Zettaset Brings Data-At-Rest Encryption To Hadoop

Latest version of Orchestrator also features fine-grained role-based access control and LDAP/AD integration

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., November 20, 2013 – Zettaset, the leader in secure Big Data management, announced today that it has added data-at-rest encryption capabilities to Zettaset Orchestrator, its distribution-agnostic Hadoop cluster management platform. Organizations with strict corporate and/or industry compliance requirements, such as those in the financial, retail, and healthcare verticals can now confidently deploy Hadoop in environments where personal information data must be tightly safeguarded.

Encryption is the latest in a series of security features that make Zettaset Orchestrator the first choice for organizations looking for a true enterprise-class Hadoop management solution for their Big Data deployments. Orchestrator also features fine-grained role-based access control and LDAP/AD integration, which enables it to easily fit into existing security policy frameworks.

Encryption can be optionally installed during the automated Orchestrator installation process.

Taking a standards-based approach, Zettaset Orchestrator uses the 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256) to ensure the highest levels of encryption and data security. Orchestrator encryption is based on the KMIP protocol, and can easily integrate with a company's existing key manager in any Hadoop environment. The Orchestrator encryption feature has been carefully engineered to eliminate any noticeable impact on Hadoop cluster performance.

"Encryption is a very specialized capability, and there are few viable options available today for Hadoop users," said Jim Vogt, Zettaset CEO. "When it comes to risk management, Zettaset Orchestrator with data-at-rest encryption gives customers the upper hand, supporting compliance mandates such as HIPAA, BSA/AML and PCI-DSS, for example, and provides assurance that their Hadoop cluster data is protected against malicious attacks."

"Securing Hadoop data has been a work in progress," said Tony Baer, principal analyst for Ovum. "Zettaset's support of encryption as part of its Orchestrator cluster management product is an important step toward making data protection in Hadoop policy-driven."

Zettaset Orchestrator is an independent commercial software application that is fully compatible with open source distributions. Zettaset Orchestrator encryption benefits and features include:

· Helps regulated companies meet strict electronic data security and compliance requirements

· Uses 256-bit AES encryption, the highest standard available

· Easily integrates with existing key managers using standard KMIP protocol

· Contributes negligible impact on Hadoop cluster performance, an important consideration as Hadoop users scale up their enterprise deployments
