Alex Rivlin
Senior Manager, FireEye labs, FireEye

Alex Rivlin leads the team responsible for dynamic threat intelligence at FireEye, which includes a crowdsourced malware exchange across FireEye customers and a malware analytics platform supporting FireEye’s research. For two decades, Alex developed novel analytical capabilities for high-tech companies in projects such as semiconductor failure analysis, supply chain optimization, pricing, and cybersecurity. Previously, Alex worked at Altera (currently part of Intel), where he was hired to develop analytical platform for semiconductor test. His very first project earned a US patent for optimization of bulk loading of data to RDBMS. He later joined supply chain optimization project, where he was responsible for operational analytics. One of his developments allowed real-time reallocation of materials, a feature not available in any commercial packages. Alex also spent time at Flextronics, where he was in charge of project management for implementation of global procurement solution and master data management.

Along the way, they explore some of the challenges typical for a company implementing Hadoop. Read more.
