Enterprise Threats: Big Data and Cyber Security


Building-security-300x243Many people are aware of the fact that Big Data has the potential to significantly enhance business and operational processes. Yet, its scalability also has substantial boons for cyber security, the consequences of which can either make or break the enterprise.
 
Due to the massive quantities and variation of data sources that organizations can process via Big Data, it is now economically feasible to capture, store, and analyze cyber security data for months at a time. Prior to the advent of Big Data technologies, most conventional security appliances could only provide point solutions that filtered data for a single threat such as malware, denial of service, or intrusion prevention – for a matter of minutes.

Thus, they can continue to stream for and deter threats in close to real time and augment that capability with a deeper, profound analysis of more sophisticated threats. If you’ve bet the enterprise on the network and its data, extra security doesn’t hurt.
