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 what’s going on, we need a different “holistic” mindset, achieved by leveraging on heterogeneous sources of information: that’s what Big Data solutions, such as Splunk, are meant for.
