New Requirements for Security Monitoring

Today's information security threats are difficult to defend against. On the one hand, the volume of malware variants has gone through the roof over the past few years. On the other, targeted attacks have become more stealthy and damaging.

Tibco and LogLogic: An Interesting and Revealing Acquisition

Over the past few years, a number of independent Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) vendors were acquired by bigger players. In late 2010, HP scooped up market leader ArcSight for $1.5 billion. Last year, McAfee purchased Nitro Security while IBM acquired Q1 Labs.

My Take On The Security IPOs: Infoblox, Palo Alto Networks, and Splunk

Splunk (SPLK) went public this week and both Infoblox and Palo Alto Networks will soon follow. This could be the start of a security IPO run moving forward. Why? Status quo security defenses aren't working so there is a burgeoning market for next-generation security technologies. This market opportunity has driven M&A activities for years but we've recently seen far broader interest in security. HP grabbed ArcSight and started a security business unit. IBM acquired Q1 Labs and did the same. Dell purchased SecureWorks and SonicWall. Investment is pouring into the security sector driving innovation and a present and future wave of IPOs.

The Intersection of Security Intelligence and Big Data Analytics

It's official, the security industry has jumped on the "big data" bandwagon with both feet. How do I know? Well, I'm participating in a panel discussion on this topic at RSA and I believe there are 2 other sessions on the topic. I guess anyone headed to San Francisco later this month should be prepared to get a big dose of big data.
