Cybersecurity gets a threat hunting boost through Ahana Cloud and Securonix partnership
Cybersecurity firm Securonix announced that it has enhanced its data analysis service through a partnership with Ahana Cloud, maker of the open-source SQL query engine Presto, which is currently being offered as a managed service on Amazon Web Services or as an open source solution. The integration leverages Presto's speed and scale in enabling real-time, large-volume data analysis for threat detection and management, according to SiliconANGLE.
Ahana co-founder and Chief Product Officer Dipti Borkar said the partnership was driven by enterprises' growing need to process increasingly large amounts of data, which has been opening up opportunities for open-source technology providers like Ahana. Borkar also noted the ability of their product to be integrated into a company's IT system without hiring staff or spending weeks to adapt it also ties into the industry's shift to a managed service model.
"We're moving from gigs to terabytes to petabytes and that's where the analytic stack is moving," Borkar said.
Qualcomm on Tuesday disclosed nearly two dozen security vulnerabilities in its chipsets, including the company’s flagship suite of SnapDragon processor chips and affecting products that range from cars to powerline communications.
Open source software utilization has been scaled back by nearly 40% of industry professionals due to security concerns, with more than 50% reducing open source usage following the emergence of the widespread Log4j vulnerability, The Register reports.
New security vulnerabilities have been added by Keksec threat group, also known as Kek Security, FreakOut, and Necro, to its Enemybot Linux-based botnet to attack web servers, content management systems, and Android devices, reports The Hacker News.
