Cloud-native security data fabric DataBee launches

SDxCentral reports that Comcast has rolled out its new cloud-native security data fabric, DataBee. The platform was originally developed and deployed three years ago for internal use at Comcast, operating on Snowflakes Data Cloud as well as other data lakes. It was so successful at improving speed, time to detection, efficiency enabling our threat hunters to hunt for bad actors much more quickly, helping us to produce compliance reports much faster, said Comcast Technology Solutions Vice President and General Manager Nicole Bucala. DataBee collects security data from various sources to transform them into one unified fabric, allowing for easier monitoring, analysis and threat reporting. It offers various use cases such as advanced threat detection; security information and event management decoupling; threat hunting; behavioral analysis; and continuous controls assurance. Comcast also internally uses DataBee for endpoint detection and response control assurance and VPN mismatch and zero-trust deployment assessment. What Snowflake is solving here is the ability to scale up to multiple petabytes in a way that is both cost-effective and doesn't place a tremendous operational burden on the security team, said Omer Singer, Snowflakes head of cybersecurity strategy.
