BlueTalon to Provide Unified Data Access Control Across Dell EMC Elastic Data Platform


BlueTalon Steadily Emerging as the Security Platform of Choice for Big Data


NEW YORK, NY & REDWOOD CITY, CA – September 26, 2017 – BlueTalon®, a leader in Data-Centric Security, announced today from the Strata Data Conference New York 2017 that Dell EMC has made BlueTalon’s Unified Data Access Control™ the cornerstone for security in its Elastic Data Platform. Dell EMC’s Elastic Data Platform augments Big Data deployments with enhancements that provide greater user access and elastic scalability. By collaborating with BlueTalon, the Elastic Data Platform can also provide strong, centralized data access security and compliance across platforms.


“Working with Dell EMC underscores that BlueTalon has become the go-to solution for Unified Data Access Control across multiple data platforms for major technology vendors, leading enterprises, and today’s Big Data environments,” said Eric Tilenius, CEO of BlueTalon. “As Big Data clusters proliferate, and the number of different data applications increase, organizations are turning to BlueTalon to consistently apply their data access control policies across multi-vendor data systems so they can easily build, scale and manage a secure data environment.”


BlueTalon’s Unified Data Access Control secures the Dell EMC Elastic Data Platform by enabling the creation and deployment of a common set of security policies delineating who can access which data via simple rules (e.g., allow, deny, or mask the results). BlueTalon’s enforcement points then provide consistent data access control across today’s leading data platforms, including Hadoop, Cassandra, Spark, and RDBMS. This ensures the definition and enforcement of a consistent set of rules across all data platforms.

When combined with BlueTalon’s Unified Data Access Control, Dell EMC’s Elastic Data Platform gives organizations a secure, easy-to-use platform for Big Data with a flexible compute layer, consolidated storage layer, and centralized data access security that delivers performance, management, and cost efficiencies unattainable using traditional big data architectures.


BlueTalon’s Unified Data Access Control platform brings visibility and control directly to the data layer and protects what matters the most: the data itself. BlueTalon unifies data security across modern big data platforms – Hadoop, Spark, and NoSQL – and RDBMS. Businesses can leverage Role-Based Access Controls (RBAC) for key data down to the user level and data element stored, while using Attribute-Based Access Controls (ABAC) that can evolve dynamically with the organization.
