Industry initiative to bring interoperability and data sharing across cybersecurity products
Formed under the auspices of OASIS, the Open Cybersecurity Alliance (OCA) brings together organizations and individuals from around the world to develop open source security technologies which can freely exchange information, insights, analytics, and orchestrated responses.
Corsa Security joins IBM Security, McAfee, Fortinet and other security leaders to collaborate on this new initiative at OASIS.
The purpose of the OCA is to develop and promote sets of open source common content, code, tooling, patterns, and practices for interoperability and sharing data among cybersecurity tools. For enterprise users, this means:
- Improving security visibility and ability to discover new insights and findings that might otherwise have been missed;
- Extracting more value from existing products and reducing vendor lock-in;
- Connecting data and sharing insights across products.
“Cybersecurity systems will be strongest and most able to effectively adapt and respond to changing threats when communication and connectivity within the ecosystem is open. Corsa Security is part of OCA to create such an open environment and build towards highly effective cyber systems.”Carolyn Raab, Chief Product Officer, Corsa Security
One of the most respected, member-driven standards bodies in the world, OASIS offers projects – including open source projects – a path to standardization and de jure approval for reference in international policy and procurement. OASIS has a broad technical agenda encompassing cybersecurity, privacy, cryptography, cloud computing and IoT – any initiative for developing code, APIs, specifications or reference implementations can find a home at OASIS.
