Big Data is a relatively new term but something that Zenith has been working with for over a decade through our partnership with HP’s Big Data platforms. In the security world it is particularly relevant as our customers seek to leverage and better manage both their existing security infrastructure and data repositories and the ever growing sources of structured and unstructured digital information, both self-generated and from Open Source Information such as broadcast television, websites and social media.

Structured vs Unstructured Data

Unstructured data, human information—such as social media, video, audio, email and free text—is an incredibly rich source of information that contains diverse insights such as sentiment, risks and threats to a government or individual, and even hidden activities of criminals, terrorists, and hackers. It is estimated that 90 percent of all digital information generated is unstructured.

Structured and semi-structured data, stored in traditional databases and data repositories, continues to provide a vital role. With the constantly growing volume of data traditional data warehouses are no longer able to manage the sheer volume and speed of data.

Zenith partners with HP Big Data, the global leader in managing all data types, unstructured, semi-structured and structured – whatever the volume and whatever the data source and type.
