An overview of the Hortonworks cyber security solution

Malware and cyber attacks don’t target computer systems — people do. These individuals leverage multiple attack vectors such as social, technical, and physical vulnerabilities to achieve their motives using the least effort and risk to accomplish their goal; if a signature based tool stops them, they shift to another method.

To detect and defend against targeted attacks requires shifting away from a rules or signatures based system towards an integrated analytic solution that allows for rapid creation of new detection models. This solution must enable multiple distributed analytic platforms to be rolled out across a government agency to allow for local rapid detection and response, and cross integration between analytic platforms for secure delivery of attack intelligence between internal organizations to provide an agency-wide view of all attacks and response for rapid coordination of response resources.
