If you want an effective User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) solution, you’re going to need to leverage Big Data analytics. Coined in 2001, Gartner’s Big Data definition refers to “high-volume, high-velocity and/or high-variety information assets that demand cost-effective, innovative forms of information processing that enable enhanced insight, decision making and process automation”.
In other words, Big Data is made up of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data sets. These data sets are difficult to process using traditional database and software techniques because of the 3 V’s mentioned above. The data is simply too big (volume), moves too fast (velocity) or surpasses the current processing capacity (variety).
