Big Data? Is There Any Bigger Data Than Your Security Data?

Posted November 22, 2011    Morey Haber

The idea of “big data” has technology vendors and customers alike scrambling to come up with ways to manage the limitless amounts of data being generated by apps, API’s, databases, web services, etc.

For organizations with aggressive security and compliance requirements, the security data driving today’s modern threat and risk intelligence (assessments, compliance reports, attack and mitigation data, etc.) is ‘big data’ in itself. In fact, it might be the biggest data in your organization, with regards to its value and impact to operations.

It is one thing to collect this data (no small feat, actually), but the real challenge is in making sense of all of this valuable information in an actionable format.

How can you get beyond simply managing this data and actually using it to make informed decisions about how to best protect your business? We’re glad you asked. Retina Insight is a comprehensive security data warehouse which our customers use to store and report on threat and risk data, which helps them satisfy both internal and external compliance requirements more accurately and efficiently. In short, we help put your security in context.

Want to learn more? Turn off email, put your phone on DND and check out the video below. Morey and Robert, our eEye product experts, will show you how powerful this capability is and why it should be part of every vulnerability management deployment.
