"IoT is defined by many to be the “collection, processing, and analysis of information from sensors on a large number of disparate devices.” The Internet of Things represents the next wave of big data in the enterprise.As IT organizations move away from legacy data and application management approaches and toward Hadoop, Spark and the data lake, SnapLogic’s scale-out architecture and breadth of connectivity have become essential ingredients for the modern integration fabric. The Internet of Things aligns well with big data initiatives because they share the same core attributes: Data collection from multi structured data sources-Data management at a large scale,Complex processing.

The road to industrial IoT security

Article | February 25, 2020

One of the main topics of this year’s RSA Conference is IT-OT cybersecurity convergence. But what are we talking about? Industrial IoT (IIoT) is all around us: in water, in gas, and electricity distribution networks, running power plants and critical infrastructure, in production lines and transportation networks, and more. In the traditional IT world, security risks involve threats that would undermine the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data and systems. Given that in 2019, $3.5 billion was lost to known cyber-scams and ransomware according to the FBI’s Internet Crime Report, the impact is largely financial. IIoT drives the physical world where operational technologies (OT) are used. The risk in IIoT environments involves threats that would undermine the operational safety (physical security of goods and people, environmental impact) and the availability or even the physical integrity of the production process. Theft of intellectual property and trade secrets is a major concern, and the impact is not just financial, but also social, human, and ecological.

Emerging Technologies in the Pandemic Crisis: 10 Use Cases and Future Outlook

Article | April 9, 2020

As professionals in the emerging tech space, we are well aware of the many benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT), augmented and virtual reality (AR, VR), artificial intelligence (AI), and drones and robotics. Therefore, we cannot help but wonder: What if most of the emerging technologies were widely available already now that we are going through the COVID-19 pandemic? How much different the fight would be today? If anything, they would have kept us better prepared to combat the virus outbreak and go through it with minimum sacrifices of our jobs and daily lives. We have identified ten such use cases that can help humanity progress today and in the coming months or years.

How Big Data and IoT Are Connected

Article | April 1, 2020

Big data as a term and a field, has been around for some time. It relates to the ways in which we study, analyze and process data sets that are too large to be handled by traditional data-processing software. Data can be described as ‘big’ when it demonstrates the four ‘V’ qualities: veracity (accuracy), velocity (speed), volume (size) and variety (both structured and unstructured). IoT, on the other hand, came much later and relates to devices, data and marrying them together. This area looks at making devices ‘smart’ (anything from watches to kettles) and collecting data about their performance or usage to influence consumer behavior.

OT/IoT Security Superheroes: Tackling the Remote Employee Challenge

Article | April 14, 2020

Organizations around the world are coping with a variety of challenges related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Many companies are struggling to convert their processes from ‘in-office’ to ‘remotely accessible’. And, they’re scrambling to find new ways to “remote” tasks – with “remote” now becoming a verb. For example, we’ve heard from many customers that adding or expanding remote employee access capabilities is a hot topic. One such customer told us that they went from 9% of their workforce working remotely, to 52%. Wow! That’s not only a substantial change to operations and processes – it also directly impacts the company’s security posture. The challenge facing OT security practitioners is daunting. We absolutely must secure the people and systems responsible for saving mankind from an alien super-virus pandemic. But, while the bad guys are lobbing attacks from afar, the good guys are acting behind the scenes like NPCs (non-player characters). They’re bypassing the security systems we developed through years of hard work, like using Gmail or Zoom, or turning off anti-virus, in the name of getting things done.
