ForgeRock and FireEye Join Forces to Detect Cyber Attacks with Identity-Aware Threat Intelligence Solution
Integration of FireEye Threat Analytics Platform and the ForgeRock Identify Platform to Enable Organisations to Correlate Identity-Based Intrusions with Enterprise-wide Threat Indicators
BRISTOL, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ForgeRock® Inc., the leading open source provider of Identity Relationship Management (IRM) solutions, and FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks, today announced an integration of intelligence from the ForgeRock Identity Platform™ with the FireEye® Threat Analytics Platform™ (TAP™) to provide enhanced security incident detection and response management. The integration brings together identity management and security intelligence to deliver a unified dashboard to help security teams identify attacks based on compromised credentials. As part of the integration, ForgeRock joins the FireEye technology alliance programme.
Through this joint effort, data from the ForgeRock Identity Platform is integrated into FireEye TAP, a cloud-based security incident detection and response management platform. When combined with ForgeRock’s real-time intelligence of end-users, FireEye TAP is designed to allow organisations to make timely security decisions based on location, IP address, time, known device and other context, and provide a more comprehensive picture of when and how advanced attackers are targeting an organisation. Actionable intelligence is prioritised according to risk, helping organisations to more quickly detect advanced attacks and insider threats.
“Digital identities are at the center of every online interaction, and essential to achieving a 360 degree, closed-looped security model,” said Mike Ellis, CEO at ForgeRock. “We are thrilled to become a FireEye technology alliance partner, providing our customers with real-time, dynamic identity data paired with high-quality threat indicators to better protect their networks from malicious attacks. The integration solution provides a unique way to quickly gather security intelligence and provide it to customer organisations, so they can speed threat detection and remediation.”
“FireEye and our Mandiant Services team are at the forefront of identifying the sources of today’s advanced threats, and we’ve seen compromised user credentials emerge as a common attack technique in the majority of data breaches across almost every industry,” said Steve Pataky, vice president of worldwide channels and alliances at FireEye. “This integration allows us to use near real-time identity context from ForgeRock paired with FireEye’s expanding database of threat indicators, along with event and log information from across the enterprise, to provide more visibility into these threats. This intelligence enables a more complete assessment of risk, allowing FireEye to alert security teams of suspicious activity and help protect enterprises against attacks.”
Industry reports find that the negative impact of data breaches on businesses and consumers continues to grow. According to a study published in April 2014 by Experian and the Ponemon Institute, more than half of the consumers surveyed were victims of data breaches in 2013, as compared to 25 percent in 2012. Sixty-two percent of respondents said they received two data-breach notifications from credit card or retail companies, involving separate incidents.
