Managing Big Data and navigating today’s threat environment is challenging. The rapid consumerization of IT has escalated numerous challenges. The average end user accesses myriad websites and employs a growing number of operating systems and apps daily utilizing a variety of mobile and desktop devices. This translates to an overwhelming and ever-increasing volume, velocity, and variety of data generated, shared, and propagated.
The threat landscape has evolved simultaneously, with the number of threats increasing by orders of magnitude in short periods. This evolving threat landscape, the number of sophisticated tools and computing power that cybercriminals now have at their disposal and the proliferation of Big Data mean software security companies are wrestling with challenges on an unprecedented scale. Protecting computer users from the onslaught of cyber threats is no easy task. If threat detection methodologies are weak, the result is inadequate.
