Two-day virtual event will feature hundreds of osquery industry leaders from high scale companies Netflix, HashiCorp, Stripe, Comcast, and more
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Uptycs, the only cybersecurity platform capable of protecting hybrid cloud, containers, servers, and endpoints from a single UI and data model, announced that osquery@scale 2022 will be held September 14 - 15 in San Francisco at The Exploratorium.
Under the theme "Risk Reduction for Modern Defenders", the fourth iteration of Uptycs' annual conference will provide an interactive forum for security leaders and practitioners from financial services, telco, SaaS, hi-tech, and more to share their experiences of managing risk reduction at scale with osquery.
osquery@scale 2022 will feature a single-track schedule featuring practitioners and industry experts from global brands including Netflix, HashiCorp, Stripe, Comcast, and more. Sessions will be approximately 30-minutes long with time for live Q&A to encourage active discussion among osquery practitioners.
"In the years since we launched the inaugural osquery@scale conference, we continue to be amazed at the adaptability of osquery and its growing community," said Ganesh Pai, CEO of Uptycs. "When Facebook open-sourced osquery 10 years ago, few could have foreseen that its rich, standardized telemetry would go on to deliver deep security insights across endpoints, cloud, containerized environments, identity, and more. osquery is among the most powerful tools for security practitioners and the industry has only just begun to tap into its potential. That's why we are so pleased to be able to have this opportunity to bring the osquery community together again, in person, to network and exchange knowledge."
osquery is a freeware platform enabling security monitoring and analysis of the status of PC devices with Windows, macOS, Linux, and FreeBSD operating systems. Developed in 2014 by Facebook/Meta to help the social network more effectively manage its fleet of macOS laptops, OSquery treats the operating system as a high-performance relational database, allowing users to retrieve system data using standard SQL queries. When creating queries, a rich set of predefined tables is used, each of which represents a specific source of information about events and the current state of the device.
"We created osquery@scale in 2020 with a vision to empower security professionals with best practices on how to operationalize osquery to improve the security posture of their organizations," said Ganesh Pai, CEO, Uptycs. "This fourth installment will deliver on that commitment and more, featuring top executives and osquery practitioners from some of the most prominent companies in the world."
The topics covered at osquery@scale 2022 will include Threat Modeling, Vulnerability Management, eBPF at Scale, and more. Some of the confirmed speakers for the event include:
