Excerpt: By opening DXL to the industry through an open software development kit (SDK), more enterprises, developers, and organizations can participate to expand the value and impact of a DXL deployment: we are activating the Network Effect. The SDK enables a unified model for integrating software vendors’ best ideas with in-house developed and legacy systems to turn an unwieldy, unsustainable set of tools and data sets into a system that functions in real time and is easier to build, test, and maintain consistently. It reduces the error, disruption, and change that create vulnerability up front and over the business’ life. Together—through better sharing of intelligence and tighter integration of the systems that use it—we as an industry create a security operations platform that connects the good guys in a collaborative team.
