From intrusion detection to threat analysis to endpoint security, the effectiveness of cybersecurity efforts often boils down to how much data can be processed in real-time with the most advanced algorithms and models.
Many factors are obviously involved in stopping cybersecurity threats effectively. However, the databases responsible for processing the billions or trillions of events per day (from millions of endpoints) play a particularly crucial role. High throughput and low latency directly correlate with better insights as well as more threats discovered and mitigated in near real-time. Cybersecurity data-intensive systems are incredibly complex: many span 4+ data centers with database clusters exceeding 1000 nodes and petabytes of heterogeneous data under active management.
