BlueTalon Policy Engine
BlueTalon's software provides data-centric security across Hadoop, SQL and other big data environments. The BlueTalon Policy Engine specifically addresses Hadoop's security shortcomings by helping IT manage data access when departments and even individuals require different levels of authorization to view the same data.
In July, BlueTalon struck a deal with Microsoft to integrate the Policy Engine with Microsoft's Azure HDInsight, Microsoft's Hadoop deployment on its Azure cloud platform. In August, Hadoop software developer Cloudera certified BlueTalon for its distribution of Hadoop.
