The platform has been built around the ThreatExchange framework and Facebook infrastructure. The partners in the program can share as much as information they want. They could also decide the company they want to share the data with. In addition to the existing partners, Facebook has opened the registration process to allow other companies to join the platform if they are interested in integrating the ThreatExchange APIs.


Facebook manager of threat and infrastructure, Mark Hammell says:

“Our goal is that organizations anywhere will be able to use ThreatExchange to share threat information more easily, learn from each other’s discoveries, and make their own systems safer. That’s the beauty of working together on security. When one company gets stronger, so do the rest of us.”
