How SevOne Is Live Streaming Grafana Data Sources

SevOne, a 14-year-old company in the network monitoring space, started using Grafana for self-monitoring last year because there weren’t many frontend engineers in the organization at the time. “We fell in love with it,” SevOne Tech Lead Sean Lafferty said during his GrafanaCon talk about how the company live streams Grafana data sources.


Monitor Twistlock with Datadog

Twistlock is a platform for managing security and compliance within various environments, including virtual machines, containers, and serverless functions. Ensuring legal and technical security is just as valuable as preventing outages and errors, which is why Datadog is delighted to announce a new integration with Twistlock.

The simplest prioritization tip money can buy

Every time I get into a serious discussion about prioritization with the teams I coach, there’s a moment where someone does a big exhale (the kind where your cheeks puff out) and says “Let’s face it. We’re trying to do way too much and we’re kidding ourselves if we think we can do it at high quality.” And every time, they’re right.


Entity Extraction for Product Searches

Entity extraction is, in the context of search, the process of figuring out which fields a query should target, as opposed to always hitting all fields. The reason we may want to involve entity extraction in search is to improve precision. For example: how do we tell that, when the user typed in Apple iPhone, the intent was to run company:Apple AND product:iPhone? And not bring back phone stickers in the shape of an apple?


That’s a nice SOAR budget you have there... pity if something were to happen to it

So you took the proactive step to get a budget and purchase a SOAR, congratulations. The funny thing about budgets is that if they turn out not to result in value/benefit they can disappear fast. Now whether you used the simple guide to selecting a SOAR (Pragmatic SOAR Selection) we recently published or some other means, you are now entering a critical phase in your SOAR journey.


Using React Select with Redux Form

At FireHydrant we use Redux Form for all of our forms. It is extremely easy to build complex form logic with all sorts of added bonuses that make using it in our React/Redux front end a no brainer. However, when we started using React Select for our select fields we started running into some issues. You are likely running into some of the same issues we did and so this blog post will help get you off the ground and integrating these two libraries together.


How FireHydrant Creates Data in Rails

At FireHydrant, we built a platform for integrations from the beginning. This has a lot of implications to the way that data gets created and read out of your application however. For example, how does a user differ from an integration reading data? Do you make API tokens on users or create a separate model called Bot? (Hint: you do).


What is User and Entity Behavior Analytics and why does it matter?

A lot could happen within 100 days. One could start a new company, travel around the world or train for a marathon. One hundred days is also around the average time that attackers spend frolicking around compromised networks before being detected. For countries in Europe, Middle East, and Africa the number goes up to 175, or almost half of a year. To make matters worse, the longer a breach remains undetected the more expensive it becomes.
