botnets, malicious domains, URLs and malware samples as part of the agreement.
The company aims to help the agency secure networks across South Korea with global cyber threat reports from the company’s security group FortiGuard Labs.
Fortinet also works with law enforcement, government agencies and industry organizations worldwide in a push to combat cyber crimes through actionable threat intelligence sharing.
