Founded in 2013, Comilion publicly launched the industry’s first decen-tralized platform that enables secure and private bidirectional collaboration within and between organizations in tightly-regulated environments on July 30, 2015. The Comilion platform removes govern-mental, compliance & corporate policy obstacles that currently prevent security collaboration across company, country and industry boundaries.
Kobi Freedman is co-founder and CEO of Comilion. Kobi has been immersed in the cyber security arena for over 15 years, first in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and then working with private sector companies. He participates in numerous Israeli and global policy work groups that set standards for cyber defense.
Private and Compliant Security Collaboration
Comilion has developed the world’s first on-premise, fully-decentralized unified collaboration platform for inter-company security intelligence sharing and threat investigations. The platform ensures private and compliant security collaboration in tightly-regulated industries. Through various integration capabilities, Comilion automates “need-to-know” sharing and collaboration on threat indicators, malicious activity and critical security-related trends. It uses customizable sharing policies, a relevancy based sharing (RBS) model and multi-jurisdictional regulation enforcement engine to control access to information within collaboration communities. Participants maintain ownership of their data, avoid regulatory compliance violations and only receive data that is relevant to their environment.
While Comilion was getting started, the market for security threat, sharing and collaboration was ripening quickly with cyber security and governmental drivers and Comilion have developed an effective technology to address the technical hurdles and privacy/ regulatory concerns associated with sharing and collaboration. Therefore, the company is experiencing fast growing demand in several markets. Some of the world’s leading financial institutions are already deploying Comilion to implement closed, self-managed communities to detect and mitigate cyber-threats.
Comilion provides organizations with secure, private and automated security collaboration networks. Comilion uses a decentralized, on-premise, peer-to-peer approach with Relevancy Based Sharing and data ownership proprietary mechanisms. This prevents data sharing that would violate industry regulations, enforces cross-border geo-political legislation and corporate confidentiality policies by auto-matically monitoring data sharing and enforcing pre-defined rules to ensure compliance across multiple jurisdictions and vertical markets. “Privacy by Design”, EU Data Protection Directive, SOX, BASEL III.
Comilion’s approach goes beyond simply sending/receiving security intelligence and provides a framework for setting up scalable networks where only relevant information is delivered to organizations that are at risk from specific threats, that automatically control the flow of collaboration to prevent participants from violating privacy laws and regulatory mandates, and can enforce internal policies designated by each participant. It enables multi-national and cross jurisdictional sharing of regulated data.
Comilion is also the only fully decentralized P2P collaborative sharing platform which facilitates compliant, cross-industry security collaboration in regulated markets. Closed, self-managed communities enable real-time threat identification, mitigation, and interaction.
Awareness extends throughout the Security Community
Since security collaboration is an early stage technology and requirements are being added daily as awareness extends throughout the security community and is discussed and challenged in the public domain, Comilion is investing heavily in new features and capabilities to extend its platform.
