The Future of GPU Analytics Using NVIDIA RAPIDS and Graphistry

Posted by Graphistry Team on Oct 22, 2018

When everything runs on GPUs, we can fundamentally shift the way we experience data analysis much like video moving to HD or shifting from black-and-white to color. What if you could load your full dataset, ask whole-table questions like what are the patterns, and get the answers... immediately? What if you could do that visually, replacing writing queries with simple infinite zoom and direct manipulations down to the level of individual data points? Core analytics areas like security, fraud, operations, and customer 360 are entering this sci-fi-level world of rapid hypothesis iteration.

Graphistry + Bro Logs for Faster IR and Threat Hunting

Posted by Graphistry Team on Sep 20, 2018

Incident responders and threat hunters are often facing a bit of an analytical catch-22. They typically have access to more and higher fidelity data sources than ever before, yet the volume and complexity of the data can often make it hard to see the point that matters.

Building for the Human Half of Security Orchestration & AI

Posted by Graphistry Team on Jun 29, 2018

Learning to Whitebox the SOC-in-a-Box

Even as organizations automate their security operations with orchestration and AI, some of the most important parts of security investigations continue to depend on human analysis and talent. These critical moments in the investigation remain frustratingly slow, and need categorically different technologies that are optimized for human-in-the-loop analysis.

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.

Graphistry in the Verizon DBIR

Posted by Graphistry Team on Apr 11, 2018

Today, Verizon released the 2018 edition of the Data Breach Investigation Report, and the Graphistry team is proud to have been able to contribute to the report. In fact, the cover of the report is a stylized and simplified version of our graph analysis that you can see on page 56 of the report!

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.
