Executive Summary

Big Data Security Analytics techniques are critical to hunt for advanced cyber threats. Starting with just some hypotheses, a seasoned threat hunter can use a Big Data tool, such as Sqrrl's threat hunting platform, to iterate through large amounts of data and detect anomalies that would otherwise go unnoticed by traditional defenses. While more and more companies are attempting to build cyber threat hunting capabilities, few tools exist to assist analysts in the challenges of the hunt. The expansion of data science capabilities into the cybersecurity realm holds great promise for the advancement of cyber hunting. Sqrrl’s David Bianco sheds some light on these crucial developments surrounding the rise of threat hunting, and how Sqrrl’s solution can provide these much needed solutions.
