Do data breaches keep you up at night? Cybercriminals use different tactics at each stage of the breach. Although there are hundreds of security solutions, products and consultants that claim to solve and address data breaches, they lack the modern data-driven capabilities to detect anomalies and connect the dots that trace the path from reconnaissance and entry to possible attempts at data exfiltration.

Platfora can help. Big Data Analytics is in our DNA. We let your security analysts be security domain experts so that they can ask the right questions to discover sequence of attacks and understand the impact on their business. We help do the rest for you.

Join this webinar with security analytics experts John Pescatore, Director of Emerging Security Trends at the SANS Institute, and Mustafa Rassiwala, Director of Product Management at Platfora to learn how you can prevent and win against targeted attacks by:

  • Transforming and connecting Multi-structured data
  • Analyzing petabytes of data at scale (years vs. months)
  • Deriving visual insights and iterating in minutes, not months
