threatTRANSFORM Open Source App Jumpstarts STIX-Based Threat Data Classification

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Creators of threatTRANSFORM (www.threattransform.com) announced the release of the open source application designed to streamline the creation, compiling, and publishing of STIX datasets. Anyone struggling to manage security event classification can utilize the free open source threatTRANSFORM application to improve their MSSP, SIEM, and other big data cyber threat intelligence, management, and response programs with the industry standard framework -- Structured Threat Information eXpression (STIX™).

STIX is designed for cyber threat analysts, malware analysts, security vendors, and information security practitioners in defending networks and systems against cyber threats. STIX provides a common language for describing cyber threat information for sharing, storing, and otherwise using a consistent manner that facilitates automation. threatTRANSFORM allows organizations to begin classifying threat data in an industry-standard way for consistent reporting, analysis, and sharing.

"We've been working with the open source version of threatTRANSFORM from the very beginning and totally support their commitment to opening it up to everyone -- we're using threatTRANSFORM to integrate our real-time cyber attack intelligence into threat platforms," said Maurits Lucas, InTELL Business Director at FOX-IT. "For us it was more than the ground-breaking work in using STIX in web platforms and the excellent framework they provide; the threatTRANSFORM guys have provided great support and advice which has helped us to scale our own unique InTELL portal content across multiple continents."

threatTRANSFORM was created by Brad Lindow, Timothy Plocinski, and Demetrios Lazarikos (Laz). Based on the MIT Open Source License, threatTRANSFORM was created for streamlining the creation of STIX datasets. Everything from analyzing complex information to sifting through machine data, the threatTRANSFORM application provides a powerful template engine. threatTRANSFORM is free and works in nearly any web server -- it's a quick way to jumpstart working with STIX.

"We'd previously been using a proprietary mechanism of data exchange," said Rich Reybok, SVP of Engineering for Vorstack. "threatTRANSFORM has really helped us to quickly transition to a preferred STIX standards based method of describing cyber threat information between customers, aiding product adoption."

threatTRANSFORM was built from the ground up for the end user and developer extending the cyber intelligence application code. To begin integrating threatTRANSFORM and take control of your STIX data, please visit http://www.threattransform.com.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
