Fujitsu has demonstrated its ability to link the in-house cyber threat intelligence (CTI) utilization system with the US Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) system for sharing CTI provided through Automated Indicator Sharing (AIS) program. The latter rapidly shares threat indicators between government and private companies.
By integrating these systems, Fujitsu will be able to analyse the CTI it has developed as well as the one from AIS. As a result, in case of cyberattacks, threat indicators about attacks with the same or similar elements along with intelligence about countermeasures can be supplied from AIS and used to respond.
Moreover, the link will be set so that the latest CTI is uploaded onto AIS and automatically reflected Fujitsu’s security products and services that protect customer systems. In this way, Fujitsu will be able to automate tasks like the addition of rules to respond to new cyber attacks which were earlier done manually. This, in turn, saves the time required for cyber security and reduces chances of errors.
The increasing number of threats for cyber attacks and the lack of analysts with advanced skills have made it important to utilize CTI on a global scale. So in order to make a justified use of CTI from AIS, Fujitsu has connected its in-house CTI with AIS’s CTI sharing system, thus facilitating its use in rapid responses to cyber attacks.
After linking Fujitsu’s CTI utilization system with AIS’s system, the following results will be seen:
• It would be possible to rapidly collect cyber threat indicators from around the world and immediately prepare countermeasures. This would help in preventing risks in the form of information leaks.
• Another result will be that the existing security products and services will be capable of immediately responding to new cyber attacks. This will take less time and also reduce the chances of mistakes.
Fujitsu is the leading Japanese information and communication technology (ICT) company offering a full range of technology products, solutions, and services. Approximately 155,000 Fujitsu people support customers in more than 100 countries.
