With the cloud changing the way modernizations of big data is done, service providers and security organizations have to work harder to ensure security of Big Data to their consumers. The reason for increased security breaches is because the traditional security technologies have no capacity required to detect and protect against such attacks. In view of this rising issue, let's look at what companies in Silicon Valley are doing to make big data more secure.
IBM has launched a security intelligence with Big Data platform to ensure threats and risk are detected. IBM's platform can help business address the ATPs, fraud and insider threats. IBM is helping its clients to answer questions that could never have been answered before. For instance, the new security intelligence with Big Data platform helps clients analyze emails, transactions, social media data, documents and full packet data over years of activity. With these kind of analytic capabilities, organizations can find malicious activities hidden in the big masses of data.
HP makes use of Knowledge management apps and Autonomy enterprise search and integrate them with Security-event and information management (SIEM) to analyze the massive data. According to Varun Kohli, the director of product market and enterprise security products, it is possible to reveal rogue employee's behavior related to the data leaks of information, and learn in advance plots against the organization by cyber criminals. HP believes autonomy gives meaning to the data to ensure analyst are able to find out what people are saying, both negative and positive.
