With the rise of IoT, protection against botnets is ever more important. Recent attacks have seen bad actors renting out networks of hundreds of thousands of compromised devices, sending over a terabyte of traffic a second. With botnets as a service, and cloud-like technology being used against us, how can we keep up, find the compromised devices, and stop them, before they stop our networks? The answer is highly scalable, high speed streaming platforms, and human-in-the-loop analytics supported by state of the art real-time visualization.
