Companies are adopting big data platforms as low-cost, high-performance alternatives to legacy data warehouses. Hadoop, Spark, and NoSQL databases are powering data lakes that store both structured and unstructured data, much of which is sensitive. Different teams need access to these repositories, including business analysts, data scientists, and developers.
Enforcing existing enterprise security models in this new paradigm has proven difficult. Most big data platforms were not designed with security in mind and legacy data protection products impose unacceptable trade-offs. NuCypher allows you to cryptographically enforce existing roles and user privileges, without sacrificing performance, functionality, or increasing costs.
