Voltage Extends Capabilities of Voltage SecureData Suite for Hadoop to Make Data Protection More Accessible to All Hadoop Users

CUPERTINO, CA – Dec. 9, 2014 – Voltage Security®, the global leader in data-centric security for Hadoop, today announced subscription pricing for its Voltage SecureData Suite for Hadoop to support and align with customer purchasing preferences and to help meet the accelerating demand for Hadoop security.

In addition, the company also announced that Voltage SecureStorage is now available as a stand-alone option on a subscription licensing basis, for those looking for only “data-at-rest” volume encryption in Hadoop. Integrated with Voltage Stateless Key Management, Voltage SecureStorage is often seen as the first step toward full data-centric security for Hadoop in the enterprise.

The demand for Hadoop is accelerating fast, as more US enterprises move from smaller prototype and pilot projects into full production implementations. There are remaining barriers to adoption, however, with security and compliance concerns chief among them. The leading Hadoop distributions are investing and providing value-added capabilities in authentication, authorization, audit and protection.

Voltage complements the leading Hadoop distributions with a unique, proven data-centric approach to protection of sensitive data in Hadoop, which delivers field-level protection for data at rest, in use, and in motion.

“Voltage transforms sensitive data elements with usable, yet de-identified, equivalents that retain the format, behavior, and value of the data,” explained Mark Bower, vice president product management and solutions architecture, Voltage Security. “This means the protected data can be used by applications and analyzed by data scientists – yet, in the event of a data breach, yields nothing of value to attackers.”

The Voltage SecureData Suite for Hadoop is a new data-centric solution protecting sensitive data in Hadoop installations with industry standard, next-generation Voltage Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE), Secure Stateless Tokenization (SST) and Stateless Key Management technologies, and also includes Voltage SecureStorage for volume protection.

Voltage offers subscription pricing and perpetual pricing options to align to different customer needs in procurement, from pilot phase to enterprise-wide deployments. Subscription pricing includes all necessary infrastructure components, for a single, per node price. Subscription pricing can make it easier to configure, and easier to purchase, by reducing the up-front outlay. Many customers begin by purchasing Hadoop on a departmental basis and they are looking for pricing options such as this new subscription pricing from Voltage.
