MantisNet is a proud sponsor and participant at the upcoming FloCon 2019 conference in New Orleans, January 7-10, 2019.
We were excited to be accepted as a speaker and sponsor for the annual Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University’s event. The theme for FloCon 2019 is ‘Using Data to Defend’ and the forum to “explore large-scale, next-generation data analytics in support of security operations” fits squarely within the core mission and vision of MantisNet.

Our VP of Engineering, Michael Reed, will be speaking on Thursday, January 10 on Dynamically Repurposed and Programmable Network Monitoring. If you’re looking to better understand the broad range of new types of SDN-based, real-time network intelligence you can obtain from physical or virtual networks to build streaming analytic pipelines, then attend this session. High-speed, high port count network visibility and monitoring metadata for NetOps and SecOps applications and real-time decisioning are now available. You can find a full agenda of sessions and speakers here.

Specifically, Michael’s session will cover:

“Effective NetOp and SecOp system architectures require collecting and analyzing network traffic data in real-time. With the advent of programmable switching fabrics like the Barefoot Networks Tofino ASIC, alongside packet processing Domain Specific Languages (DSL) like P4, instrumenting networks deeply in real-time is doable. We have developed a YANG model-driven system for network monitoring and visibility, based on a commodity switch, that harnesses the power of a fully programmable dataplane to filter, aggregate, load-balance, and shape packet frames while simultaneously generating in-band and out-of-band telemetry natively at 100G speeds. These components combined together can now be leveraged to develop powerful streaming analytic pipelines implemented using on-premise or cloud-based in-memory computing architectures. Scalable collection, analysis, and processing of high-speed, high port count networks using commodity, dynamically repurposed and programmed switches and servers is now achievable.”

Additionally, MantisNet will have a table at the event and will be demonstrating MantisNet solutions for cybersecurity, fraud intelligence, traffic management, and high-speed/complex network monitoring as well answering any questions you may have.

There is still time to register for FloCon. We look forward to meeting you there!

See you in New Orleans!
