Telefónica, Barracuda Networks, ReversingLabs, and Zscaler have joined the Cyber Threat Alliance in their efforts to make united progress in the fight against sophisticated cyber adversaries. Fortinet, McAfee Labs, Palo Alto Networks and Symantec co-founded the cyber threat alliance to drive a coordinated industry effort against cyber adversaries through deep collaboration on threat intelligence and sharing indicators of compromise.

While past industry efforts have often been limited to the exchange of malware samples, the Cyber Threat Alliance said that it provides more actionable threat intelligence from contributing members, including information on zero-day vulnerabilities, botnet command and control (C&C) server information, mobile threats, and indicators of compromise (IoCs) related to advanced persistent threats (APTs) on top of the commonly-shared malware samples. By raising the industry's collective actionable intelligence, alliance participants will be able to deliver greater security for individual customers and organizations.

Stephen Pao, GM Security of Barracuda
We appreciate the charter of the Cyber Threat Alliance and believe there should be closer collaboration across security researchers, industry, education, and government. We look forward to sharing critical data across threat vectors that can be leveraged not only for delivering Total Threat Protection for our customers but also toward benefiting the community as a whole.

Pedro Pablo Pérez, CyberSecurity Director, Telefónica
Telefónica firmly believes that the collaboration against cybercrime with leading companies in the security practice will lead us to a better cyber-resilience in the digital world. We are excited about the opportunity to work with the CTA members. Our internal capabilities together with our Cyber Security services based on digital intelligence that Telefónica has been developing for many years, will add value to this alliance and will boost CTA member’s knowledge for better collaborative protection.
