Webinar: Learn How Malwarebytes Uses Redis Enterprise As Their Primary Data Store To Protect Us From Malware and Security Threats

Priya Balakrishnan by Priya Balakrishnan

On Oct. 16, Malwarebytes’ Darren Chinen will join Redis Labs for a webinar titled “Malwarebytes Transforms Vulnerability Telemetry with Redis Enterprise.” Malwarebytes is a security software provider that believes ‘everyone has a fundamental right to malware-free existence’. In order to proactively protect their users from malware intrusion and other types of security vulnerabilities, Malwarebytes use innovative techniques to collect information about malware and threats from around the globe.

But how did Malwarebytes diversify the range of services it provides? One part of the answer lies with Redis Labs. Using Redis Enterprise’s various capabilities, Malwarebytes has revolutionized the ways in which it collects and processes data. As Darren will explain on Tuesday, Malwarebytes explored various different data tools but none were able to handle the load and deliver the speed that Redis Enterprise has been able to provide. They have been able to use Redis Enterprise to harness millions of malware data and produce heat maps of malware in real time, allowing all of us to gain a better understanding of the progression, velocity and attack vectors of malware from around the world.

Here’s an example of what their impressive heat map looks like.

Darren will deep dive into how Redis Enterprise has helped them achieve these powerful visuals that show where each particular piece of malware was generated and who it is affecting.

In addition to making Malwarebytes’ data collection process more efficient, Redis Enterprise has also helped them save on infrastructure costs, quite significantly. Malwarebytes originally used Redis as a cache. But as their usage grew, they subsequently realized that Redis Enterprise can actually function as a persistent data store (Redis Enterprise delivers various persistence options) and because it can extend its in-memory capabilities to Flash with Redis on Flash technology. Darren will also discuss how Redis on Flash has helped them save significant amounts of money on infrastructure costs.

These aren’t the only ways in which Malwarebytes has been utilizing Redis’ technology. Darren will deep dive into how Malwarebytes has also explored different uses for Redis Graph and ReBloom filters. Redis Graph uses sparse matrices to speed up real-world calculations by up to 50 times, while ReBloom — Redis’ Bloom filter — uses a probabilistic data structure to perform intelligent calculations and more efficiently search for specific items within a given data set.

Living in data for almost 20 years, Darren has cut his teeth as a data engineer on traditional data warehouse technologies and has led EDW transition projects. He’s passionate about data and is a hands-on techie. He will be deep diving into how Malwarebytes uses Redis on Flash, Redis Graph, ReBloom and more.
