The vast amount of security information now available requires a new approach to cybersecurity that leverages innovative big data management, correlation and visualization technologies. These approaches allow for enterprises to customize a proactive response to security threats based on their own networks, internal network data and signals from external data sources such as threat intelligence or social media. Gartner expects that security spending will increase 4.7 percent year-over-year in 2015 to $75.4 billion in 2015 as a result of government initiatives, increased legislation and high-profile data breaches.
Srivastava will be based in IKANOW’s Reston, Va. headquarters.
