First Ponemon Study On Big Data Analytics In Cyber Defense Is A National Wake Up Call

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  2013 RSA Security Conference – A groundbreaking study from a top cybersecurity analyst firm, Big Data Analytics in Cyber Defense, confirms that big data analytics offer a powerful arsenal for cyber security, but adoption is alarmingly slow. The report, released today by Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC), the analytic data solutions company, and the Ponemon Institute, contains several key findings:

    • Cyber-attacks are getting worse but only 20 percent say their organizations are more effective at stopping them. The greatest areas of cyber security risk are caused by mobility, lack of visibility and multiple global interconnected network systems.
    • Fifty-six percent are aware of the technologies that provide big data analytics and 61 percent say they will solve pressing security issues, but only 35 percent have them. The 61 percent say big data analytics is in their future.
    • Less than half of organizations are vigilant in preventing (42 percent) anomalous and potentially malicious traffic from entering networks or detecting such traffic (49 percent) in their networks.
    • Big data analytics with security technologies ensure a stronger cyber defense. Eighty-two percent would like big data analytics combined with anti-virus/anti-malware; 80 percent say anti-DoS/DDoS would make their organizations more secure.

"While data growth and complexity are explosive factors in cyber defense, new big data tools and data management techniques are emerging that can efficiently handle the volume and complexity of IP network data," said Dr. Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute, a research "think tank" dedicated to advancing privacy and data protection practices. "These new database analytic tools can bring more power and precision to an enterprise cyber defense strategy, and will help organizations rise to meet the demands of complex and large-scale analytic and data environments."
