Big Data Overwhelms Security Teams

eSecurity Planet | Aug 20, 2014

A major contributing factor in many recent data breaches has been the fact that many IT security teams are simply overwhelmed by the volume of data they’re handling.

Mike Lloyd, CTO of RedSeal Networks, said that kind of data provides IT security teams with a serious challenge. “I don’t meet any security teams these days that say, ‘You know, what I lack is data,'” he said. “In fact, we’re drowning in data. The problem is turning that data into facts you can use.”
