Fighting Unpredictable Analytics Costs With All-You-Can-Ingest Pricing

Oct 10, 2018 4:07:31 PM / by Corey Thuen posted in Case study, Gravwell Story, Analytics Economics

0 Comments

One of the biggest complaints that’s heard across the industry is that of cost. “Too expensive” or “untenable pricing scale” are things we have been hearing from colleagues at conferences and on forums for years. Years! Yet we’re still stuck with this extremely frustrating pricing model that disincentivizes people from using the very tool they purchased. What do I mean? Let’s dive in.

Gravwell in the ICS Village and announcing Nozomi Integration

Jun 7, 2018 6:11:20 PM / by Corey Thuen posted in OT Analytics, Integrations

0 Comments

We're excited to join with Nozomi Networks in announcing our integration partnership which was piloted in the ICS Village at the RSA Sandbox in San Francisco earlier this year. Attendees at RSA were also able to see the first glimpse of the newly unveiled ICS Village. For those unfamiliar with conference villages, the idea is to create a hands-on learning environment for security professionals to learn, hack, or break equipment and software that they may not experience on a day-to-day basis. The Gravwell founders have a long history in the ICS space and we believe in the village mission as we think that ICS/SCADA (more so than most industries) could benefit from some disruption and fresh ideas. The ICS Village can be found at many events this year including DEFCON and EnergySec (full event schedule can be found at https://www.icsvillage.com/events).

It’s Thanksgiving Weekend in America and that means most people have acknowledged the blessings in their lives and are gearing up for something America does better than anyone: consumerism. I had a bit of down time and thought I’d do something else America is good at: Freedom Fighting.

Discovering truth through lies on the internet - FCC comments analyzed

Oct 2, 2017 11:30:00 AM / by Corey Thuen posted in Case study, DevOps Analytics

5 Comments

For this post, the Gravwell analytics team ingested all 22 million+ comments submitted to the FCC over the net neutrality issue. Using Gravwell we were able to rapidly conduct a variety of analysis against the data to pull out some pretty interesting findings. We scraped the entirety of the FCC comments over the course of a night and ingested them into Gravwell afterward. It took about an hour of poking around to get a handle on what the data was and the following research was conducted over about a 12 hour period. So we went from zero knowledge to interesting insights in half a day. We’re kinda nerding out about it.
