PALO ALTO, CA: Cloudera, a provider of modern data management and analytics platform built on Apache Hadoop, announces Open Network Insight (ONI) project in partnership with cyber-security vendors.
ONI v1.0 project is an open source, community-developed network data model that provides visibility into security threats using big data analytics. ONI uses machine learning to make suspicious network traffic stand out from normal, safe traffic. ONI runs on top of Cloudera’s enterprise data hub (EDH) and other open big data platforms.
ONI seeks to tackle the dual challenges of unlocking innovation in cyber-security while helping each vendor to avoid having to reinvent the same wheel again and again. “The differences in vendor data models also create silos between solutions and make it difficult for customers to harness innovation from multiple vendors. ONI accelerates solution development and simplifies customer consumption of different vendor products”, says Tom Reilly, Chief Executive Officer, Cloudera.
Cloudera's aims to foster development of open object models beyond network to include endpoint, and user/identity. Cloudera’s cyber-security focused partners are leveraging ONI to accelerate their delivery of advanced solutions capitalizing on a pre-built open data model coupled with the powerful compute capabilities of Cloudera’s Enterprise Data Hub.
Cloudera’s rich ecosystem of cyber security partners have already begun to rally around ONI in order to accelerate new cyber security solutions to market. Cloudera is partnering with companies such as CounterTack, Splunk, Intel, E8 Security and Securonix in its cyber-security efforts.
Cloudera’s first OEM cyber-security partner, CounterTack’s Tom Bain, Vice President of Global Marketing says, "Cyber-security technology has evolved from being deployed to protect and safeguard, to data-centric, analytics-driven use cases to ensure the integrity of business systems. Integrating a true big data platform into Sentinel enables CounterTack customers to leverage the powerful sensor collection capabilities at scale for consistent, rapid consumption of the richest endpoint intelligence in the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) marketplace."
