Big Data and advanced analysis techniques are driving major change in enterprise threat management. Traditional security approaches that are not designed for the cloud and mobile or that rely on malware samples or signatures are falling behind when faced with polymorphic malware and advanced threats. In his Interop presentation, Dan Hubbard will demonstrate how Big Data can uncover threat intelligence “needles in the haystack” and be used to implement predictive security measures. He will explain and demonstrate:
-- How data, traffic and telemetry analysis when combined with visualization can extract security intelligence about zero day threats
-- How without copies, samples or details, targeted attacks can be contained and addressed
-- The role of the Cloud in implementing this predictive approach to security
