Interview with Mark Micallef, VP at Cloudera

Who are Cloudera and what is their position in the Australian IT Security landscape?

Australia is a fairly advanced market for big data, much of which is being driven by the relatively broad adoption of cloud-based services. Recent reports, such as those conducted by Australian analyst Telsyte, point to a billion-dollar market for cloud infrastructure and services by the year 2020. It was also reported that 83% of Australian CIOs plan to invest more on big data in 2017 than they did in the previous year.

The telecommunications industry, in particular, has the highest proportion of businesses using the cloud according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. In the finance and insurance services industry, several organizations who have yet to migrate to the cloud are holding back due to the risk of a security breach.

During the cloud migration process, business leaders are often too focused on gaining efficiency from the clouds that they struggle to keep up with the challenge of managing co-mingled data. To overcome this, data has to be categorized properly with the right authentication and authorization access. Data also needs to be encrypted and the encryption needs to be well managed. This is where Cloudera comes in – we help organizations to ensure that data is secure from the outset.

At Cloudera, we believe that data can make what is impossible today, possible tomorrow. We empower people to transform complex data into clear and actionable insights. We are the leading platform provider for machine learning, analytics and data management built for the cloud. The world’s largest organizations trust Cloudera to help improve product and services, understand their citizens, and lower organizational risk.

 

What new product offering or messaging is Cloudera looking to promote throughout Australia at the moment?

At Cloudera, we’re constantly working to help customers push the boundaries of what’s possible with data. Cloudera Data Science Workbench, which enables fast, easy, and secure self-service data science for the enterprise is a perfect example of that. It dramatically accelerates the ability of teams to build, scale, and deploy machine learning and advanced analytics solutions using the most powerful open source technologies. Cloudera Data Science Workbench lets data scientists manage their own analytics pipelines, including built-in scheduling, monitoring, and email alerting. Quickly develop and prototype new machine learning projects before deploying to production.

 

What do Cloudera see as some of the key challenges facing senior IT Security executives within their space?

Cloudera empowers cybersecurity innovators to proactively secure the enterprise by accelerating threat detection, investigation, and response through machine learning and complete enterprise visibility. Cloudera’s cybersecurity solution, based on Apache Spot, enables anomaly detection, behavior analytics, and comprehensive secure access across all enterprise data using an open, scalable platform. Building off of Cloudera’s scalable, open platform allows organizations to build custom security solutions as well as deploy packaged applications on top of one shared enriched data set. Using the diverse open source community to accelerate shared innovations, while changing the economics of cybersecurity, allows organizations to come together to fight back against cyber threats.

 

What differentiates the current suite of Cloudera services from other providers?
