At the Strata + Hadoop world event, Intel and Cloudera announced their support for a cybersecurity project called Apache Spot. Previously known as Open Network Insight, Apache Spot will create an open data model that will enable big data analytics and machine learning technologies to help fight cyberthreats. Spot includes a comprehensive cybersecurity hub, open data models, analytics collaboration, and a rich application ecosystem.
“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 of the analytics and artificial intelligence solutions group at Intel. “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.”
