LOWELL, Mass., June 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Organizations can now efficiently and securely set up, deploy and manage a #Hadoop-based data lake with the new version of #Podium, the enterprise-ready management platform from Podium Data. The new version of Podium meets real-world requirements of enterprises planning to use a data lake to establish “Data as a Platform” within their organizations through three business-critical capabilities: advanced security, the data development lifecycle and accessibility. “At @CIGNA, we are building an enterprise data lake as a next generation data management platform that will allow us to exponentially expand data delivery to the business,” said Don Gray, Chief Data Officer, CIGNA. “Nothing is more important to us than ensuring the security of data in the lake and we place a huge premium on those data lake technologies that are both committed and capable of delivering truly hardened enterprise ready security measures.” Enterprise-Grade Security Hadoop is a powerful tool for building a big data platform but it was not designed to securely manage enterprise data with the controlled access, encryption, and obfuscation required by the modern and secure enterprise. Podium delivers a single, end-to-end security framework around the data in Hadoop that runs from authentication to data protection, including: Active Directory Synchronization Kerberos and Active Directory Authentication Entity-level authorization via Podium impersonation in combination with Sentry/Ranger policies and/or HDFS ACLs
