Sentinel IPS Launches CINS Army New Initiative
Using specific and actionable data to strengthen collective IT network security
DALLAS – Dec. 13, 2016 – Sentinel IPS, a long-time sponsor of the Collective Intelligence Network Security (CINS) Army, announces a new initiative to foster intelligence gathering and data sharing among security providers for better IT network protection.
“Every day our Sentinel IPS devices detect more than a million unique events, and hundreds of thousands of these attacks are stopped on the edge of the network using our CINS Active Threat Intelligence,” said David Lissberger, CINS Army founder and Sentinel IPS chief executive officer. “Sponsoring CINS Army is the first step in giving back to the InfoSec community to help strengthen our collective network security, which protects us all.”
One benefit of CINS Army is free threat intelligence on thousands of malicious IP addresses the company derives from its Sentinel IPS devices and combined with other reputable security sources. The result: Improved network security on the edge of the network and better context for incident response.
After registering on the CINS Army website, the company provides a link and unique token used to download its threat intelligence. The information is provided in several formats, including STIX, Snort rules and Suricata rules, and a simple text file.
