Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) is built with open sourced technology which lets customers take advantage of the innovations delivered by both Hortonworks and the rest of the open-source community. HDP uses Hadoop to centralize the data management architecture for running batch, interactive, and real-time applications simultaneously across a shared dataset. Even though Hadoop allows for the clustered use of commodity servers, HDP is built for the enterprise with robust data security, governance, and operations features that work across component technologies and integrate with existing systems. HDP is deployable in cloud, on-premises, or from an appliance across both Linux and Windows. HDP integrates with Thales ProtectFile to secure data across the Hadoop framework.
Thales ProtectFile ensures that sensitive data is secured across the Hortonworks Data Platform with transparent and automated encryption. Thales ProtectFile attaches security directly to the data itself ensuring that as it travels across nodes and servers, it will protected from unauthorized access. Additionally, Thales ProtectFile gives administrators access controls to restrict data access on a granular level. Thales ProtectFile is used in conjunction with Thales KeySecure for centralized policy and key management, and comprehensive logging capabilities for customer audit requirements.
Thales Luna HSMs are used to secure the sensitive master encryption key across the Hortonworks Data Platform to enable transparent and automated encryption. The benefits of using Thales HSMs with Ranger KMS include: Secure generation, storage, and protection of the master key on FIPS 140-2 level 3 validated hardware*. Full life cycle management of the keys.
