Hewlett Packard has extending the reach of its security intelligence sharing network, forming an alliance with Hitachi which it says is designed to capture and share Japan-specific threat information.

In what HP says is a “first-of-its-kind” partnership, the alliance significantly advances the company’s efforts to foster a wider reach of international security information sharing, and is an extension of the 25-year alliance between Hitachi and HP.

Through the partnership, Hitachi will join the HP Global Threat Intelligence Alliance, and contribute threat intelligence to HP’s existing security information sharing platform, HP Threat Central which delivers automated and open sharing of information and contextual analysis that allows organisations to take action. The intelligence will also inform periodically published reports from HP Security Research.

Shane Bellos, general manager, Enterprise Security Products, HP South Pacific, said that to arm enterprises against an ever growing array of threats, HP Security Research created the HP Global Threat Intelligence Alliance to foster their collaboration.

Bellos says the alliance program provides members with access to private, value-added intelligence from leading industry researchers, analysis of underground forums, and threat actor profiles. In return, these participant enterprises contribute their own intelligence from the threats they face on a daily basis.

“Targeted attacks are becoming more pervasive and the evolving nature of threats continues to be a top security challenge facing organisations around the world.

“Information sharing is fundamental to staying a step ahead of the adversaries, advancing security intelligence and quickly isolating threats to predict threats and protect our most valuable data.”

According to Bellos, with cyber attacks on the rise, and impacting Japanese enterprises across the financial services, technology, communications and automotive sectors, this alliance is particularly well timed.

Bellos cites a report by the Ponemon Institute revealing that, in fact, the financial impact of cyber crime continues to rise in Japan, as evidenced by a 68% net increase in the past four years.

“In recent years, not only corporate IT systems but also critical social infrastructures are facing a growing risk of cyber attacks, with techniques becoming more complex and tenacious,” said Shuji Senoo, senior director, Advanced Security Technology Operations, Cloud Services Division at Hitachi.

“With partnerships like this with HP, Hitachi will share cyber threat data to contribute to more sophisticated society-wide cyber security capabilities by enhancing methods to detect and prevent cyber attacks while minimising impact on organisational activities.”
