Big Data and Data Science Security White Paper
We are excited to announce our first white paper, describing the unique strengths of Sift Security's data science technology. There are a lot of overblown promises about big data in every industry, including cybersecurity, so we wanted to give you some concrete information about what we do and why it works.
Read the paper to learn about:
- The relational graph that transforms reams of system logs and netflow data into meaningful connections between entities like users, hosts, and processes. We put the flood of flashing alerts from antivirus and firewall products into proper context, where serious threats stand out like bright clusters.
- The anomaly detection pipeline, based on recent mathematics research at Stanford and MIT. It's scalable, of course, and works out of the box to start finding suspicious patterns of behavior. While many anomaly detection products require a period of perfect clean data to learn "normal" behavior, our product can operate on real data collected from an enterprise, even one already under attack.
- The feedback loop running on top of our other algorithms that helps the product get more accurate with use. Over time, Sift Security customizes its estimates of risk to the specifics of a company’s environment.
Of course we can't give away all the details in a blog post! To learn more, get your own copy of the white paper: email firstname.lastname@example.org.
