Big data has brought the ability to analyze large, complex, multisource data sets to many organizations that previously relied more on past experience and gut feelings to drive critical decisions. Particularly in the security realm, organizations are looking to big data to drive better visibility into events, actions, intrusions and behaviors than previously possible. Big data enables organizations to be more proactive in responding to threats, as well as more readily able as an organization to evolve and react to new threats to data assets or connected devices and applications.
Effective security in an organization is about effective layers in the security environment. These layers commonly include protections like patches, firewalls and VPNs, alerts through monitoring systems, and educating teams to avoid activities that are high-risk and unnecessary for the company to conduct business. Big data enables organizations to simultaneously monitor more data points, and better detail about activities to pinpoint unexpected patterns, as well as investigate events in more detail to prevent them from occurring in the future.
