Revolutionizing Cyber Security w/ Data Science


Cyber Security is a big challenge for Enterprise customers.  Consider today’s enterprise – it is filled with security tools most of whose underlying technology and principles are ten or more years old.  At high level there are two classes of attacks - external cyber attacks and insider threats. With cyber criminals to nation state attacks the threat landscape has dramatically changed and it is constantly evolving. The security breaches are undetected because lack of next-gen threat detection products and technologies. Enterprise customers are demanding next-generation solutions  for early breach threat detection, continuous, proactive threat monitoring, detection and prevention. The advent of new class of Cyber Attacks has increased the bar on the type of threat detection required to correlate indicators of compromise at large scale. These new security analytics need to take into account real-time and batch machine learning algorithms in a unique way to uncover the stealth characteristics of cyber attacks.
