Bandura Cyber and Global Resilience Federation (GRF) today announced a
partnership to integrate automated intelligence feeds and gateway
technology for the perimeter defense of GRF affiliated companies.
Bandura Cyber pioneered the Threat Intelligence Gateway (TIG) industry,
in part with the U.S. Department of Defense, to operationalize threat
indicators and block known threats. GRF provides threat intelligence to
thousands of organizations through its member and partner network of
Information Sharing Analysis Centers (ISACs), Information Sharing and
Analysis Organizations (ISAOs), and computer emergency
readiness/response teams (CERTs).
Working together, the two organizations will aid interested GRF members
and affiliated companies in implementing a defensive solution that
automates and integrates threat data to help fill security coverage gaps
and helps alleviate the burden on cybersecurity personnel. By doing so,
the solution will support both enterprise operations as well as the
operations of small firms, municipal energy utilities, and other
organizations that are members of GRF affiliated companies.
Many organizations face challenges effectively implementing new security
tools and integrating their many sources of threat data. A lack of
automation can increase risk and cause data fatigue. This new partnership
will integrate the GRF eXchange cross-industry threat feed and
community-specific threat feeds, including Legal Services Information
Sharing and Analysis Organization (LS-ISAO), Energy Analytic Security
Exchange (EASE), and others with the Bandura Cyber TIG. This will allow
GRF communities to pass threat feeds through Bandura’s defensive gateway
to further operationalize the threat intelligence by blocking known
threats, improving network protection.
“We are excited to partner with an industry leader like GRF,” said Todd
Weller, Chief Strategy Officer of Bandura Cyber. “By joining forces with
GRF, we plan to dramatically improve the security posture of
organizations worldwide. Our mission has always been to deliver the
caliber of threat intelligence, automation, and control needed for
companies of all sizes to operationalize threat intelligence to block
threats at massive scale.”
Threat intelligence has historically been used in the context of
detection and response. Using a Bandura Cyber TIG, companies can put
threat intelligence to work in front of the firewall, blocking millions
of known threats while freeing up firewall resources and reducing staff
The Bandura Cyber TIG also extends the usefulness of threat intelligence
to more resource-constrained small and mid-sized enterprises that
struggle to incorporate this information into their security efforts in
an easy and automated way. The Bandura Cyber TIG further leverages
existing investments in threat information, reduces staff workload by
blocking threats at a higher point, and makes organizations safer
through preemptive action.
“GRF is always searching for cybersecurity and threat intelligence
solutions that meet the needs of our members, balancing advanced
requirements of the largest and the plug-and-play needs of the
smallest,” said Bill Nelson, CEO of GRF. “We are excited to join Bandura
Cyber in a partnership designed to deliver both as we accelerate the
adoption and use of automated threat intelligence, like that provided by
GRF eXchange, in a way that maximizes its effectiveness through
Promotion for GRF Members
