HP Security Voltage is a world leader in data-centric encryption and tokenization—providing trusted data security that scales to deliver cost-effective PCI compliance, scope reduction and secure analytics. HP Security Voltage solutions are used by leading enterprises worldwide, reducing risk and protecting brand while enabling business.

When big data is used in an enterprise environment, the importance of security becomes paramount. Organizations must protect sensitive customer, partner and internal information and adhere to an ever-increasing set of compliance requirements.

One of the great things about a Hadoop deployment, for example, is that it concentrates data from multiple sources and multiple enterprise systems in real-time for analytics and new business insights—however this also brings with it varying (or unknown) protection requirements. As these multiple types of data combine together in the Hadoop “data lake,” the data is accessed by many different users with varying analytic needs. Organizations face the risk of even further reduced control if Hadoop clusters are deployed in a cloud environment.

HP Security Voltage’s data-centric approach protects sensitive data end-to-end from the moment of capture, as it is processed, and stored across a variety of devices, operating systems, databases, and applications. This data-centric approach helps enterprises neutralize data breaches by rendering data valueless, de-identifying data through encryption, tokenization and data masking. HP SecureData for Hadoop includes market leading HP Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE), HP Secure Stateless Tokenization (SST), HP Stateless Key Management, and data masking.
