Dataguise Kicks Off Big Data Protection Partner Program with Leading Hadoop Vendors

Dataguise has created a Big Data Protection Partner Program built around the Dataguise product suite, which delivers data privacy protection and risk assessment analytics. Dataguise technology partners include Hadoop distribution companies, Cloudera, Hortonworks and MapR, and its product integrations are certified with Cloudera’s CDH 5, Hortonworks 2.0 and MapR M Series. Dataguise also has partnerships with system integrators and resellers such as Knowledgent and Carahsoft and is forging additional ISV and OEM relationships with leading solution providers in the Big Data ecosystem.

According to Dataguise, its software can work with all big data platforms and ETL technologies to protect structured and unstructured data sources. Dataguise automates the discovery, masking, encryption and protective intelligence for Big Data in Hadoop, relational databases including Oracle, DB2 and SQL Server, and online file systems such as Sharepoint. In doing so, it enables enterprises to leverage big data without exposing or risking sensitive customer, employee or business information.

“As big data becomes a strategic business asset and an integral component of the modern data architecture, there is one important factor that can be easily overlooked in the race to analyze and make sense of this valuable information: security,” noted John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing, Hortonworks. “The ability to discover and protect sensitive data is critical in any Big Data solution, and we welcome the integration with Dataguise to help our customers ensure the security of their enterprise Hadoop deployments.”
