Company We Take You From Setup to 1st Insights in 3 Hours


Get insights, not headaches, from the data deluge

Imagine having the intelligence to instantly perceive the changing state of your business from the enormous stream of data flying by at every moment:

  • Social network chatter
  • Live TV and radio mentions
  • News outlets, forums and blogs
  • Dark Web and cyber threats
  • Website and Ad clickstreams
  • Email messages
  • Sales and CRM activity
  • Customer support interactions
  • Application log files
  • IT and firewall data
  • And any other streaming data...

The familiar term “big data” doesn’t fully express the volume, variety, and velocity of the information flows you have to monitor today. Instead we call this “stream data” because it’s data-in-motion – big data that is constantly changing.

Explore past, present and future

Bottlenose is on a mission to make sure your business sees its past, present and future in the new world of rapidly streaming data.

Bottlenose helps you:

  • Spot oncoming risks and threats while there’s still time to prevent them.
  • Foresee emerging opportunities while there’s still time to seize them.
  • Discover essential business intelligence more easily, quickly and accurately.

Do what old tools can’t

Existing big data tools can’t quickly deliver the insights you need from all the streaming data sources you need to analyze. They cannot handle data’s increasing velocity, volume and variety.

The Bottlenose vision is to securely:

  • Deliver intelligence across internal and external stream data sources.
  • Make sense of unstructured and structured data for new, deeper insights.
  • Help you automatically detect trends, anomalies, threats and opportunities.
  • Do it all in real time.

Gain more time to innovate

With Bottlenose, your researchers, strategists, security teams, marketers, analysts and other pros can spend their time moving your organization forward instead of drowning in data.

You will make smarter business decisions, respond faster,and innovate better when Bottlenose gives you answers to complex questions such as:

  • How is trading activity in our stock tied to sentiment around our brand?
  • Can you alert us when hackers are talking about us and activity hits our firewall?
  • Can we pick up potential legal threats and competitor moves in time to mitigate them?

Set it up easily, learn it quickly

  • Most clients go from setup to first insights in three hours, without engineering assistance.
  • Users quickly master our intuitive point-and-click browser-based discovery, reporting and visualization tool.

Leading businesses use Bottlenose

Our vision is reality. Some of the best companies in the world now have the intelligence to navigate threats & opportunities even as stream data grows and changes faster than ever.
