Security in the Age of Maybe

Posted by Graphistry Team on May 14, 2018

Security is in the midst of a transformation that is putting extreme pressure on security analysts and hunt teams. One shift that is causing teams a lot of pain in their daily work is that as threats have gotten more sophisticated, security products have gotten much less sure of themselves. Security products increasingly detect the “anomalous” and report threats on a sliding scale of confidence. Not only must staff deal with advanced threats, but they must spend an increasing amount of time navigating the grey areas and ambiguities of modern threat detections to determine and deliver the right actions.

Welcome to the  Age of Maybe, where it is critical that we arm analysts for dealing with the indicators that are diverse, widespread...and uncertain.

Connecting JS to modern GPU and ML frameworks: Update from Nvidia GTC 2018

Posted by Graphistry Team on Apr 4, 2018

The Graphistry team is excited to report: production-grade open GPU compute is coming to JavaScript with the Apache Arrow[JS] project and GOAI. We have been contributing to these projects because they are big enablers for the web. In our case, that means we can build best-of-class visual fastpaths for security and fraud teams struggling to investigate through tools like Splunk, Elastic, and Hadoop.

Graphs as the User Interface for AI

Posted by Graphistry Team on Mar 6, 2018

O'Reilly's Data Show recently had our CEO, Leo Meyerovich, on to talk about why and how enterprises and data teams are adopting graph technology. You can check it out here where we dive into how we are using graphs as an interface to AI tools & data. 

Meanwhile, our team is on the move. Let us know if you'll be near one of our upcoming talks and events - we love catching up with current & new users!

Playbook Coverage as a Reliability KPI: A note on our NYC InfoSec  talk

Posted by Leo Meyerovich on Jan 10, 2018

 

Ron Gula's (ex-Tenable CEO) fireside chat at the NYC Infosec Meetup got serious when he questioned whether to optimize security team efficacy vs. efficiency. This dovetailed beautifully with our tech talk right before.  When we explain visual playbooks, people quickly see how they cut MTTR, which in turn gets at both efficacy and efficiency. This has led us to think about what KPIs to focus on, so I ended up presenting a different take: focus on reliability... and an actionable KPI around that, playbook coverage.

Supercharging Visualization with Apache Arrow

Posted by Graphistry Team on Jan 5, 2018

A key part of making big data useful is figuring out how to deliver the massive power of GPUs to  standard commodity browsers in a way that is both fast and interactive. This is a major area of innovation for us at Graphistry, and we recently got a chance team up with our friends over at Dremio to talk about how we are using Apache Arrow to change how data is visualized in the browser.  Take a look and let us know what you think.

On Amazon's Growing Graph Capabilities with Neptune's Launch & Sqrrl Acquisition

Posted by Graphistry Team on Dec 21, 2017

Amazon is investing heavily in graph technologies, which is worth paying attention to. Between launching Neptune and the likely acquisition of Sqrrl (on top of other security acquisitions!), they’ve been busy.  For our users and those interested in the broader space, we thought it’d help to share our perspective. Graphistry’s mission is to power the next generation of investigation and visualization technologies, so we’ve been quite active on adjacent problems.

Arming Analysts for the Era of APIs & AIs

Posted by Leo Meyerovich on Dec 12, 2017

Federal investigators aren’t normally the type to thank you for making their dreams come true. But, as we’ve started sharing Graphistry, that sort of sentiment has become just another week around here.
