New network designed to ease cyberthreat info sharing

October 14, 2015

WASHINGTON (10/14/15)--Cybersecurity venture Soltra announced this week it plans to launch Soltra Network, a new network offering designed to connect cyberthreat intelligence sharing across intelligence producers, intelligence consumers, communities and cybersecurity tools.

The new service is designed to work alongside Soltra Edge, which is a platform developed in partnership with the financial services industry to share existing threat information.

Soltra is a joint venture between the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) and the Depository Trust and Clearing Corp. Soltra Edge was launched in September 2014.

As envisioned, the new Soltra Network will connect Soltra Edge servers and route data between users in within a highly scalable, highly secure network. Users of the Soltra Network--individual entities, groups, sharing communities, threat intelligence providers and cybersecurity solutions providers--will connect to the network, facilitating the flow of information in a standardized way using industry standard protocols.

Users will be able to access the Soltra Network directly from Soltra Edge. Soltra Edge is available to entities to install and configure for free under a basic license. A free copy can be found here.

CUNA continues to work with the FS-ISAC, of which it is a member, to assist credit unions in monitoring and responding to cyberthreats, as well as sharing information that could be beneficial.
