Zettaset Announces Data-in-Motion Encryption for Hadoop

New Encryption Capability Integrated Into Existing Comprehensive Security Solution for Enterprises Using Hadoop

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/25/14 -- Zettaset, the leader in secure Big Data management, today announced the addition of data-in-motion encryption as a new feature in its innovative Zettaset Orchestrator management and security add-on application for Hadoop. Data-in-motion encryption provides organizations with an additional layer of protection for their Hadoop clusters and sensitive data, eliminating access by unauthorized users.

Orchestrator data-in-motion encryption ensures that all networking connections to the Orchestrator web-based console are completely secure within a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) tunnel. Communication links between all cluster nodes are encrypted and authenticated to eliminate the possibility of unauthorized access to data by anyone within the corporate network or Hadoop cluster. Connections from the Orchestrator Business Intelligence (BI) Connector, an API that connects Hadoop clusters with analytics applications, are also protected.

"Risks associated with Hadoop projects include security and privacy challenges," wrote Gartner Research Director & Analyst, Bhavish Sood et. al. "Hadoop certainly wasn't built with enterprise IT environments in mind because there is a shortage of robust security controls in Hadoop."(1)

Orchestrator data-in-motion encryption comes on the heels of Zettaset's data-at-rest encryption, and similarly, is designed to have virtually no negative impact on node and cluster performance. Node performance with encryption is especially critical as more enterprise customers scale up their Hadoop clusters and move from pilot to production.

"Orchestrator data-in-motion encryption for Hadoop represents the next phase of Zettaset's Big Data encryption technology initiative, which began with the release of data-at-rest encryption in late 2013," said Jim Vogt, CEO of Zettaset. "Unlike other Hadoop encryption approaches which are bolt-on point products, Zettaset has integrated encryption into a complete security solution for Hadoop that provides an enterprise-wide framework for identity and access management, as well as security policy enforcement."

Orchestrator's management console automates virtually all manual configuration processes within Hadoop, eliminating the need for professional services and reducing IT resource requirements in the enterprise.

The Orchestrator security and management application is not a Hadoop distribution, but is distribution-agnostic and fully compatible with branded Hadoop distributions from Cloudera and Hortonworks. Orchestrator can replace existing branded Hadoop management products with a more automated and robust Hadoop management platform, which is optimized to deliver superior security and high availability for enterprise customers. Data-in-motion encryption is part of Orchestrator's comprehensive, fully-integrated security solution. Zettaset Orchestrator features and benefits include:

  • Data-at-rest encryption
  • Fine-grained, role-based access control
  • Automated active directory (AD) and LDAP integration
  • Activity monitoring for data capture and compliance reporting
  • Automated installation and configuration of all security components into the Hadoop cluster
  • Patented high-availability which ensures that every Hadoop service is protected with automated fail-over

Data-in-motion encryption for Hadoop will be bundled with every Orchestrator application license, and is scheduled for availability in early Q2, 2014.
