New cyber threats are constantly emerging, making it difficult for your customers to keep up with the latest cyber security risks. There are too many threats for any professional or business to battle on its own. To address this challenge, many security professionals are joining cyber security communities like an ISAO.

In 2015, Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations (ISAOs) were established to allow businesses, local governments and security specialists to create communities that work together, share intelligence and deliver training under the cover of mutual non-disclosure agreements. This alliance lets the community members share timely, examined and highly relevant data to stay up to date on the latest cyber security information.

Here are four reasons why your customers should utilize an ISAO to keep up with the evolving cyber security landscape:

  • Cost-effective threat intelligence: Threat intelligence feeds are typically costly and draw from a small pool of collaborators.

  • Real-time indicators of compromise (IOCs): Attacker IP addresses, hashes of malware, phishing and spam infrastructure are delivered to your customers’ SIEM, firewalls or their team directly. False positives are removed, and the enriched data is reliably delivered through experts with years of experience.

  • Secure and private communications among members: Sharing intelligence, collaboration and questions must remain confidential. The RECON ISAO offers a secure and private platform for your communications with RECON ISAO members.

  • Education and technical resources: Your customers will have access to a private portal where they will find educational references and other resources. The portal also includes technical documents on topics ranging from threat hunting to breach mitigation. Members also have exclusive access to technical workshops and conferences.

Tech Data Security remains committed to empowering our channel partners and their customers with access to threat intelligence and resources that are invaluable to your customers. That is why we have established a partnership with the Arizona Cyber Warfare Range and National Cyber Warfare foundation to provide you with the Tech Data RECON ISAO solution. This ISAO draws from an extensive community of knowledgeable members and leverages expert analysis through our partnerships.

RECON ISAO provides the breadth and depth necessary to ensure that your customers gain access to the most comprehensive threat intelligence. By joining the RECON ISAO, your customers will be able to take advantage of mutual collaboration for their cyber defense.
