Zettaset is looking to address security concerns for big data deployments with its Security Data Warehouse platform that allows enterprises to analyse and simulate possible security incidents across a range of platforms and devices.
The Hadoop-based platform is designed for large-scale big data deployments. The system collects information across multiple devices and databases, and aligns the data with logs and analytical tools to recreate past events or test possible future incidents.
"The missing component within the risk management space is really the long-term use of the data for a higher degree of intelligence," Tom Masucci, Zettaset vice president of business development and sales, told V3.
"That type of data mining and intelligence gathering is impossible in the database technologies that traditional vendors are deploying."
Masucci explained that the use of analytical tools can play a vital role in thwarting attacks or detecting malware lying dormant within systems.
Having a full overview of past events and being able to piece together logs allows administrators to root out infections or address possible avenues of attack, he said.
Zettaset also believes that the use of the Hadoop platform helps to keep security data warehouses flexible for various deployment options.
"The user can go out, grab off-the-shelf hardware and install our software package on top of it," said Zettaset chief executive Brian Christian. "Or if they are a cloud based company, they can download our cloud solution."
