Gazzang and DataStax Partner to Deliver Robust Data Security for Big Data

Customers Now Have Access to Enterprise-Class Encryption and Key Management Solutions

Gazzang and DataStax, the commercial leader in Apache Cassandra, have announced a partnership that will help customers meet data security compliance regulations and guard against unauthorized data access or malicious attack, while comprehensively managing their Big Data. As part of the partnership, Gazzang zNcrypt is now available as an integrated data security solution for DataStax Enterprise customers, allowing data to be secured when at rest.

"As we see increased enterprise adoption of NoSQL databases, issues such as data security are going to become increasingly important," commented Matt Aslett, research management, data management and analytics, 451 Research. "Partnerships such as the one struck by DataStax and Gazzang will ensure users are able to combine the flexibility of distributed unstructured data management with the encryption and access control capabilities of zNcrypt."

"Gazzang gives DataStax customers peace of mind, knowing the sensitive information they use to run massive-scale queries and analytics is secure," said Larry Warnock, president and CEO of Gazzang. "Because zNcrypt is optimized for cloud and big data environments, there is no tradeoff between security and performance. This means DataStax Enterprise customers can have the best of both worlds: fast data and maximum protection."

Customers around the world are using Gazzang cloud security applications to secure regulatory data for HIPAA, PCI-DSS, FERPA, FISMA, EU Data Privacy and other compliance mandates. Gazzang is also working with companies to encrypt and protect sensitive customer and business data, as well as the cryptographic keys, from a malicious attack or breach.

Within DataStax Enterprise, Gazzang zNcrypt works as a last line of defense for protecting data, by transparently encrypting and securing information as it gets written to disk, ensuring minimal performance lag in the encryption or decryption process. The solution also includes robust key management and process-based access controls that meet compliance regulations and allow users to store their cryptographic keys separate from the encrypted data.

"This is extremely important for customers concerned about compliance and data security. Adding Gazzang to the DataStax partner ecosystem is further proof of our commitment to provide best-of-breed big data solutions to our customers."
