AlienVault is a developer of commercial and open source solutions to manage cyber attacks, including the Open Threat Exchange, the worlds largest crowd-sourced computer-security platform with more than 26,000 participants in 140 countries that share more than one million potential threats daily. The company has raised $116 million since it was founded in 2007. In 2015, AlienVault researchers released a study disclosing that Chinese hackers were circumventing popular privacy tools. In addition to their free products, AlienVault offers a paid security platform, called Unified Security Management, that integrates threat detection, incident response, and compliance management into one solution. Threat applications are offered via hardware, virtual machines and as a cloud service. The Open Threat Exchange (OTX), which is free, enables security experts to research and collaborate on new threats, better compare data and integrate threat information into their security systems. A big data platform, OTX leverages natural language processing and machine learning.
