RSA sees 'big data' as key to corporate security (podcast)
RSA Vice President Brian Fitzgerald discusses why analyzing a company's stores of data can help spot abnormalities that could identify an ongoing attack.
Big data is one the the big themes at this week's annual RSA security conference in San Francisco.
That's because analyzing a company's stores of data is another step in improving information security, RSA Vice President Brian Fitzgerald said.
"Classic security defenses are no longer that effective in a world where data centers no longer have a fixed perimeter. They're connected to suppliers and to customers. Information is flowing between partners on a massive scale," he said in an audio podcast (scroll down to listen).
Analyzing a company's data allows you to "look at behavior and understand what's happening in a data center, look for unusual behavior, and then make sure that that can be defended against," he said.
