Organizations are vulnerable to the risk of security breaches in the Hadoop environment, by not being able to fulfill regulatory mandates such as HIPAA, PCI, and SOX. This leaves organizations exposed to the risk of security breaches in the Hadoop environment. Secure Hadoop (SHadoop) is a strategic initiative taken by the Company earlier this year. Zettaset Orchestrator v5 addresses the security gaps and vulnerabilities that exist in all Apache-based Hadoop distributions.
New features significantly improving Hadoop cluster security and manageability are as follows:
- Support for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Active Directory (AD), enabling Hadoop clusters to seamlessly integrate with existing security policies within the enterprise environment
- Centralized configuration management, logging, and auditing, which maintains control of ingress and egress points in the cluster, and enables Hadoop clusters to meet compliance requirements for reporting and forensics
- Role-based access control (RBAC), which significantly improves the user authentication and access process, and enables Kerberos to be run against all components of a big data ecosystem, not just Hadoop
“With Orchestrator v5, enterprises can now confidently deploy distributed Hadoop clusters in environments that require high levels of security and compliance, such as finance, healthcare, retail, and government,” said Jim Vogt, president and CEO of Zettaset. “Furthermore, our software solution is highly flexible, and can reside on top of any Apache-based Hadoop distribution.”
