The rewards that big data can bring are widely recognized: scientific insight, competitive intelligence and improved fraud detection, as well as the benefits derived from sophisticated analyses of vast sets of transactional and behavioral data. As a result of easier-to-implement programs that can scrape this data for analysis, big data analysis is taking off in a variety of businesses, according to the results of a recently conducted SANS survey on the security of big data systems in the enterprise. In it, 55% of more than 200 respondents to take the survey were in pilot, proof of concept or full production of big data systems, while another 28% are planning such implementations.
