IID's New Internet Threat Intelligence Sharing Solution Included in Gartner 
Report 
Selectively Available Today, Solution Turns What Is Traditionally a
One-to-One Manual Process Into Large-Scale Structured Collaboration 
TACOMA, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/13 --   IID today announced
Gartner, Inc -- the world's leading information technology research
and advisory company -- has included IID's new threat intelligence
sharing solution in a recent report. The Information Sharing as an
Industry Imperative to Improve Security(1) report, by Gartner
Research Director Anton Chuvakin and former Gartner Vice President
Dan Blum addresses the need for threat intelligence sharing to secure
the Internet, highlighting IID. 
"Collaborative defense is becoming much-needed in information
security, and broader security data sharing is at its core due to the
proliferation of advanced threats," noted Chuvakin and Blum in the
report. "This document assesses the current state of data sharing and
provides recommendations for enterprises and vendors." 
Recently, IID announced it is expanding its offerings to include
security information sharing -- a collective threat intelligence
solution for aggregating, filtering and sharing actionable data from
thousands of contributing sources. The solution is selectively
available today and being leveraged by designated brands to automate
the collection and dispersion of collective intelligence. By
automating, and providing broadly sourced and analyzed threat
intelligence, enterprises and governments can free valuable human
resources while increasing speed and accuracy of cybersecurity
efforts. 
"We believe IID's inclusion in this new information sharing report
from Gartner further validates our approach to information sharing;
moving from one-to-one manual sharing to large-scale structured
collaboration," said IID CEO Lars Harvey. "Only with collaboration
and sharing, on a large scale, will we be able to secure the
Internet. We find it refreshing to see that Gartner recognizes this
need."
