ForgeRock and FireEye Join Forces to Detect Cyber Attacks with Identity-Aware Threat Intelligence Solution

Wednesday, January 21, 2015.

Integration of FireEye Threat Analytics Platform and the ForgeRock Identify Platform will enable organisations to correlate identity-based intrusions with enterprise-wide threat indicators.

ForgeRock Inc., the leading open source provider of Identity Relationship Management (IRM) solutions, and FireEye, Inc., the leader in combatting modern advanced cyber attacks, today announced an integration of intelligence from the ForgeRock Identity Platform with the FireEye Threat Analytics Platform (TAP), to provide enhanced security incident detection and response management.

The integration brings together core aspects of identity management and security intelligence, to deliver a unified dashboard to help security teams identify attacks based on compromised credentials.

Through this unified effort, data from the ForgeRock Identity Platform is integrated into FireEye TAP, a cloud-based security incident detection and response management platform. When combined with ForgeRock's real-time intelligence of end users, FireEye TAP is designed to allow organisations to make timely security decisions based on location, IP address, time, known device and other contextual variables, and provide a more comprehensive picture of when and how advanced attackers are targeting them. Actionable intelligence is prioritised according to risk, helping organisations to more quickly detect advanced attacks and insider threats.

"Digital identities are at the center of every online interaction, and essential to achieving a 360 degree, closed-looped security model. We are thrilled to become a FireEye technology alliance partner, providing our customers with real-time, dynamic identity data, paired with high-quality threat indicators to better protect their networks from malicious attacks. The integration solution provides a unique way to quickly gather security intelligence and provide it to customer organisations, so they can speed threat detection and remediation," said Mike Ellis, CEO at ForgeRock.

"FireEye and our Mandiant Services team are at the forefront of identifying the sources of today's advanced threats, and we've seen compromised user credentials emerge as a common attack technique in the majority of data breaches across almost every industry," said Steve Pataky, Vice President of Worldwide Channels and Alliances at FireEye.

"This integration allows us to use near real-time identity context from ForgeRock paired with FireEye's expanding database of threat indicators, along with event and log information from across the enterprise, to provide more visibility into these threats. This intelligence enables a more complete assessment of risk, allowing FireEye to alert security teams of suspicious activity and help protect enterprises against attacks," continued Pataky.
