Dataguise Launches DgSecure Version 5.0

The new software version adds security access monitoring and entitlement functionality that allow administrators to define and audit sensitive data interactions. The platform provides information about the status of sensitive data, with greater control over which users can view the information. It accomplishes this by combining sensitive data discovery with integrated Access Control List (ACL) permissions as defined in Apache Sentry, Apache Ranger or MapR’s ACLs. "Automation is critical. Big data does not mean big hiring. Our customers are constantly challenged by the human scale problem behind big data, and their projects are growing in size, complexity, scale, but their manpower isn't," Jeremy Stieglitz, vice president of product management for Dataguise, told eWEEK. "Finding Hadoop expertise has and continues to be a real bottleneck to project success. When we bring and add security into the mix, we cannot be a people tax. Automation is a way to add security and compliance, without adding a huge operational overhead for how to manage and deploy security."
The platform provides multi-cluster support from a single integrated dashboard with certified integrations for Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR, and Pivotal HD. It also provides advanced encryption key management and integration with Safenet, RSA and Thales, featuring industry-standard Key Management Interface Protocol (KMIP) support.
