Fujitsu has demonstrated its ability to link and achieve mutual compatibility between its in-house-developed cyber threat intelligence (CTI)(1) utilization system and the US Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) system for sharing CTI provided through its Automated Indicator Sharing (AIS) program which rapidly shares cyber threat indicators between government and private companies.
By linking these systems, Fujitsu will be able to analyze both the CTI it already possesses as well as the CTI from AIS. In so doing, when a cyberattack occurs, threat indicators about attacks with the same or similar elements, as well as intelligence about countermeasures can be rapidly supplied from AIS and used to respond. In addition, by setting the link so that the latest CTI is uploaded onto AIS and automatically reflected to Fujitsu’s security products and services that protect customer systems, Fujitsu can automate tasks such as the addition of rules to respond to new cyberattacks, which previously had to be done manually. This shortens the work time required of those responsible for cybersecurity and reduces the chance for mistakes.
Fujitsu is positioning this CTI utilization system as a linchpin in building a proactive defense against an expanding number of cyberattacks. Going forward, Fujitsu will link this system with its security products and services for malware detection and other tasks in response to the latest cyberattacks.
