Securing Enterprise Data with Hadoop : What Are Your Options?

Hosted by Dj D.


A key driver to getting Hadoop into production is to enable rapid time-to-insight for your company. Unfortunately, the realization that sensitive, regulated data— payments transactions, customer personally identifiable information (PII), and more—will be flowing unprotected into the Hadoop “data lake”, can present a big hurdle to implementation. Join us to understand architectural options for securing Hadoop data, illustrated by real-world use cases.
