Security Intelligence

What is the Security Intelligence big data use case?

The growing number of high-tech crimes - cyber-based terrorism, espionage, computer intrusions, and major cyber fraud - poses a real threat to every individual and organization. To meet the security challenge, businesses need to augment and enhance cyber security and intelligence analysis platforms with big data technologies to process and analyze new data types (e.g. social media, emails, sensors, Telco) and sources of under-leveraged data. Analyzing data in-motion and at rest can help find new associations or uncover patterns and facts to significantly improve intelligence, security and law enforcement insight.
