The Best Data-Centric Security

 

GIVE USERS ACCESS TO THE DATA THEY NEED – NOT A BYTE MORE

Today, enterprises collect and rely on more data than ever to run their business. They need to clearly define the scope of access that users have to enterprise data. With the majority of cyberattacks using stolen user credentials to access confidential information and 71% of corporate employees reporting having access to information they shouldn’t¹ , enterprises need full visibility and control over user access to data.

 

The problem is becoming more acute with the broad adoption of Hadoop, Spark, and other big data technologies. Greater amounts of sensitive data make it into data stores that are inadequately protected.

 

BlueTalon keeps enterprises in control of their data by allowing them to give users access to all the data they need, but not a byte more. The BlueTalon Policy Engine delivers the most fined-grained data protection, data filtering and data masking capabilities and ensures consistency of controls across multiple platforms, including Hadoop, Spark, SQL-based, and Big Data environments — even when deployed in the cloud.

 

Whether you have already deployed Hadoop, Spark, or are just getting started with a new data initiative, BlueTalon gives you visibility and control over who has access to which data. Contact us today to learn about our ground-breaking approach to data access and security.
