Upcoming Events Showcase Protegrity's Leadership in Delivering Advanced Data Security Solutions for Hadoop

Big Data Security Experts From Protegrity and Hortonworks to Host Free Webinar Feb. 11; Visit Protegrity Booth #1428 at Strata + Hadoop World in San Jose, Feb 18-20

STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwired - Feb 10, 2015) - Protegrity, the leading provider of data-centric enterprise data security solutions, will be participating in several events over the next two weeks that will showcase the company's leadership in delivering advanced data security solutions in Hadoop environments.

"Enterprises are storing and processing data across many execution engines at a scale that has not been possible before. This in turn has made security a crucial component of enterprise Hadoop," said Protegrity CEO Suni Munshani. "For highly sensitive data, organizations are looking to apply enterprise grade security in Hadoop to meet corporate risk management standards, privacy policies and complex compliance and regulatory requirements."

Big data security experts from Protegrity will be engaging with clients, partners and others interested in learning more about extending the capabilities of Hadoop native security at the following events:

Webinar with Hortonworks
On Wednesday, Feb. 11 at 1 p.m. ET, Protegrity and Hortonworks will co-host a live webinar, "See Enterprise-Grade Data Security Applied to Hadoop." Raul Ortega, Senior Director of Global Presales at Protegrity, and Balaji Ganesan, Senior Director of Enterprise Security and Strategy at Hortonworks, will demonstrate how to apply advanced data protection methods, including tokenization and encryption, to data at rest and in use, with fine-grained role-based access controls in Hive, Pig, HBase and MapReduce. Webinar attendees will learn how to ingest and protect individual sensitive fields into Hadoop, how role-based controls manage data access from Hive within BI tools, and how companies integrate Hadoop into their enterprise data security framework.

Strata + Hadoop World San Jose
Big data security experts from Protegrity will be available in booth #1428 at Strata + Hadoop World in San Jose, Feb 18-20, to help attendees test drive in a lab-like environment the company's advanced data security solutions for Hadoop environments, including the Protegrity Big Data Protector which allows Hadoop users to have top-to-bottom data protection from the file to the application. Going well beyond traditional access controls and volume encryption, Protegrity is the first vendor to deliver a comprehensive data protection path with granular data security to Apache™ Hadoop®, Teradata Aster, Cloudera, Pivotal, MapR, Hortonworks, IBM BigInsights and other Big Data platforms.

Attendees will also be able to try out the free Protegrity Avatar® for Hortonworks® Sandbox 2.2 Add-on and tutorial, which allows users to learn how to protect and unprotect field-level data using policy-based tokenization with MapReduce, Hive, Pig, and HBase, restrict data access from unauthorized users, and better understand how Protegrity Vaultless Tokenization can enable seamless, usable and secure data in Hortonworks Data Platform.

The full production-ready version of Protegrity Avatar® for Hortonworks®, available now online with a simple per-node maintenance fee, extends the capabilities of HDP native security with Protegrity Vaultless Tokenization, Extended HDFS Encryption, and the Protegrity Enterprise Security Administrator, for advanced data protection policy, key management and auditing. Come visit the Protegrity booth to get an idea of what Protegrity Avatar offerings for other Hadoop distributions such as Cloudera, MapR, and Pivotal would look like, as well.

Presentation: Connecting Data Security in Teradata and Hadoop
As Teradata's premier data security partner, Protegrity will also be delivering a presentation in Teradata booth #1315 at Strata + Hadoop World San Jose on Friday, Feb. 20 at 1 p.m. PT. In "Connecting Data Security in Teradata and Hadoop," Protegrity will discuss various approaches to unify granular, transparent data security between Teradata and Hadoop, and how these approaches can produce massive operational benefits along with a dramatically reduced risk profile compared with a siloed approach.
