Catch a hacker in realtime: Live visuals of bots and bad guys

Catch a hacker in realtime: Live visuals of bots and bad guys

Wednesday, June 20
2:50 PM - 3:30 PM
Meeting Room 230B

Cybersecurity today is a big data problem. There’s a ton of data landing on you faster than you can load, let alone search it. In order to make sense of it we need to act on data in motion, and use both machine learning, and the most advanced pattern recognition system on the planet: your SOC analysts. Advanced visualization makes your analysts more efficient, helps them find the hidden gems, or bombs, in masses of logs and packets.

In our live demo, we will catch some hackers compromising authentication systems to steal passwords. We will detect, and stop a botnet looking to steal our resources. Zoomdata’s real-time visualization will show data streamed and enriched by Apache Metron, and present a rich view for analysts to see all their organization’s security data and drill down fast to the specific areas that represent an early problem – before it becomes a major breach.
