I’m sure many of you will have tried out the predictive features in ITSI, and you may even have a model or two running in production to predict potential outages before they occur. While we present a lot of useful metrics about the models’ performance at the time of training, how can you make sure that it is still generating accurate predictions? Inaccuracy in models as the underlying data or systems change over time is natural.

Today’s software is incredibly complicated and creates tons of data. Metrics, logs, and traces are generated constantly by hundreds of services for even simple applications. Every transaction can generate on the order of kilobytes of metadata about the transaction — and multiplying that to account for even a small amount of concurrency can create a few megabytes a second (or ~300GB/day) of data that needs to be captured and analyzed for later use.

Every career has defining moments. Most are spread out over years or even decades, but the cybersecurity world has had two career-defining moments just in the past year. It started with the global shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Overnight, many organizations were forced to support employees working remotely. CISOs, like me, were expected to keep both our company and its employees safe in a completely unpredictable world.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently announced the launch of CloudWatch Metric Streams. Cloudwatch Streams can stream metrics from a number of different AWS resources using Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose to target destinations. The new service is different from the current architecture. Instead of polling, metrics are delivered via an Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose stream. This is a highly scalable and far more efficient way to retrieve AWS service metrics.

Despite the myriad pathways to initial access on our networks, phishing remains the single most popular technique for attackers. The open nature of email and our reliance on it for communication make it difficult for defenders to classify messages, so it is no surprise that suspicious email investigation is a top use case for automation. Today, we are releasing a new community playbook for Splunk SOAR (previously Splunk Phantom) to help enrich suspicious email events.

Financial crime has become a red-hot topic over the last 12 months, as fraudsters have sought to exploit the monitoring gaps between people, process and technology across an ever-widening attack surface – driven by the growth in usage of remote (digital) channels. Even before its recent growth, the cost of fraud and financial crime was significant.

Gaining insights from your data requires more than collecting and analyzing metrics and logs. With the acceleration of customer and business demands, site reliability engineers and IT Ops analysts now require operational visibility into their entire architecture, something that traditional APM tools, dev logging tools, and SRE tools aren’t equipped to provide. Observability enables you to inspect and understand your IT stack; but what is it, and how does it differ from IT monitoring?

Most IT organizations have adopted event management as a central practice to help find and fix what’s broken, but today's tools focus on managing the volume of events—they do not deliver service context. Without context, you are ill-equipped to focus on the right problem at the right time. What you need is something different—something that makes IT events less eventful and more insightful—and now, you can finally do it!
