Blockchain, Bigdata, and cloud computing, the future of security
2018’s arsenal is loaded with blockchain, bigdata, and cloud computing, with security as the prime motive
Whenever blockchain, bigdata, and cloud computing are talked about, security serves as a plus point favoring these three technologies. Although they may fall under different genres, the factor of data protection brought to the table by these technologies play a vital role in their adaptation. Consider bitcoin for instance, the major selling point for the cryptocurrency is that, all transactions are traceable, however insignificant or otherwise. Similar is bigdata, allowing organizations to eliminate the treats associated with on-premise infrastructure, while malware such as ransomware are looming around the corner.
Organizations have grown to the likes of such cloud-based technologies owing to the minimal risks they bring to the table, let alone the fact that they minimize the costs associated bulky, space consuming, and power-hungry equipment. Unlike on-premise infrastructure, cloud-based computing restricts access to authorized personnel, without allowing for any physical tempering or infusion of malware. Similarly, industry leaders have embraced bitcoin, as remote deletion of data is practically impossible; the omnipresent ledger serves as a foolproof measure to access data, quite literally from any source without having to worry about infringement. Documentation and data transfer are likely to based blockchain as they achieve interoperability and data exchange, without falling prey to data theft and malware attacks. As more and more organizations adopt these proof of concepts, cloud-based technology verticals that serve as pillars to the future generation of information security will rightly dominate 2018.
