FireEye and NATO have agreed to exchange cyber information in a move to help protect the international alliance’s networks and systems with a company-built threat intelligence platform.
Both parties signed an industry partnership agreement with the goal to facilitate bilateral sharing of non-classified technical data related to vulnerabilities and threats in cyberspace, FireEye said Friday.
NATO will also integrate the company’s iSIGHT Intelligence platform into the threat prevention and detection processes of NCI Agency as part of the agreement.
“Public and private sector organizations face the same challenges of managing a large number of low-fidelity data and alerts from traditional security offerings,” said Tony Cole, vice president and global government chief technology officer at FireEye.
Cole added the partnership will help the company to gain access to additional threat data and offer intelligence for NATO’s cybersecurity efforts.
FireEye’s iSIGHT Intelligence platform is designed to combine machine, victim and adversary intelligence meant to aid proactive security-based strategies.
NATO will also have access to technical indicators that FireEye gathers through the platform.
The agreement covers only the exchange of generic, non-attributable data to maintain the privacy of FireEye and NATO data, the company added.
