Under the Surface of Optum's Security Big Data Lake

Optum’s Cyber Defense organization utilizes Elastic within its Security Big Data Lake to search and pivot between cyber threats. The Hadoop and Elastic architecture of the data lake allows correlation and enrichment of logs prior to Elastic ingestion, accelerating investigation timelines. The SBDL can replace and improve on many cyber products offered by third parties at significantly lower cost and risk.
