Cybersecurity is a vital component for all enterprises. Not only do you need to protect the systems and data generated through your daily business activities, but also the data you collect from your customers. A single data breach quickly goes viral via social media channels and can result in the loss of consumer confidence, thus tarnishing your brand’s reputation.
While there are robust systems and processes that reinforce strong cybersecurity protocols, such as implementing a security operations team (SecOps), these proactive responses for increasing security require a horizontal alignment between your IT and security teams.
However, your security and IT teams do not use the same tools to meet the enterprise objectives. Furthermore, within the world of cybersecurity, there are myriad different approaches to patching the gaps in your IT system.
Hackers gain access through several different avenues, and once the security team identifies the weaknesses, it must be able to quickly and efficiently communicate the solutions to your IT team. Furthermore, though incoming threats do demand that your security team take a specific action, not every threat detected requires a code red reaction.
The first steps for establishing a sturdy and proactive SecOps team include analyzing your current enterprise objectives, examining the existing security protocols, and assessing your risk management profiles. This information will provide you with an initial revelation as to specific cybersecurity weaknesses and facilitate greater precision for constructing your proactive approach to existing and future threats. Within this process, your SecOps team is better equipped to clearly define the discernment between the varying types of threats as well as the best remedy for each situation.
Another key consideration is determining the best suited method for streamlining communications between your security and IT teams. Automated platforms that can be integrated within your current ITSM, such as ServiceNow’s Security Operations solution, are essential to increasing information transparency. Yet, with so many options that have various levels of complexity, finding the right platform that fits your unique enterprise becomes a time-consuming task. But this doesn’t need to be the case.

What Is an SQL Query Engine? SQL query engine architecture was designed to allow users to query a variety of data sources within a single query. While early SQL-based query engines such as Apache Hive allowed analysts to cut through the clutter of analytical data, they found running SQL analytics on multi-petabyte data warehouses to be a time-intensive process that was difficult to visualize and hard to scale.Explore

Engage Your Workforce with a Modern Employee Intranet Solution The employee intranet has changed significantly since it was first introduced in the early 1990s.

Adopting emerging cloud technologies, consolidating resources, and improving processes is the key. “IT no longer just supports corporate operations as it traditionally has but is fully participating in business value delivery. Not only does this shift IT from a back-office role to the front of business, but it also changes the source of funding from an overhead expense that is maintained, monitored, and sometimes cut, to the thing that drives revenue,” said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner.Explore
Deliver Powerful Insights Instantaneously with Federated Queries - No Matter Where Your Data Resides The concept of federated queries isn’t new. Facebook PrestoDB popularized the idea of distributed structured query language (SQL) query engines in 2013. Over the years, AWS, Google, Microsoft, and many others in the industry have accelerated the adoption of a distributed query engine model within their products. For example, AWS developed Amazon Athena on top of the Presto code base, while Google’s BigQuery is based on Cloud SQL.Explore
What is Unstructured Data? Almost 80% of the data that enterprises and organizations collect is unstructured - data without a set record format or structure.
