Faced with an aging legacy Insider Threat Detection system that didn't scale well and lacked reliability, the instrumentation team at the bank turned to Apache Spark and Kafka to re-build their Insider Threat Detection models and execution environment.
Impetus StreamAnalytix partnered with the bank to perform rapid Apache Spark application development and production deployment.
Impetus StreamAnalytix was selected as a result of a rigorous head-to-head comparison with other vendor solutions. They were able to execute a proof-of-concept within a matter of weeks which delivered 2-3.3X faster performance over other competitive solutions, offered a simpler developer GUI, an ability to trace records from the GUI, better product stability and uptime, as well as a more aggressive vendor product investment roadmap. Using StreamAnalytix, they were able to onboard many more applications for threat detection and support them with the same amount of hardware.
This talk will elaborate on the problem to be solved, the solution selection process, project details, results, and lessons learned.
