As organizations leverage Big Data in the cloud to analyze ever larger quantities of data, the challenge of effectively protecting sensitive data while maintaining usability becomes increasingly difficult. Protegrity, the leading innovator of advanced data security solutions, offers the most comprehensive package of Amazon EMR security available to protect assets and meet regulatory compliance while preserving the performance and analytics vital to Big Data.
Protegrity Big Data Protector for Amazon EMR secures all sensitive data in Hadoop utilizing advanced tokenization and encryption – at rest in the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS); in use during MapReduce, Hive, and Pig processing; and in transit to and from other data systems. This continuous protection ensures the data is secure throughout its lifecycle, no matter where it is or how it’s used. The actual sensitive data is transparently protected with policy-based controls, while non-sensitive data can remain in the clear. This enables maximum usability for users and processes to continue to mine the data for transformative decision-making insights.
