FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Dataguise (http://www.dataguise.com), a leading innovator of data security intelligence and protection solutions, today announced that DG for Hadoop is now certified on CDH4 (Cloudera's Distribution Including Apache Hadoop Version 4). DG for Hadoop is designed to detect and protect sensitive data in Apache Hadoop environments and is a solution that enables sound corporate governance and compliance practices. The combination of CDH4 and DG for Hadoop delivers data security intelligence for enterprises, providing the confidence in knowing that sensitive data is secure from both internal and external threats.
CDH is the world's most widely deployed distribution of Apache Hadoop in commercial and non-commercial environments. Today, more than half of the Fortune 50 run open source Apache Hadoop based on Cloudera. With tens of thousands of nodes in production, Cloudera has established itself as the category leader that is setting the standard for Apache Hadoop in the enterprise. CDH4 is a 100-percent open source distribution that combines Apache Hadoop with other open source applications within the Hadoop stack to deliver advanced, enterprise-grade features.
"By teaming with Cloudera and becoming a certified developer for Apache Hadoop CDH4, Dataguise is in a prime position to play a central role in the growing need for solutions that protect sensitive data aggregated in Big Data deployments," said Manmeet Singh, CEO, Dataguise. "In partnership with Cloudera, Dataguise and our DG for Hadoop solution will help to enable the broader use of CDH4 for business applications that require a highly secure data environment."
"We're pleased to have Dataguise join our growing network of certified vendors and to complete the certification of DG for Hadoop on CDH4," said Tim Stevens, Vice President of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera. "Building a cluster from the ground up to run an Apache Hadoop cluster can be challenging. There are numerous choices to be made at all levels of the stack, and making those choices can be complicated. The Cloudera Certified Technology program is designed to make those choices easy and reliable and to help enterprises achieve the most from their Big Data initiatives. As an innovative provider of solutions for data security intelligence and protection, Dataguise delivers a compelling solution for CDH users that further enables the secure delivery of their valued data."
The Cloudera Certified Technology program, which Dataguise has joined, makes it simpler for Apache Hadoop technology buyers to purchase the right cluster components and software applications to extract the most value from their data. Clusters that leverage CDH4 alongside Cloudera Certified Technologies, such as DG for Hadoop, operate with reduced risk and lower total cost of ownership.
