I’ve been thinking about data a lot recently. Nothing unusual there - it’s my job after all, and given the way data is growing at the moment, the term ‘big data’ is a regular on the daily buzzword bingo card. What’s really been making me think however, is not so much the quantities of data, but where it all is and how we can access it. 

The volumes of data being stored in online media sites such as YouTube or Vimeo, the blogs, content and status updates across social networks, the events and transactional traffic being generated by advertisers and devices are all creating an online pool that is dwarfing the overall volumes being stored inside corporate data centres. 

Such resources present a rich seam, which is increasingly available to be mined, as examples such as Amazon providing access to “Open datasets” via EC2 illustrate. Add to this the vast pools of governmental data - across transport and other public services - being opened up...

Information is – slowly – moving outside the database. And it’s everywhere. Businesses want to get their hands on all the data that really matters, wherever it resides, because that is the strategy that will ensure they stay ahead of the game.

More and more, they are seeing both structured and unstructured data as their life blood, wherever, and in whatever format, that data presents itself. No matter whether it is ‘System centric’ (ie, it’s in the database) or ‘Information centric’ (it’s ‘out there’ somewhere), it has vast potential value, if it is harnessed and employed properly. Hence organisations are working to develop and deploy big data alongside their established business intelligence structure: that is where their future success lies.

The business opportunities that will assure their survival, growth and future well-being are locked within the flood of data that swirls around us. If they can relate details from across all of their digital information assets,...

In the era of Big Data – and a future that promises nothing less than even Bigger Data – you need Big Weaponry to defend your organisation, people and systems from modern attacks. What once was considered adequate to shore up your defences and keep you safe just doesn’t cut it anymore.

Look back only a short while ago and what was then regarded as muscular security and robust levels of resistance would now be seen as little more than the equivalent of tissue paper trying to halt a boulder. Times have changed beyond recognition. The threat landscape of today demands a whole new approach to protecting your business.

It’s a reality that Siân John, Directory of Security Strategy, UK/Ireland, Symantec, will be bringing into sharp focus at RSA Conference Europe in Amsterdam this month (29-31 October).

In her session, ‘Using Big Intelligence to Defend against Modern Attacks...

Last week we announced Symantec Data Insight 4.0 to help IT administrators take back control of dark data. Lack of insight into this information is due to the rapid growth of unstructured dark data, which is generally poorly managed and stored. Many data centers literally have petabytes of unstructured information (documents, presentations, spreadsheets and emails) that an organization accumulates over time and is in the dark when it comes to its content, ownership and usage.

With this latest version of Data Insight, Symantec continues to integrate its storage and security offerings, providing organizations a unified approach to data governance. Data Insight 4.0 represents the progress on Symantec’s commitment to integrate solutions, making it easier for organizations to protect and manage their information.

Symantec Data Insight helps organizations improve unstructured data governance through actionable...
