Solution providers eyeing a big data play in the government and financial services sectors may want to consider Zettaset, a startup aimed at making Hadoop more secure and suitable for sensitive data.
The company's flagship product is Zettaset Orchestrator, a cluster management system that addresses some of the known security gaps inherent in Hadoop. The latest release of Orchestrator -- version 5 -- creates a security "wrapper" around any Hadoop distribution, giving enterprises confidence that they can deploy the open-source technology, even when compliance is a requirement.
Zettaset, Mountain View, Calif., works with a handful of solution providers and consultant shops, including Third Eye Consulting and Big Data Partnership. But John Armstrong, vice president of marketing, said the company is "committed to developing an ecosystem of market-leading systems integration partners."
