About Consortium Networks
Consortium Network's intelligence forum is a group of subject matter experts who share information about the technologies they have deployed to solve complex business security problems. Participants share intelligence on established companies and new start-ups and the emerging risks and problems they solve. As a result, the Consortium maintains lists of technologies and solution providers that can help you address a security breach or incident.
The Consortium is the first organization dedicated to providing real-world feedback and data on tools used in production environments at peer organizations.
