(Ghostwriter) Marketing for information security products is filled with buzzwords of the day, especially when looking at artificial intelligence and machine learning. Even by themselves, AI/ML are hard words to define, so how do decision-makers untangle the marketing jargon to really understand what they are buying? Before purchasing a security solution, decision-makers need to look under the covers at what security vendors are offering in the way of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

As big data evolved, the analytics tools graduated from custom code like MapReduce, Hive, and Pig to tools like Spark, Python, and Tensorflow, whic...

(Ghostwriter) Life is a journey, but getting to your data shouldn’t have to be.
Data is the lifeblood of most businesses, but many organizations aren’t taking full advantage of their data because it’s complex, globally distributed and hard to access.
From high-resolution sensors on the edge to industrial IoT devices, the growth in unstructured data is exploding. There are more data sources emitting more data than ever before. This diversity of data types causes new silos to appear for specific kinds of pro...
