Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) March 09, 2015
On Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 1:00pm ET, Richard Stiennon will join Sqrrl for a webinar discussing the Cybersecurity Big Data Revolution.
Evolution in cybersecurity is the norm. As computer threats evolve, so have defenses. The debilitating effect of viruses borne by email gave rise to the what is now a vast anti-virus infrastructure. The rise of network-based attacks created the incrementalism of constant updates to IDS and IPS. The inability to make sense of millions of IDS alerts gave rise to SIEM solutions.
Join Sqrrl to hear from Richard Stiennon, industry analyst and author of Surviving Cyberwar, and from Luis Maldonado, Sqrrl VP of Products. In this webinar you will learn:
- Richard’s perspective on cybersecurity evolution vs. revolution
- How Sqrrl is on the forefront of the revolution in cybersecurity by leveraging Big Data Analytics and Linked Data techniques
- How the Sqrrl Enterprise tool unites cyber incident detection and response efforts and is used for cyber hunting, APT mitigation, and insider threat response.
