Cloudera provides centralized security and compliance policies that are enforced across multiple workloads. Without Cloudera's shared data experience (SDX), organizations require different security policies for different use cases and workloads, such as data engineering, data warehouse, and data science usage. This presents real risks: As data flows among use cases, security policies need to be constantly updated or duplicated. More policies to keep up to date means greater risk of breach.
Unified authentication and authorization
With more data access paths across data engineering, machine learning, data warehouse, and more, manually synchronizing authentication and authorization policies leaves room for human error. Simply locking the cluster behind a firewall or gateway doesn’t solve the issue. Cloudera provides comprehensive perimeter authentication and unified role-based access controls that preserve the agility of multiple entry points under strong security. Cloudera Manager makes it easy to configure industry-standard Kerberos, LDAP/AD, and SAML integrations to fit seamlessly into your existing environments.
End-to-end visibility for security audits and data governance
Once your platform is secure, how can you ensure it remains that way? Cloudera Navigator includes end-to-end data and process auditing, including full visibility into data lineage and usage, to verify authenticity and easily comply with regulatory requirements. Navigator also incorporates a data catalog, which enables easy discovery, labeling, and tracking—critical for tracking personal data for regulations such as GDPR.
Native, comprehensive, transparent protection
Keep information secure at rest and in motion with Cloudera Enterprise, the platform with comprehensive native encryption and key management. Other vendors leave metadata and temporary files, which can contain copies of any data in storage, exposed to malicious actors. Cloudera Navigator Encrypt and Key Trustee protect everything in your cluster so you can meet compliance initiatives and ensure the integrity of your enterprise data.
Meet compliance requirements in your industry
In regulated industries, analytics adoption can be limited by compliance requirements and the need to integrate with other compliance-ready systems. Without the right approach, your enterprise data platform becomes another isolated silo with limited data. Today, Cloudera is the only modern data platform vendor with customers who have achieved a PCI compliance certification for 4+ years and has the unique expertise necessary to help you navigate and pass a compliance audit.
