Big Data Security is a Big Job
Learn how to address big data’s BIG challenges
The era of big data is producing unprecedented amounts of data points giving us greater insights that drive exciting research, better business decisions, and in many ways, greater value for customers. To achieve these outcomes, organizations need to be able to handle it efficiently, quickly, and because often this data will include sensitive information – securely, all at scale.
Unfortunately, many organizations hesitate looking at security – and more specifically, encryption – when it comes to big data solutions because they are concerned about deploying at scale or impeding the analytics tools that make these solutions so valuable in the first place.
Thales's portfolio of data protection solutions let customers secure their big data deployments – whether it’s a Hadoop infrastructure, or a non-relational (NoSQL) database such as MongoDB or Couchbase – without getting in the way of the analytics tools that make these solutions important.
Additionally, Thales unifies these – as well as an entire ecosystem of partner encryption solutions – behind a centralized encryption key management appliance.
The Thales data protection portfolio can secure data at multiple points in the Hadoop architecture – from Hive and Hbase to individual nodes in the data lake.
With Thales, customers have a choice.
Each Hadoop big data encryption and tokenization solution is entirely transparent to the end-user and format preserving encryption functionality means that customers will continue to benefit from the analytics tools that draw extra value from growing data stores.
Non-relational or NoSQL databases are versatile database solutions that are well adapted for large quantities of varied data types. Because they comprise more than traditional database tables – using objects and indexes instead – they require a different approach to big data security.
Customers can now protect data in any NoSQL database including leading database vendors such as MongoDB, Cassandra, Couchbase, and HBase.
"As the most popular non-relational database, MongoDB customers demand a simple and secure approach for their robust mission critical applications. Together with Thales, we can offer our Enterprise customers an enhanced solution that includes transparent file encryption and key management, which address the important security challenges customers face."
- Alan Chhabra, VP of Partners at MongoDB
