How to Calculate Log Analytics ROI

Calculating log analytics ROI is often complicated. For many teams, this technology can be a cost center. Depending on your platform, the cost of a log management solution can quickly add up. For example, many organizations use solutions like the ELK stack because the initial startup costs are low. Yet, over time, costs can creep up for many reasons, including the volume of data collected and ingested per day, required retention periods, and the associated personnel needed to manage the deployment.

How to Threat Hunt in Amazon Security Lake

Establishing a proactive security posture involves a data-driven approach to threat detection, investigation, and response. In the past, this was challenging because there wasn’t a centralized way to collect and analyze security data across sources, but with Amazon Security Lake it is much simpler.

How to Search Your Cloud Data - With No Data Movement

Organizations are building data lakes and bringing data together from many systems in raw format into these data lakes, hoping to process and extract differentiated value out of this data. However, if you’re trying to get value out of operational data, whether on prem or in the cloud, there are inherent risks and costs associated with moving data from one environment to another.

5 Proactive Security Engineering Techniques for Cloud-Native Teams

Developing a proactive security strategy can potentially save an organization millions of dollars per year. According to IBM, the average cost of a data breach in 2023 added up to a staggering $4.45 million, up 15% over the last three years. This is especially true for cloud-native environments, which face unique security challenges due to their dynamic nature. Instead of waiting to respond to cybersecurity incidents after they happen, it's much better to embrace a proactive approach, and prevent them in the first place.

Threat Hunting Frameworks and Methodologies: An Introductory Guide

Establishing an effective cyber threat hunting program is among the top priorities of enterprise security leaders seeking a proactive approach to detecting and counteracting potential threats. Furthermore, implementing a proactive threat hunting program, security teams that leverage formalized frameworks or threat hunting methodologies are far more likely to detect vulnerabilities or in-process malicious activities in their environments than those that do not. However, data from a 2023 threat hunting survey revealed that while 73% of organizations have adopted a defined threat hunting framework, only 38% actually follow it.

5 Guiding Principles of Digital Business Observability

Modern data-driven organizations are synergizing operations observability, business intelligence, and data science with digital business observability programs that break down data silos, increase productivity, and drive innovation. Digital business observability combines IT and business data with cutting-edge data science techniques, enabling deeper analysis and unlocking valuable insights that propel innovation across use cases from sales and marketing to product design and financial operations.

3 Straightforward Pros and Cons of Datadog for Log Analytics

Observability is a key pillar for today’s cloud-native companies. Cloud elasticity and the emergence of microservices architectures allow cloud native companies to build massively scalable architectures but also exponentially increase the complexity of IT systems.

A Deep Dive into Multi-Model Databases: Hype vs. Reality

In 2009, as the world became increasingly data-driven, organizations began to accumulate vast amounts of data — a period that would later be characterized as the Big Data revolution. While most organizations were used to handling well-structured data in relational databases, this new data was appearing more and more frequently in semi-structured and unstructured data formats.
