Apache Spot for Cybersecurity
Apache Spot is a community-driven cybersecurity project, built from the ground up, to bring advanced analytics to all IT Telemetry data on an open, scalable platform. Spot expedites threat detection, investigation, and remediation via machine learning and consolidates all enterprise security data into a comprehensive IT telemetry hub based on open data models. Spot’s scalability and machine learning capabilities support an ecosystem of ML-based applications that can run simultaneously on a single, shared, enriched data set to provide organizations with maximum analytic flexibility. Spot harnesses a diverse community of expertise from Centrify, Cloudera, Cybraics, Endgame, Intel, Jask, Streamsets, and Webroot.
How it works
Apache Spot uses machine learning as a filter for separating bad traffic from benign and to characterize the unique behavior of network traffic. A proven process, of context enrichment, noise filtering, whitelisting and heuristics, is also applied to network data to produce a shortlist of most likely security threats. Apache Spot Open Data Models The primary use case initially supported by Spot includes Network Traffic Analysis for network flows (Netflow, sflow, etc.), DNS and Proxy. The Spot open data model strategy aims to extend Spot capabilities to support a broader set of cybersecurity use cases.
