There are dozens of types of cybersecurity devices with dozens of vendors in each category.  Effective cybersecurity requires a diverse set of data, typically crossing both vendor and device-type boundaries.  The Polyglot challenge is to develop a means of translating data from this highly heterogeneous mix into a single representation so that security management tools can either request or automatically ingest information that is consistently formatted though derived from multiple, heterogeneous, sources.

Whether an organization is looking to understand if they are under attack, or if a ransomware campaign is spreading, they need to ingest information that is being provided by a number of different vendors and technologies.  While the format and organization of telemetry from different providers will vary, the core elements are the same.  An endpoint security product will send alerts and messages with an address, a machine type, a timestamp, an alert priority, a related user, etc, but every vendor will organize and present this information differently.  It mimics a spoken or written language, where the structure or object/action/description is common.  The Polyglot project will create a translator, pulling out the common and most important elements of security device telemetry data to support a data abstraction layer that can be used to generate platform-agnostic outbound interfaces for reporting and alerting, and inbound interfaces for configuration and response activities.

Almanna Cyber is a venture fund and start-up accelerator.  The developing Almanna cohort of companies will benefit from a common ontology, and the creation of a company to create a product-strength version of Polyglot is an attractive investment opportunity.

NuHarbor Security manages cybersecurity for hundreds of organizations, many of them in the public sector, who rely on a heterogeneous and growing set of underlying security technologies.  As a result, NuHarbor analysts and engineers are very familiar with the vagaries of these tools and the complexities that they introduce for users.  Polyglot will provide a unifying framework for monitoring and response tooling in the hands of these experts.
