Apache Metron in the Real World – Big Data and Cybersecurity, a Perfect Match

In this session we’ll be looking at a number of different organisations who are on their big data cybersecurity journey with Apache Metron, we will take a look at the different usecases they are investigating, the data sources they used, the analytics they performed and in some cases the results they were able to find.

We’ll also spend some time talking about the common themes in these projects, there are some common approaches to using Apache Metron as a phased project in a project, we’ll review some of the common pitfalls and give some concrete suggestions about the things you should (and shouldn’t) do when you’re getting started.

Finally we’ll try and tackle some of the key FAQ’s that come up when people are first investigating the potential usage of Apache Metron in the real world based on over a year of interacting with customers and prospects as they look deeper into Apache Metron to see how it fits in to their cybersecurity portfolio.
