Fortinet and IBM Security have now announced that they will actively share cyber threat information.
As the digital and physical worlds become more interconnected, threat intelligence sharing is becoming an increasingly critical component of any security strategy.
Information sharing is one of the most critical elements of any security strategy. Without it, security has to be painted with abroad brush when literally anything is possible. Being able to compare the device or network you are trying to protect against a set of threats that are known to be currently active is invaluable in pitting the right resources and countermeasures against the appropriate target.
