Logicalis US to CIOs, CISOs: How to Transform Internet Security with Big Data

Solution Provider Identifies Three Steps Required to Leverage Big Data and Secure DNS for Stronger Internet Security   

NEW YORK, February 7, 2017 – Most IT professionals are familiar with Volume, Velocity and Variety as they apply to Big Data, but how about applying them to internet security? That’s the approach that the enterprise security experts at Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), are discussing with clients who are increasingly concerned about advanced threats and malware attacking their corporate networks. To assist IT professionals tasked with enterprise security at their organizations, security experts at Logicalis US have created an infographic outlining the benefits of Transforming Internet Security with Big Data.

“A smart and direct approach to enterprise security, like Cisco Umbrella, leverages the internet’s infrastructure to block malicious destinations before a connection is ever established. By delivering security from the cloud, not only can you save money, but you can also achieve more effective security,” says Ron Temske, Vice President of Security Solutions, Logicalis US. “Umbrella learns from internet activity to automatically identify attacker infrastructure staged for current and emergent threats. It captures and understands the relationships between malware, domains, IPs, and networks across the internet.”

Three Steps Required to Leverage Big Data for Internet Security

  1. Discover: Gather the Big Data necessary to understand what the threat environment looks like. Cisco Umbrella Intelligence, for example, receives 88 billion requests from 65 million active users each day. This is used to assess internet threat pathways including IP addresses, domain names, URLs, DNS and others.
  2. Identify: Using data mining techniques, review the threats to build, tune and train classifiers that can more easily discern active threats from non-threats. The best solutions employ a combination of technology and a team of data scientists to detect and predict threat behaviors.
  3. Enforce: Once discovered and identified, threat policies can be confidently enacted that will protect enterprise resources from attacks from millions of malicious destinations while simultaneously resolving DNS requests.
