WASHINGTON, March 2021
— Cyber Threat Alliance
(CTA), a nonprofit organization working to improve the cybersecurity of the global digital ecosystem, today announced Ericom Software
has joined as a Contributing member, bringing CTA’s membership to 33 companies from across the cybersecurity industry. This step continues to expand the number of security leaders working together to share threat intelligence for a stronger global security ecosystem.
“CTA is excited to welcome Ericom as the newest member of the Alliance. As a provider of Zero Trust solutions, Ericom will both benefit from and contribute to our shared understanding of cyber threats. As with the other members of the Alliance, they recognize the value of collaboration and threat sharing to increasing the overall level of cybersecurity across our digital ecosystem,” said Michael Daniel, President and CEO of the Cyber Threat Alliance. “Moreover, with every member that joins CTA, the value of our shared intelligence increases; Ericom will definitely help increase that value.”
“Businesses and users operate in a continually hostile environment on the web, and the threat actors that operate there continue to innovate and maneuver. We believe collaboration and intelligence sharing among security vendors is critical to seizing the initiative from these adversaries,” said Dr. Chase Cunningham, Chief Strategy Officer at Ericom Software. “Joining the Cyber Threat Alliance helps us better defend our customers by leveraging broader and more globally diverse intelligence data within our Zero Trust solutions. We are excited to join in the good fight with our CTA partner organizations to collectively share these vital intelligence resources.”
The CTA’s members have chosen to share timely, actionable, contextualized and campaign-based intelligence with each other to improve their collective defenses against cyber adversaries. This shared information can be used to improve the members’ products and services to better protect their customers, more systematically thwart adversaries and improve the security of the digital ecosystem. As CTA continues to grow in membership, the quality of intelligence increases and members are able to take impactful and actionable insights to their customer base. CTA members protect customers across all continents and critical infrastructure sectors, and new members will help expand the information available to CTA members by generating new avenues of data, as well as further expanding our global footprint.
