King & Union Launches Partnership with Global Resilience Foundation

Joining the GRF Alliance Program, King & Union now offers their Avalon platform to GRF members at a discounted rate, helping them combat threats using real-time multi-party analysis and sharing at scale.

Alexandria, VA and Reston, VA, USA – June 20, 2019 – King & Union and Global Resilience Federation (GRF) today announced a partnership offering a discount on the King & Union Avalon platform to interested GRF members and affiliated companies. Avalon enables GRF members and affiliated companies to work together using real-time multi-party analysis and sharing at scale to efficiently investigate, create, and deliver finished intelligence to key stakeholders across all levels of their organization.

"Collaboration and visualization are critical capabilities that security teams need in order to make investigations more efficient and effective," said John Cassidy, CEO and co-founder of King & Union. "We're excited to partner with GRF and offer a platform that is able to optimize cross-sector collaboration and analysis efforts through Avalon."

Modern security operations are overrun with data and manual processes. “Cut and paste” workflow, unwieldy spreadsheets, and awkward email chains used by many security analysts draw them further away from actual analysis. These problems are further compounded by the shortage of skilled staff, manual workflows, excessive administrative tasking, and lack of digestible reporting to articulate results of investment in technology and personnel. King & Union’s flagship product, Avalon, is a Software-as-a-Service platform developed to simplify analysis and reporting and reduce the time security teams spend on manual, administrative tasks.

The GRF member network encompasses nine sharing communities from financial services, healthcare, energy, retail, legal services and professional services. These affiliated communities and their constituent member companies can now access discounted King & Union tools to help leverage their security feeds, of which GRF is an integrator.

“GRF is diligent about engaging cybersecurity and threat intelligence solutions that support our members with security and operational challenges,” said Bill Nelson, Chairman and CEO of GRF. “We are glad to have King & Union join us as an Alliance Program partner and offer their tools and integrations for member companies and staff.”

Promotion for GRF Members
