Can CloudWick Analytics Stop Cyber Criminals?

As more transactions are conducted online, companies have much more data to process. Unfortunately, they also have many more cyber criminals who are eager to hack their IT systems and steal valuable customer and employee data. As a result, companies big and small are seeking the most innovative solutions to these problems. For many, the answer has been partnering with CloudWick, allowing them to take advantage of the latest analytics and network technology.

While it is important to have safeguards in place to prevent hacking of databases, the process can sometimes be expensive, prohibiting many companies from installing the measures necessary to guard against cyber criminals. Because of this, CloudWick has developed a system of complex analytics and technology that is effective yet also cost-efficient. This is done by focusing on a company’s security stack, which when consolidated and modernized into an open data platform can become much simpler to use. In doing so, fewer mistakes are made, employee training costs are lowered, and the system can be in place for many years.

In addition to making a security stack simpler to use, CloudWick also focuses on helping companies store their data in the most secure way. Whether this is done on-premises or within a cloud, CloudWick develops a data lake that uses the most advanced analytics and algorithms to capture multiple types of data into a security data platform. When this is done, virtual, cloud, network, and machine data is thus automatically ingested into the platform, resulting in greater efficiency and security.

 

Finally, analytics can be used to stop cyber criminals by focusing on system development that involves using a data lake with one-click search and correlation in the event a cyber attack occurs. In these instances, the CloudWick data lake can automatically integrate with various alerts coming from IDS/IPS, allowing data scientists and engineers to create and install quicker kill-chain responses. When this is done, computer forensics can then be used to examine the attack, analyze any data that may have been breached, and discover any additional changes that may need to be incorporated within the system.
