Separate compute and storage and maintain data context with CDP’s SDX.
SDX is Cloudera’s integrated set of security and governance technologies that leverage deployment’s rich metadata. Together, these capabilities provide the exclusive data context layer across all analytics and for all public and private clouds.
With SDX, organizations can deploy fully secured and governed data lakes faster. An integral and intrinsic part of CDP, SDX reduces security risk and operational costs by delivering consistent data context across deployments. Multi-tenant data access and governance policies are set once, and automatically enforced across the data lifecycle in hybrid as well as multi-clouds.
Unlike other vendors’ bolt-on approaches to security and governance, CDP delivers SDX as a fundamental part of its architecture, simplifying the delivery of consistent data context across hybrid and multi-cloud with a security model that is defined once and seamlessly applied everywhere.
Automatic data profiling
Easy, secure data access
Automatic data profiling
Automatically classify and characterize new data as it arrives, ensuring corporate standards and compliance.
With data volumes of any type exploding, quickly making new data available to end users lets organizations capitalize on the flood of information. The limiting factor is the time taken to understand the data. SDX automatically profiles new data to build insight and classify sensitive information, triggering the appropriate access policies and ensuring ongoing compliance.
Self-service data access
Open access to all data for all users, with complete security and compliance.
Innovation and digital transformation require organizations to uncover insight and value from their data at scale. The key enabler is giving users access to all data and analytics to experiment and implement new use cases. SDX delivers consistent security and governance for multi-tenant data access across all deployments, marrying free access with safety and compliance.
Achieve compliance, bolster trust in the marketplace, and avoid financial penalties.
Regulatory compliance (e.g. GDPR and CCPA) demands a modern data architecture that decreases business and security risks stemming from ever-changing data privacy requirements. SDX lets you identify and manage sensitive data for compliance without disruption to business processes and provides consistent security and governance transparently across all data and deployments.
Secure by design
SDX’s data context architecture ensures CDP is secure by design, unlike the approach taken by other vendors where security is an afterthought or is bolted on. As a result, organizations can make new data available quickly and without compromise. SDX delivers comprehensive security right out of the box for data lakes as they are deployed and data as it is used.
