Frost & Sullivan Acclaims HP Security Voltage for Product Leadership in Big Data and Analytics

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — March 24, 2015 – Based on its recent analysis of security issues in the big data and analytics market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes HP Security Voltage with the 2015 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership. The HP Security Voltage portfolio of data-centric security solutions was recognized for its technical innovation, design sophistication, strategic product positioning, operational efficiency and ability to align with the market’s evolving needs.

With a founding vision of commercializing identity-based encryption (IBE), HP Security Voltage delivered HP SecureMail, now one of the world’s most popular email encryption solutions. Since then, HP Security Voltage has continued to innovate and deliver easy-to-use, standards-based data-centric encryption technologies for data at rest, in use, and in motion. This is in contrast to traditional network-based approaches to security, which haven’t responded directly to the emerging need for data-centric security that neutralizes the effects of a data breach through protection of sensitive data at the field-level.

“The HP Security Voltage product line promises to deliver performance and scalability, while reducing the cost and complexity of securing large, heterogeneous data environments,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Sandy Borthick.

The HP Security Voltage patented Format-Preserving Encryption (HP FPE) encrypts specific data fields at the data source, at ingestion or within the Hadoop environment, enabling de-identified data to be securely processed, stored and analyzed in and beyond Hadoop, anywhere in the Enterprise ecosystem. The patent-pending HP Secure Stateless Tokenization (HP SST) technology secures payment card data, enabling Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance and potential PCI audit scope reduction in Hadoop clusters.

HP SecureData for Hadoop employs integrations with Sqoop, UDFs, MapReduce and Hive to enable data-centric security in Hadoop. HP SecureData for Hadoop preserves the data format and its referential integrity, so that decryption is not necessary for data queries, database joins or analytics. With usable data for many applications in its de-identified state, clients have little need to expose live data in use. These data-centric technologies provide granular policy controlled field-level encryption and tokenization from a single data protection platform with unified key management and the ability to use existing Identity and Access Management (IAM) systems including AD, and LDAP.

“HP Security Voltage products are well-positioned to replace traditional encryption solutions and are designed to interoperate with existing authorization and authentication systems,” noted Sandy Borthick. “Organizations that must comply with governmental privacy directives and companies that want to avoid data breaches from advanced persistent threats (APTs) will benefit from the HP Security Voltage product line.”

Because HP Security Voltage is successfully meeting the emerging market demand for data-centric security, the organization is well-qualified to receive Frost & Sullivan’s Product Leadership Award in the big data and analytics market.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the organization that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality, gaining rapid acceptance in the market. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
