BlueTalon Boosts Hadoop Security With Policy Engine
BlueTalon is another company that's addressing Hadoop's security shortcomings. Specifically, it's working to resolve the problem of how to manage data access when departments, and even individuals, require different levels of authorization to view the same data.
The BlueTalon Policy Engine helps secure Hadoop clusters by enforcing granular data-centric access control policies and provisioning throughout an organization. The technology provides realtime data-access authorization at the row, column and even cell level at runtime for each query. The software safeguards data by developing, enforcing and auditing data-access policies.
