AccelOps Builds Threat Intelligence into its Actionable Security Platform

AccelOps, a start-up based in Santa Clara, California, introduced threat intelligence capabilities for its integrated IT and operational visibility platform.

The existing AccelOps virtual appliance software monitors security, performance and compliance in cloud and virtualized infrastructures on a single screen. It automatically discovers, analyzes and automates IT issues in machine and big data across organizations’ data centers and cloud resources, spanning servers, storage, networks, security, applications and users.

A new Threat Intelligence Center for the platform offers a "Content as a Service” (CaaS) capability to aggregate, validate and share anonymous threat data gathered from the AccelOps customer base, providing benchmark and threat detection intelligence to customers in real time. Also included are additional device support, rules updates, reports and other knowledge bases. AccelOps features an open API that allows users to integrate any public or private threat feed into the AccelOps database and cross-correlate it with their own network and security data. It also supports a Workflow Integration API that creates bi-directional workflow integration into leading IT service management and ticketing solutions, including ServiceNow and Connectwise.

“As a leading provider of threat and operational intelligence, our main objective is to deliver the tools our clients need to stay ahead of the encroaching end point data infiltrating today’s modern data center. These enhancements extend the capabilities of our threat intelligence, providing our customers with even greater insight into the health, security and management of their networks,” stated Dan Maloney, vice president of marketing and business development, AccelOps.
