Red Sift is a Kx Technology Fund partner that provides a data analysis platform that is purpose-built for the challenges of cybersecurity. By leveraging the elegance of kdb+ and the power of Rust to create data applications, Red Sift can process data at the rate of tens of GB/second on consumer grade hardware. Read the full blog on Red Sift’s site to find out how they are combining the power of kdb+ and Rust to power its cybersecurity platform.

At Red Sift, we use our platform to power next-generation data applications for cybersecurity. At a high level, our platform is one of those trendy serverless compute environments except ours allows you to get real work done. Red Sift lets us pipe data around, transform/augment it and finally aggregate it to find insight that helps keep organisations and individuals safe. All of these features come with the required scaffolding to build real-world cloud SaaS applications. One of the coolest features of the platform is the ability to integrate different technology components into a single application with no glue code. Using this capability, we recently added kdb+ to our core platform as we are building a new cybersecurity product that relies heavily on processing time series data…
