encryption for Hadoop processing
OTTAWA, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - AFORE Solutions, Inc., a leading provider
of cloud, security and networking solutions, today announced CloudLink®
Secure VSA for cloud-based Hadoop Big Data services. CloudLink Secure
VSA for Big Data encrypts data in-motion and at-rest and enables
enterprises to maintain the control of their encrypted data in the
cloud via on-premise encryption key management to secure, manage and
monitor remote Hadoop cluster nodes.
"Big data applications require processing large amounts of data and the
conversion of raw data into high value business intelligence in a
timely fashion, creating heavy resource demands on computing, storage
and the network. Private, public and hybrid cloud services provide the
ideal environment for big data processing due to the elastic and
on-demand benefits of cloud services and the ability to leverage cloud
storage capabilities to store large data sets," said Misha Nossik,
AFORE's CTO. "Data security, SLA and compliance are critical to
maximizing these benefits for big data. CloudLink Secure VSA for Big
Data ensures that data sets are fully protected and meet all compliance
and regulatory requirements in a secure multi-tenant cloud
CloudLink Secure VSA for Big Data alleviates security concerns across
Hadoop implementations through the following advanced features:
Infuses the Hadoop DataNode with a data security layer with policies
controlled by the enterprise user. This requires no change in the
application and is transparent to Hadoop MapReduce or the Hadoop
Distributed File System (HDFS).
Provides a secure WAN connection to encrypt data in-motion in a hybrid
cloud environment for enterprises operating Hadoop cluster nodes both
on-premise and in the cloud.
Provides automation tools to manage the deployment of CloudLink secured
Hadoop in Amazon EC2 or other public cloud infrastructures.
CloudLink Secure VSA for Big Data ensures high performance and high
throughput encryption preserving Big Data performance requirements
AFORE will demonstrate CloudLink for Big Data securing Hadoop clusters
at the RSA conference, February 25 - March 1, at the Moscone Center in
San Francisco, booth 135 (Partner Pavilion).
