Evolution of Collective Defense

The notion of Collective Defense is nothing new. From a geopolitical standpoint, NATO has upheld the principles of Collective Defense for decades through its long-standing military alliance. As NATO famously stated: an attack against one member is considered an attack against all members.

The same principle applies in this new approach to cybersecurity, where organizations work together as a unified front in the face of constant threat of cyber attack from nation states, hackers, and criminals. These threat actors are known to work together to share techniques, forming an effective “collective offense” to infiltrate organizations. Through faster sharing of behavioral analytics, signature-based, and human threat insights, organizations collaborating via Collective Defense can more effectively spot malicious activity and greatly reduce attacker dwell time to mitigate threats before damage occurs.

Shared intelligence. Proven impact.

Collective Defense delivers:

Visibility across enterprise ecosystems

Real-time, machine-speed sharing between large and small enterprise peers quickly reveals detected anomalies across all stages of the Cyber Kill Chain in situational context. With such instant visibility, security teams can triage and respond quickly to mitigate otherwise unknown attacks targeting their enterprises and the broader collective defense community.

Group level detection and correlation

Advanced behavioral analysis at the IronDome level enables detection of unknown or stealthy threats targeting your business ecosystem, industry, region, or custom IronDome Collective Defense group.

Instant collaboration with fellow defenders

Automatic sharing of investigation notes and triage outcomes helps optimize security response and increases defensive economies of scale across all IronDome members.
“The value proposition associated with the Dome is not just about Con Edison. It’s about the entire sector — and other sectors — that are at risk from a cyberattack. Understanding what’s going on in those networks compared to ours makes us collectively stronger and better able to mitigate those risks.”
— Manny Cancel,
former VP and CIO of Con Edison
