StreamAlert: A Serverless, Real-time Intrusion Detection Engine

Tuesday, January 31, 2017 - 9:30am–10:00am

Jack Naglieri, Security @ Airbnb


StreamAlert is a serverless, real-time intrusion detection engine. By building upon technologies such as AWS (platform-as-a-service), Terraform (infrastructure-as-code) and Chef (configuration-as-code), any Security organization can quickly deploy StreamAlert and have it scale to terabytes per hour. StreamAlert enables you to write both simple and complex rules against any of your application, system, or network logs. StreamAlert will remove all of the headaches typically associated with availability, scalability, segmentation, and maintenance (patching, upgrades, etc...). This lets your team focus on their core competency—catching attackers.
