Big Data, which may have its challenges and approach, which allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers, represents the future of data storage and management. But it needs some help to get there. That’s where Zettaset comes into motion.
Zettaset creates data security software that is optimized for Big Data environments, and is transparent and compatible with open source Hadoop distributions and NoSQL databases. Zettaset augments open-source components, providing the robust and proven capabilities that enterprises expect and need to ensure the security and integrity of critical data in healthcare, financial services, and retail organizations.
Jim Vogt, CEO of Zettaset has 30 years of leadership experience in both start-up and public corporations, and was formerly CEO at data encryption start-up Ingrian Networks, which was acquired by SafeNet. Jim has also held executive leadership roles at Blue Coat Systems, Trapeze Networks and Nortel.
Secures Data Environments
Zettaset, the leader in Big Data security, is an ISV that provides proven enterprise-class data privacy and protection for Hadoop, NoSQL, and Relational database environments, on-premises as well as in the cloud. The primary products consist of advanced solutions for data encryption.
Zettaset is an ISV producing commercial software, designed for enterprise deployment. Many of their customers/partners are using open source database products like Hadoop and NoSQL, which have relatively limited and immature security models. Organizations in regulated environments like financial services, healthcare, and government have compliance requirements that open source solutions cannot address. Zettaset security solutions for Big Data deliver high performance and scalability that help organizations adhere to compliance requirements, while easily fitting into existing enterprise IT security and policy frameworks. Zettaset products are primarily sold through strategic partners, including IBM Power Systems, HP Enterprise Security, Thales e-Security, and Utimaco.
Unlike traditional security approaches, Zettaset data encryption, data integrity, and access control solutions are designed and performance-optimized to meet the operational challenges of today’s complex and demanding distributed-computing architectures.
“Persistence and the ability to quickly adapt to a rapidly evolving technology landscape and market environment when necessary”, was Jim’s response to the challenges that shared their experience about the starting challenges faced by Zettaset.
Addressing Big Data Security Issues in the Cloud and on-Premises
Zettaset is on track to be the undisputed leader in security solutions that are optimized for performance and scalability in Big Data environments; deliver enterprise-hardened software solutions that ensure data security and integrity in distributed computing architectures, provide security solutions that easily fit into existing security frameworks; and are interoperable across mainstream data environments. These include multiple databases and file systems (Hadoop, NoSQL, and Relational databases; HDFS, GPFS, etc.)
The growth of Big Data has progressed at a faster rate than security can protect it, and will continue to do so. Security and privacy issues are magnified by variables such as large-scale cloud infrastructures, diversity of data sources and formats, and the streaming nature of data. Zettaset provides security solutions that address these challenges, and will continue to innovate to meet the needs of partners and customers.
