Secure Hadoop with Centrify
When your Hadoop is migrated from a test to production environment for Compliance and Security Best Practise you will switch to Secure Mode to ensure that sensitive business information is only accessed by authorised personnel.
Centrify makes it simple to run Hadoop in secure mode by leveraging your existing identity management infrastructure - Active Directory. You can minimise costs by utilising your existing Active Directory infrastructure, with no requirement for a Hadoop specific Directory.
By extending the power of Active Directory’s Kerberos and LDAP capabilities to your Hadoop clusters, Centrify delivers authentication for Hadoop administrators and end users.
Hadoop environments store your organization’s most important data. Centrify controls access, manages privileges, audits activity and associates everything back to an individual, thereby making your data more secure. Centrify delivers cost-effective compliance with reporting on who has access and who did what across Hadoop clusters, nodes and services.
