Kx Technologies & BroadBridge Sign Strategic Partnership

London, UK (31 July 2018) –  Kx, a division of First Derivatives, today announced that its Kx technology has been selected by BroadBridge Networks to power its cybersecurity platform. Under the partnership, BroadBridge Networks can access the Kx technology stack to provide customers streaming analytics on network telemetry at previously unachievable scale and cost.

BroadBridge Networks, based in Silicon Valley, provides a security platform which analyzes network telemetry, leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide human-centric data visualizations and security policy automation. Using Kx technology, BroadBridge can store and analyze network telemetry (i.e., flows, packets, and logs) at network speed, allowing security and IT personnel to have full visibility, analyze all traffic, and leverage security policy automation in a single affordable and scalable platform. 

“At BroadBridge, we saw the need for a more mature, easily accessible, and streamlined analytics platform in the cybersecurity market, which is precisely why we have chosen to partner with Kx,” said Kelvin R Franklin, CEO, BroadBridge Networks. “Kx technology is the perfect fit for our forward-thinking solution because it is scalable, simple and fast.”

Kx technology is optimized to analyze time-series data in real time, and is built upon kdb+, the world’s fastest time series database. The combination of Kx’s technology and BroadBridge Networks’ cybersecurity expertise provides a unique advantage by significantly increasing the speed and performance of data analysis and the ability to provide real time actionable recommendations and automation.

“We are delighted that BroadBridge Networks has chosen Kx to power its disruptive network security platform,” said Brian Conlon, CEO, Kx. “This agreement further demonstrates how Kx technology continues to be a key enabler of disruption across many industries.”

BroadBridge Networks’ ground-breaking cybersecurity platform performs real-time network analytics at scale, providing transparent artificial intelligence rendered as human-friendly data visualizations, security policy recommendations, and automated policy orchestration. Running continuously at line speed, organizations can now rest easy knowing that their deployed security policies reflect the dynamic nature of their business, escaping the debilitating syndrome of having policies that are out of date the moment they are implemented. BroadBridge Networks is headquartered in Fremont, Calif. For more information, visit http://www.broadbridgenetworks.com.
