To Serve and Protect: Making Sense of Hadoop Security

Duration: 60 Minutes

Hadoop is rapidly becoming a development platform and dominant server environment, and organizations are keen to take advantage of its massively scalable – and relatively inexpensive – resources. It is not, however, without its limitations, and it often requires a contingent of complementary components in order to behave within an information architecture. One area often overlooked is security, a factor that, if not considered from the onset, can insert great risk when putting sensitive data in Hadoop.

Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to learn from veteran Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor as he discusses how security was never a design point for Hadoop and what organizations can do about it. He’ll be briefed by Sudeep Venkatesh of HP Security Voltage, who will explain the intricacies surrounding a secure Hadoop implementation. He will show how techniques like format-preserving and partial-field encryption can allow for analytics over protected data, with zero performance impact.
