Black Hat: Recap & Takeaways

Corvil took Las Vegas by storm this year. We made a splash at Black Hat with our virtual security expert, exciting partnership with Endgame, industry dinner and interactive raffle.

We can’t believe Black Hat 2017 is already in our rear view mirror!

As the dust settles on our time in Las Vegas, we’re thrilled to report a successful and productive (and fun!) experience at the industry’s top security conference.


We went all out at Black Hat – we had extensive demos so attendees could walk through all our security solutions and capabilities, and meet our virtual security expert Cara. We also made sure that guests were in for a sweet treat! Attendees who stopped by our booth enjoyed an edible illustration of Corvil’s needle-in-the-haystack technology – they detected the “anomalous” Corvil-branded m&m among a sea of orange m&ms to be entered into our raffle. We co-hosted a lovely dinner with the Endgame team for a night of lively discussion around industry developments and how our partnership plays into broader trends.

Beyond telling the Corvil story, it was useful to survey the security landscape and see firsthand how Corvil fits into the bigger picture. From my experience on the ground at Black Hat, it’s apparent that while the security market is absolutely crowded, the network traffic forensics and analytics space is far less oversubscribed. Security teams are increasingly looking for ways to go beyond log and flow data to tap into network traffic for their Security Ops.

This is where we come in. It was validating to be able to tell attendees about how Corvil transforms network data into streaming cyber intelligence, providing machine-time visibility and forensics for broader threat detection and faster response times. By leveraging our network expertise and applying it to cybersecurity, Corvil fills a critical industry gap; and by enabling user-centric views of network traffic, we continue to meet security teams’ needs.

Thanks to all who stopped by Corvil’s booth to meet our team and learn about how Corvil is securing the most at-risk players across industries. We look forward to seeing you at Black Hat next year!
