Have you ever heard of Big Data Analytics in conjunction with Malware Threats prevention? If not, this is the right introduction to Security Data Science, the emerging topic of IT Security, implemented with Splunk, the most prominent platform for Predictive Security!
As the complexity of organizations increases, new challenges arise when it comes to preventing security threats.
There is an undiscussed need for new proactive approaches in detecting potential security threats, to complement the traditional static analysis in fact, threat signals might be intercepted by simply listening to network traffic, putting in place Introusion Detection Systems, stateful inspection, etc, by implementing appropriate hardware and software solutions.
However, in order to gain a complete and wider picture about whats going on, we need a different holistic mindset, achieved by leveraging on heterogeneous sources of information: thats what Big Data solutions, such as Splunk, are meant for.
