Thales and security company ESET have announced that they will work together. The aim is to integrate ESET cyber threat intelligence into the Cyber Threat Intelligence centre.

This collaboration makes it possible for Thales to handle and analyse the raw data on malicious software collected by ESET. This should result in better security for customers of both companies.

Better analysis

The new information flow will be added to the more than 120 other sources used by the Thales Cyber Threat Intelligence centre. With the data collected by ESET worldwide, analysts from Thales can map cyber threats faster and more accurately.

This, in turn, should lead to better protection. The collaboration will extend Thales’ attack detection tools with five hundred new detection rules. The rules are part of the detection platform in the Cyber Security Operation Center.

In particular, the CybelsSensor probe was recently approved by the French National Cyber Security Centre (ANSSI). This reduces the time needed to identify and qualify an incident by 50%.

Acquisition of Gemalto

In April, Thales increased its presence in the security market through the acquisition of security company Gemalto. The company then said that together with Gemalto it made a giant in digital identity and security, with opportunities to compete with the big players worldwide. After the acquisition, Thales’ digital business was combined with Gemalto’s digital business.

In the same month, ESET started working with Google sister company Chronicle to provide essential validation of security incidents and reports via Backstory. Backstory is a Chronicle cloud service where companies can upload, store and analyze their security telemetry. This allows them to detect and investigate possible attacks.
