Open Source Community Continues Fight Against Cybercrime with Apache Spot (incubating)
STRATA+HADOOP WORLD NEW YORK, NY, Sept. 27, 2016 -- Cloudera, the global provider of the fastest, easiest, and most secure data management and analytics platform built on Apache Hadoop and the latest open source technologies, today announced a proposal in collaboration with Intel to donate Spot to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Apache Spot (incubating), formerly called Open Network Insight (ONI), is a community-developed open source project started by Intel that aims to increase visibility into security threats by providing advanced threat detection using big data analytics and machine learning.
By leveraging Apache Hadoop for infinite log management and data storage scale, and Apache Spark for machine learning and near real-time anomaly detection, organizations and cybersecurity application developers are unlocking new analytics functionality unmatched by previous applications. Spot allows organizations to more effectively harness the power of this technology and data science skills in the Apache big data ecosystem for detecting unknown cyber threats.
“The proposed donation of Spot to the Apache Software Foundation marks a momentous occasion for the cybersecurity industry and the project,” said Tom Reilly, chief executive officer at Cloudera. “Our collaborations with leading organizations and the community at large is unlocking unprecedented analytic threat sharing capabilities.”
“The open source community is the perfect environment for Apache Spot to take a collective, peer-driven approach to fighting cybercrime,” said Ron Kasabian, vice president and general manager, Analytics & Artificial Intelligence Solutions Group at Intel Corporation. “The combined expertise of contributors will help further Apache Spot’s open data model vision and provide the grounds for collaboration on the world’s toughest and constantly evolving challenges in cybersecurity analytics.”
Since Spot’s launch earlier this year, Intel, Cloudera and their collaborators, including Anomoli, Centrify, Cloudwick, Cybraics, eBay, Endgame, Jask, Streamsets and Webroot, have been building momentum behind the project as the community continues to rally behind the vision for Apache Spot:
Looking at Gartner’s Market Trends report, 60% of the User Behavior Analytics applications and 25% of Network Traffic Analytics applications are building on CDH already. With Apache Spot optimized for CDH, Apache Spot is poised to accelerate the development of the next generation of cybersecurity applications.
