AtScale Reveals Updated Platform with New Security Features

AtScale is unveiling an upgraded platform that introduces new innovations to enterprise security and performance.

AtScale Intelligence 4.0 platform features application-level Role-Based Access Controls and can be automatically synchronized with security groups managed by LDAP or Active Directory. 

It also introduces a new patent-pending innovation: the industry’s first Hybrid Query Service for BI on Hadoop, according to the company. 

This innovation enables enterprises to query Hadoop at top speed, from any BI tool in MDX and SQL mode, natively.

 “With the release of Version 4.0, AtScale offers the most comprehensive security controls available in the BI-on-Hadoop category,” said Josh Klahr, vice president of product management, AtScale. “Enterprises attempting to turn Hadoop into a true analytical data warehouse face lagging query performance, security issues, and a frustrating experience for business users. With this release, AtScale eradicates these issues and provides a seamless and secure experience that is second to none.”

 AtScale’s True Delegation capabilities ensure that every query executed on the Hadoop cluster is associated with the end-user who generated the query and satisfies the most stringent data governance and access auditing policies.  

The Platform works seamlessly with Apache Sentry, Apache Ranger and fully supports LDAP, Active Directory, and Kerberos.   

 Additionally, the update enhances AtScale’s Hybrid Query Service to support MDX and SQL natively, without having to download new clients or custom drivers to end-user machines.

"Our benchmark research shows that business intelligence tools are the most common technology for big data analytics," said David Menninger, SVP & Research Director, Ventana Research. “Platforms that enable utilization of these tools with Hadoop, such as AtScale, allow organizations to operate in their preferred environment as they seek to extract value from their big data sources."

The company is demoing these features at the Strata O’Reilly Conference this week at booth #1622.
