Dataguise, a provider of big data security and protective intelligence solutions, has introduced the Dataguise DgSecure data protection platform with the MapR Sandbox for Hadoop. The Dataguise Security Sandbox, integrated with the MapR Sandbox for Hadoop, is available as a free download from the MapR App Gallery.
Separately, Dataguise also announced the immediate availability of the Dataguise DgSecure data protection platform with the Hortonworks HDP 2.1 Sandbox. The Dataguise Security Sandbox is available as a free download from the Hortonworks site, providing an on-ramp for organizations that need to protect sensitive data and address compliance and data governance in Hadoop.
Developers and administrators can test drive Dataguise's data-centric protection, data discovery and automated masking and encryption techniques in conjunction with MapR. The integrated sandbox is packaged in a self-contained environment for enterprises to use MapR with enhanced, comprehensive visibility of where sensitive data moves, changes, and gets accessed across all workloads in pre-production and production Hadoop environments.
The MapR Sandbox for Hadoop is a fully functional Hadoop cluster with tutorials, demo applications, and browser-based user interfaces to let developers and administrators get started quickly with Hadoop. The Dataguise Security Sandbox complements and extends security in the MapR Distribution, enabling MapR customers to discover and protect sensitive data and address compliance concerns with running Hadoop in production.
Through integration into the Hortonworks security framework, Dataguise is delivering data-centric protection, while offering data discovery, automated masking and encryption, and comprehensive visibility of where sensitive data moves, changes, and gets accessed across all workloads in Hadoop environments. DgSecure complements Hortonworks' recent acquisition of XA Secure and the stack of comprehensive security capabilities needed for enterprise Hadoop.
"In order to realize the benefits of big data, enterprises are getting more proactive about addressing security, privacy and risk in Hadoop. Compliance concerns around credit card information, social security numbers, customer addresses and personal health records are just a few examples of sensitive data that needs to be protected," said Patty Nghiem, vice president of marketing and business development at Dataguise.
