CloudLink Secure VSA for Big Data provides secure multi-tenant encryption for Hadoop processing
OTTAWA, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - 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 environment."
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).
