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.
NuCypher allows administrators to delegate permissions to different data sets. They can extend data lakes to more users, securely store sensitive data, and share it with users across departments and organizations. Fine-grained access controls keep everyone in check and limits access to the data they need.
Inherit access policies from your existing LDAP/AD/Kerberos setup to maintain real-time user provisioning and synchronization.
Control who can use data, where they can use it, and when they can use it. With granular field and column-level permissions, users can only decrypt the specific slices of the data they are allowed to access.
Keep administrators and users in their swim lanes to meet compliance and governance requirements. Enforce role-based access controls (RBAC) that are granular enough to enforce the principles of least privilege and separation of duties.
