Gazzang Provides Data Encryption for Pivotal HD

Big data security expert Gazzang has added data encryption and key management support for Pivotal HD, the Hadoop distribution from Pivotal.

Pivotal HD customers are leveraging Gazzang’s encryption and key management solutions to secure sensitive data, including regulated and high-risk data like medical, payment, insurance and financial data. 

"Gazzang is playing an important role in the evolution of our Hadoop offering by providing Pivotal customers with an easy-to-use data security solution,” said Jim Totte, director of business development at Pivotal. “As Pivotal HD and HAWQ grow to be a critical component of enterprise infrastructures, so too will the volume of sensitive data, files and applications that run on and leverage the platform. We’re excited to partner with Gazzang to bring at-rest encryption and key management to our enterprise customers.”

Gazzang zNcrypt provides data encryption without modification of existing infrastructure or applications. The solution also includes process-based access controls governing access to the encrypted data. Gazzang zTrustee is a software-based key server that enables the data owner to set and enforce configurable policies around the encryption key access, can also protect and wrap policy around other digital security artifacts including SSH keys, SSL certificates, tokens and passwords.
