BroadBridge Networks Selects Kx to Power its Cybersecurity Platform
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.”

Story BroadBridge Networks Origin
HUMAN error effectively allows 95% of successful security breaches to occur. Misconfigured, missing, and-out of-date infrastructure policy, insufficiently trained staff, and limited security budgets all conspire to perpetuate this reality.
Today’s security tools simply cannot keep pace with the explosive data volumes moving across the increasingly dynamic on-prem, private and public cloud infrastructures, contributing to an ever-expanding attack surface.
Having years of experience in networking, security, big data, and security analytics, BroadBridge Networks’ founders have discovered how to leverage Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation to augment an organization’s security posture and speed the mitigation of exposed security gaps.
BroadBridge combines artificial intelligence and data science with advanced visualization techniques to present AI output in a way non-data scientists across organizational boundaries can understand, interpret, and use, to gain new insights into their security posture and apply automated countermeasures.
With continuous observation, measurement, analysis, and automation at work, the BroadBridge solution allows organizations to execute and maintain effective security policies that are continuously updated, refined, and adjusted. The end result is a dynamic and dramatically improved security posture with lower IT, security, and operational costs.
