Zettaset Big Data Encryption Solution Achieves Certification with MapR Converged Data Platform


Mountain View, Calif. – July 19, 2016 Zettaset, the leader in Big Data security, today announced that its BDEncrypt Plus™ encryption solution is now certified with the MapR Converged Data Platform, the industry’s only converged data platform that integrates the power of Hadoop and Spark with global event streaming, real-time database capabilities, and enterprise storage. With this certification, Zettaset has completed a detailed evaluation and test process with MapR Converged Data Platform, ensuring that sensitive data-in-motion and data-at-rest is protected with fine-grained, role-based access control. Zettaset BDEncrypt Plus will interoperate and provide joint customers with an enterprise-class encryption software solution that is optimized for scalability and performance in Big Data environments.

BDEncrypt Plus provides the ideal data-centric security solution for scale-out Hadoop environments. BDEncrypt Plus not only encrypts data, but protects the integrity of that encrypted data by preventing tampering with access control lists (ACLs) and alerting database administrators if unauthorized access to encrypted data occurs. All Zettaset encryption, virtual key management, and virtual hardware security module (HSM) products adhere to the OASIS open standards for interoperability. These include the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) and Public Key Cryptography Standard (PKCS) #11. These standards provide better data security while at the same time reducing expenditures on multiple, redundant products.

“Building upon the MapR Converged Data Platform’s unified security model, the Zettaset certification brings an added level of protection for sensitive data through fine-grain encryption,” said Geneva Lake, vice president, worldwide alliances, MapR Technologies.

“We look forward to jointly delivering true enterprise-class data encryption capability to MapR customers. Our category-leading Big Data Encryption Suite is designed for flexible deployment, and can easily scale to provide encryption and key management in cloud infrastructures as well as on-premises,” said Jim Vogt, Zettaset CEO.

Product certification is a benefit of the MapR Converge Partners program and makes it easy for customers to identify partner products certified to work with MapR. Customers can use these products and solutions to lower project risks and realize cost savings over custom built solutions. With hundreds of members worldwide, the MapR Converge Partners program includes best-of-breed partners with the shared commitment to bring the best expertise and business solution for each unique customer need.

The MapR Converged Data Platform ensures production success with an architecture designed specifically for business-critical applications, seamless data access and integration, and the ability to run in real-time both operational and analytical processing and applications reliably on one platform.
