Whitepaper: Big Security For Big Data

We are children of the information generation. No longer tied to large mainframe computers, we now access information via applications, mobile devices, and laptops to make decisions based on real-time data. It is because information is so pervasive that businesses want to capture this data and analyze it for intelligence.

Data explosion

The multitude of devices, users, and generated traffic all combine to create a proliferation of data that is being created with incredible volume, velocity, and variety. As a result, organizations need a way to protect, utilize, and gain real-time insight from “big data.”

This intelligence is not only valuable to businesses and consumers, but also to hackers. Robust information marketplaces have arisen for hackers to sell credit card information, account usernames, passwords, national secrets (WikiLeaks), as well as intellectual property. How does anyone keep secrets anymore? How does anyone keep secrets protected from hackers?

In the past when the network infrastructure was straightforward and perimeters used to exist, controlling access to data was much simpler. If your secrets rested within the company network, all you had to do to keep the data safe was to make sure you had a strong firewall in place. However, as data became available through the Internet, mobile devices, and the cloud having a firewall was not enough. Companies tried to solve each security problem in a piecemeal manner, tacking on more security devices like patching a hole in the wall. But, because these products did not interoperate, you could not coordinate a defense against hackers.

In order to meet the current security problems faced by organizations, a new paradigm shift needs to occur. Businesses need the ability to secure data, collect it, and aggregate into an intelligent format, so that real-time alerting and reporting can take place. The first step is to establish complete visibility so that your data and who accesses the data can be monitored. Next, you need to understand the context, so that you can focus on the valued assets, which are critical to your business. Finally, utilize the intelligence gathered so that you can harden your attack surface and stop attacks before the data is exfiltrated. So, how do we get started?
