Learn Big Data Security Challenges and Solutions

Big data security’s mission is clear enough: keep out on unauthorized users and intrusions with firewalls, strong user authentication, end-user training, and intrusion protection systems (IPS) and intrusion detection systems (IDS). In case someone does gain access, encrypt your data in-transit and at-rest.
This sounds like any network security strategy. However, big data environments add another level of security because security tools must operate during three data stages that are not all present in the network. These are 1) data ingress (what’s coming in), 2) stored data (what’s stored), and 3) data output (what’s going out to applications and reports).
