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.

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.
