New Context, the leading provider of Lean Security for software and infrastructure development and sponsor of the OASIS Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) Technical Committee, today shared a strong, positive outlook for CTI open standards STIX and TAXII amid news that Soltra is being phased out.
Despite a short term impact on current Soltra customers, the standards are so widespread they will continue to flourish as an effective way for the cybersecurity community to share threat intelligence.
Soltra was a joint venture between Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC), an organization focused on sharing critical cyber threat information worldwide, and The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), the premier post-trade market infrastructure for the global financial services industry. Soltra was an early adopter of STIX and TAXII standards. Soltra Edge has been downloaded more than 11,000 times and is being used by 2,900 organizations in over 77 countries.
“When DTCC and FS-ISAC announced the decision to wind down Soltra, a common concern was what this will mean for the future of STIX and TAXII,” said Andrew Storms, Vice President of Security Services for New Context. “Despite a short term impact on current Soltra customers, the standards are so widespread they will continue to flourish as an effective way for the cybersecurity community to share threat intelligence.”
Currently, over 50 open source and commercial tools use STIX or TAXII standards, a number that is expected to grow.
“Momentum is building for global threat sharing programs and automated threat response,” Storms added.”The OASIS CTI Technical Committee has expanded to include a variety of organizations and industries around the world, and an increasing number of businesses and governments across the globe are seeing the value of this collaborative approach. Using machine-to-machine cybersecurity threat feeds, we will continue to build automated threat response within customer networks using STIX and TAXII open standards. We feel strongly that these standards remain the future of CTI.”
In 2015, STIX and TAXII were moved to OASIS from The MITRE Corporation and New Context joined the OASIS CTI Technical Committee, which remains one of the largest and most active committees.
