Social Security Company Nexgate's Success Relies on Cassandra

For this meetup we are excited to be joined by two members of the Nexgate team, Rich Sutton, CTO and Harold Nguyen, Senior Data Scientist.

What You'll Learn at this Meetup: 

The accuracy of any security product is directly tied to the breadth of the corpus of data upon which it is built. For Nexgate, this means that the success of our products is inextricably tied to our ability to save everything we've ever scanned forever, but in a way that is still readily accessible. In the days before NoSQL, this was hard. This is how Datastax and Cassandra make it easy


About Rich Sutton:
Rich Sutton is the CTO at Nexgate, where he leads all product development. Rich has been in the security industry for almost 20 years, building everything from desktop software to cloud services to network appliances.

About Harold Nguyen:
Harold Nguyen, Senior Data Scientist at Nexgate, is responsible for the product's classification system, including natural language processing and text-based machine learning algorithms. Prior to his role, Harold was a Data Scientist at Barracuda Networks responsible for web filtering and email spam classification. He received his Ph.D. in experimental particle physics working at the Large Hadron Collider, and has a decade of experience in analysis of large datasets.


Also, a big thank you to RelateIQ for hosting! Hope to see you all there!
