Where is my traffic going? And other tough questions of hybrid network monitoring

Modern application architectures have evolved networking beyond physical connections. IP addresses are no longer sufficient descriptors of components like virtual machines, containers, and cloud services. Effectively managing complex, distributed environments requires an understanding of how these components interact, which cannot be obtained with traditional network monitoring tools. more

Achieving a High Level of Network Inspection with VPC Traffic Mirroring and Suricata

COVID has hit everyone and affected people in their own way.

Knowledge vs. Faith: How to Use Observable Data to Make Better Defence Decisions

Over the past years we increasingly relied on someone’s else judgement and opinion of what is bad or good on the Internet. And whilst very often the things changed the scores may not, leading to false positives or complicated and obscure risk-score structures. Also, to form an opinion, one need to observe the behaviour for some time to cast judgement. What can we do in the meantime? Knowledge abo… more

API Security powered by Deep Learning

Spherical Defense is working on applying research from Cambridge University on representation learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP) to web application / API security. We learn the baseline in an unsupervised manner of normal JSON request headers and payloads, and can detect anomalies. We learn continuously as the application changes and reduce false positives. We can 1) detect anomalies … more
