Security and #MachineLearning | @CloudExpo #ML #AI #DL #CyberSecurity

Machine Learning May Be the Solution to Enterprise Security Woes By Karl Zimmerman For large enterprise organizations, it can be next-to-impossible to identify attacks and act to mitigate them in good time. That's one of the reasons executives often discover security breaches when an external researcher - or worse, a journalist - gets in touch to ask why hundreds of millions of logins for their company's services are freely available on hacker forums. The huge volume of incoming connections, the heterogeneity of services, and the desire to avoid false positives leave enterprise security teams in a difficult spot. Finding potential security breaches is like finding a tiny needle in a very large haystack - monitoring millions of connections over thousands of servers is not something that can be managed by a team of humans. Enterprise security is often preventative: we ... (more)

Why Security Teams Love Intelligent Deception | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Security #Analytics

Top 5 Reasons Why Security Teams Love Intelligent Deception Cyberattacks are relentless. The pace of attacks shows no sign of slowing, and organizations understand that 100 percent prevention of attacks is not possible. Traditional prevention and detection techniques are falling short, and security professionals are scrambling for new paradigms that can more effectively detect attacks and mitigate the growing levels of damage. In this climate of confusion, deception-based solutions offer a viable and proven way to stop attackers in their tracks. Why? Because instead of sitting back and waiting to be the victim, detection technologies let organizations be proactive and take the attack to the attacker. We've compiled a list of top five reasons why more security teams are opting for deception: 1. Malware Agnostic Today's cyber defenses are centered around prevention. Yet ... (more)

Should Data Centers Think? | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Agile #Analytics #DataCenter

As cloud computing becomes the information technology mainstream, data center technology is accelerating at a breakneck speed. Concepts like software define infrastructure, data center analytics and Nonvolatile Memory Express (NVMe) over Fabrics are changing the very nature of data center management.  According to industry research firm IDC, organizations will spend an additional $142.8 billion oninfrastructure for both public and private cloud environments in the next three years (2016-2018) to boost efficiency and business agility. To support this rapid evolving space, Intel announced a “Cloud for All” initiative last year in order to help businesses get the most out of their cloud infrastructure. Specific goals for this initiative include: Investing in the ecosystem to accelerate enterprise-ready, easy-to-deploy software defined infrastructure (SDI) solutions; Op... (more)
