Cyberattacks are on the rise, as adversarial states and state-sponsored actors pivot quickly to take advantage of current events, including the disruptions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Cybersecurity is a significant problem for government agencies —a problem tailor made for big data.
Bad actors are leveraging an ever-expanding range of cyber exploits, with an emphasis on Advanced Persistent Threats. In these cases, an attack can unfold in mere minutes and once in the system, bad actors can live off the land for months or years, quietly exfiltrating vast tracts of sensitive information.
Heterogeneous infrastructures that include both legacy and cloud deployments put the government at risk, with enormous volumes of data potentially exposed in both on-premise and modernized frameworks. Existing point solutions generate too many alerts, and there are simply not enough trained cybersecurity analysts available to investigate them all. Security Information Events Management (SIEM) applications typically cannot support the needed speed and scalability; nor are they able to effectively monitor the growing number of data generators at the edge—the rising tide of IoT.
Government agencies require a solution that empowers agencies to triage in real-time, with enterprise-ready security and governance built-in. They need an approach to cyber that makes data open and readily shareable across teams and across the hybrid multi-platform architecture.
