Why now

Getting the right security data at scale is today’s biggest challenge both technically and financially.

  • NetFlow is incomplete, making analytics worthless
  • Full packet captures are storage and performance intensive, making them cost prohibitive
  • Teams that choose to deploy and maintain open-source Zeek must face the resource- and time-intensive upkeep, while the data they get is hard to use

“…forensic tools sought to collect raw packets at large scale, but today’s fast networks made this approach impractical…”

Gartner, March 18, 2019 (ID: G00373460)

“…55% cited their inability to detect advanced threats as the biggest challenge for SOCs.”

2018 survey by Crowd Research Partners

“The average time to identify a breach in 2019 was 206 days.”
