Leading analyst firm publishes report on information security analytics tools
Milford, Mass - May 21, 2013 - A new report examining the supply side of big data security analytics has been published by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), a leading IT research, analysis, and strategy firm. The report defines the market for big data security analytics and gauges existing solutions that support the collection of information security-related data for the purposes of conducting analysis, governance, risk, and compliance activities.

"Security analytics is rapidly becoming a big data application for one simple reason," said Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst at ESG and author of the report. "Organizations are collecting, processing, storing, and analyzing more and more data to address the insidious threat landscape and keep up with changes to their IT infrastructures."

Due to the rapidly changing nature of this emerging market, ESG is making its Market Landscape Report, The Evolution of Big Data Security Analytics Technology, available on a complimentary basis for a limited time.

The report describes the continuum from real-time to asymmetrical big data security analytics. Real-time big data security analytics solutions are evolutionary iterations of existing SIEM, log management, network flow analysis, and IP packet capture tools, although they distinguish themselves from legacy SIEM platforms by their scalability, analytics intelligence, and performance characteristics. Asymmetric big data security analytics solutions provide high-performance platforms for the analysis of massive volumes of structured and unstructured data. They are designed with the assumption that analysts may have no idea what they are looking for, where to start, or how to proceed.

"Big data security analytics solutions tend to lean toward one end of the continuum or the other, although individual solutions may offer some features and functionality in both areas", Oltsik said.

Vendors covered in the ESG Market Landscape Report include: 21CT, Click Security, Cloudera, Cognitive Security, Crowdstrike, Dell SecureWorks, Endgame Technologies, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Lancope, LexisNexis, LogRythm, McAfee, Narus, PacketLoop, Palantir, RedLambda, RSA Security, SAIC, Solera Networks, Splunk, SumoLogic, and Zettaset.
