Solving Cybersecurity At Scale

Wednesday, February 6
2:50 PM - 3:30 PM
Room 103


This is where community collaboration and open source efforts like Apache Metron come in. Metron presents a comprehensive framework for application and network, security built on Apache Hadoop and open source Streaming Analytics(ie Apache Nifi, Apache Kafka) tool’s highly scalable data management and processing stacks. Advanced features like profiling, machine learning, and visualization work with real-time streaming detection to make your SOC analysts more efficient, while the intrinsic extensibility of open source helps your data scientists get security insights out of the lab and into production fast.

We will discuss and demonstrate how some real-world businesses and managed service providers are using Apache Metron to identify and solve security threats at scale, and some approaches and ideas for how the platform can fit into your security architecture.
