Damballa and Bit9 + Carbon Black Collaborate to Deliver Better Security with More Context

Damballa and Bit9 + Carbon Black Collaborate to Deliver Better Security with More Context

  In looking at the solutions available for threat protection (and detection), there are quite a few options out there. Some, like Damballa Failsafe, are network-based, vigilantly watching packets across the network and looking for indications of undesirable activities/behaviors and content.  Others are host-based, like Bit9 + Carbon Black, using an agent on the endpoint, to persistently defend the endpoint as a beachhead against undesired, malicious processes trying to execute. Each has its use cases and strong points, but together they provide a significantly broader perspective and richer context for driving response. While sitting on the network and inspecting packets allows for ...

Thoughts on Splunk .conf 2014

Thoughts on Splunk .conf 2014

This week, Las Vegas hosted some 3500 people at the MGM Grand to mark Splunk .conf14, the annual user gathering for Splunk customers, referred to as “Splunkers”. For those of you not in the tech industry, spelunking, or the act of exploring caves, may come to mind. The theme of the conference was not cave exploration, but data exploration; however, the analogy of cave exploration actually aligns very well. “Splunkers” are diving into their data, delving deep into places that many have never explored before. Each of them finding new and cool ways to use the data that they have ...

Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

It’s sometimes difficult to differentiate between hype and reality when it comes to topics such as cloud, ITaaS, SDN, DevOps, hybrid this and hybrid that. But there are a few certainties in the IT universe and one of them is that IT doesn’t function if all of the pieces can’t talk to one another, and that means the network needs to be rock solid. Some of that is under the control of enterprise IT teams as internal network infrastructure, but some of it isn’t, such as WAN or Internet. Because connectivity is so essential, no one questions the need for ...

Earth_Lever-300x190

“Give me a place to stand, and with a lever I will move the whole world.” –Archimedes In the wake of last week’s disclosure of an attack against Bit9, Jeremiah Grossman seems positively prescient. His New Year’s prediction about security’s immediate future was that attacks against security measures would increase. And why not? If defense...

Knowledge_Delivery

Albert Einstein once said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” And I think that the wonderful world of Knowledge Delivery (aka Data Visualization, Reporting, etc.) needs to think...

Edward de Bono, a noted expert on creative thinking, once said: The purpose of science is not to analyze or describe but to make useful models of the world. A model is useful if it allows us to get use out of it. Business Analytics is very similar to this concept of science, and specifically,...

magnifying-glass-300x190

I am a big fan of data discovery solutions. They enable a wider group of users to enjoy the benefits of business insights and break away from the platform driven traditional solutions that can be difficult to use, extremely expensive and limited to only a few users within an organization. At MicroStrategy World last week...

data-explosion_300x190

In my last post, I noted that I expect intelligence and the coordination and integration of defense technologies to be key drivers of the IT security market in 2013.  This is not just about some major vendors who have acknowledged their need for a wake-up call on these fronts. These are larger trends that are...

Data_Management

When Aesop created the fable about the shepherd boy who cried wolf, the message was clear: “How liars are not rewarded: even if they tell the truth, no one believes them” If analysts like myself and others as well as the mainstream press (ie Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Economist ) continue to shout about Big Data...

Binoculars-in-grass_300x190

I’ve happily managed largely to avoid getting entangled in the New Year’s ritual of security predictions, since these can, frankly, be fairly boring. But for those who expect such, here you go: Attackers will continue to succeed. Determined adversaries will become even more so. Moving one set of playing pieces does not alter the objectives...

Juniper_Networks

Juniper’s SDN strategy is well thought out and is not dissimilar to Cisco’s approach in that they are looking to make their network equipment less rigid and more flexible and adaptable. Oh and I do look forward to hearing more about the plans for “centralizing the appropriate aspects of the management, services and control software...

I have always loved the song “88 Lines about 44 Women” by the Nails.  And based on some recent success with a blogging topic relating to the songs of the 80s, I thought that I would continue that theme with “100 Lines about 25 Business Intelligence Topics”. Think of this list, or series of lists,...
