BlueTalon Unveils BlueTalon Test Drive at Strata+Hadoop World



 BlueTalon Eliminates Data Security Blind Spots with Data-Aware Security 


REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and New York, Sept. 27, 2016— BlueTalon, the leader in Data-Centric Security, announced today the availability of BlueTalon Test Drive, making it easy for organizations to trial its award-winning data-aware security. In celebration of this milestone and for a limited time, BlueTalon is making BlueTalon Test Drive available at no charge to attendees of Strata+Hadoop World.

Data security is one of the remaining challenges preventing organizations from maximizing the power of new big data technology. The proliferation of data storage and processing tools in support of big data initiatives is leaving businesses exposed to new vulnerabilities including the inability to monitor and track who is accessing what data. By applying data access controls at the data layer, BlueTalon eliminates security blind spots where it matters the most: at the data layer.


The BlueTalon Test Drive provides an opportunity to easily trial BlueTalon security for one month and evaluate how data-aware access controls can simplify security and compliance on big data technology such as Hadoop. Organizations who sign-up for the test for the test drive will receive at no charge:

  • A 30-day license to the software, including a self-contained and pre-configured environment to experience BlueTalon on a Hadoop cluster;
  • Two hours of consulting support from a BlueTalon expert;
  • The ability to build visibility reports relevant to their use of big data platforms.


“Data-driven businesses are now using Hadoop, Spark, or NoSQL to power new data initiatives. Unfortunately, traditional security is no longer sufficient to satisfy users’ increasing demand for access to more data while security and compliance requirements get tighter,” said Eric Tilenius, chief executive office, BlueTalon. “BlueTalon is propelling data security into a new era. With visibility and control directly applied to data, businesses can address both data security and compliance with less effort.”


Qualified organizations can sign-up for BlueTalon Test Drive at booth #355 during Strata+Hadoop World New York held at the Javits Convention Center, Sep 26-29, 2016.
