SAN FRANCISCO, July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Splice Machine, the dual-engine RDBMS for mixed operational and analytical workloads, powered by Hadoop and Spark, today announced that Corax, a startup company that provides cloud-based cyber security operations, analysis and reporting software, has selected Splice Machine to manage its risk quantification calculations, store large datasets and meet future scalability requirements. Leveraging machine learning and a streamlined user interface, Corax will be able to provide faster, meaningful recommendations to its customers about cyber security actions, investment and insurance, helping them make decisions that prevent cyber crime and data loss.
Cyber attacks cost businesses as much as $400 billion a year, according to according to the British insurance market, Lloyds of London. Yet a 2015 Global Cybersecurity Status Report found that only 38 percent of global organizations claim they are prepared to handle a sophisticated cyber attack.
"On a daily basis, Corax ingests tons of data in order to push out meaningful metrics to our customers. With all of this data growth, we needed a database technology that could support heavier data computation logic," said Tom Beale, Chief Technology Officer, Corax. "Splice Machine radicalizes our approach to cyber security by helping us reach new levels of data volume and velocity, all through a single database engine. This allows us to have better insights into our customers' data, which we can then pass onto our customers. Plus, having a cluster-based database technology like Splice Machine will allow us to scale out as we grow our customer base."
Splice Machine is a dual-engine RDBMS for mixed operational and analytical workloads, powered by Hadoop and Spark. Instead of having to synchronize data across multiple compute engines like a traditional Lambda architecture, Corax is able to rely on a less complex architecture with a dual-engine RDBMS, enabling its analytical systems to propagate threat data in real-time, while simultaneously performing compute-heavy analytics jobs – all from one data source.
"Cyber attacks have become a pervasive problem throughout the world and their impact on businesses can be profoundly negative," said Monte Zweben, co-founder and CEO, Splice Machine. "Real-time analytics from Big Data is one of the most effective defenses against these cyber invasions. With Splice Machine, Corax has a scalable database that allows it to continually add more data sources, while maintaining high performance and avoiding the 'enterprise duct tape' that drives up cost and complexity in other architectures."
