Did you know that KSQLDB can also be used to query Network & Security Data in real-time and using simple SQL like queries. ksqlDB is evolving fast, there are a lot more features being rolled out every month, including some of the lesser known functions that can be very useful in this space. In this session, let’s do a live demo on what ksqlDB is and further build a use case actioning network data in real-time!
