Bangalore: Trend Micro contributed research and resources to support MITRE’s development of the new Container Framework. The cybersecurity company’s threat intelligence contributed dominated in building this new Container framework, the company said in a statement.
MITRE ATT&CK is a globally accessible knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques based on real-world observations. A long list of cybersecurity companies along with tech companies contributes to MITRE ATT&CK.
Trend Micro threat intelligence heavily contributed to the development of ATT&CK for Containers. It collaborated with MITRE, providing several years of dedicated research as evidence-based input that the framework used.
“Trend Micro was one of the companies that answered our call to the community when we began developing ATT&CK for Containers through the Center for Threat-Informed Defense,” said MITRE Lead cybersecurity engineer Jen Burns.
“We are all working to help companies stay protected against attacks using knowledge bases like ATT&CK as a common language. Contributors like Trend Micro, with expertise and experience with real-world attacks, help us support the security community in reaching that goal,” added Burns.
The cybersecurity company provided evidence from real-world attacks to support seven MITRE Techniques. Two of these techniques are new and unique to ATT&CK for Containers. Businesses can use these techniques to better understand how attackers are targeting container environments and how to protect from these threats.
“It has been a privilege to support MITRE through the development of their new container framework,” said Wendy Moore, VP – Product Marketing, Trend Micro.
“The extensive research community within Trend Micro is always focused on helping protect our customers and the broader digital world from the threats of today and tomorrow,” added Moore.
Further, “We saw containers as a growing opportunity for attackers several years ago and have worked hard to get ahead of these threats. Partnerships like this with MITRE give our work a broader influence and we are happy to support their efforts,” she commented.
