Implement a custom security and compliance plan

Hadoop provides a mechanism for storing vast amounts of data that enable new workloads and user interactions. Securing this data is paramount for success in an enterprise environment. As every implementation is different, every use case requires a specific security program that ensures administrative governance and regulatory compliance. Cloudera will customize a security architecture to meet industry-specific requirements and enable strong authentication, authorization, data access, audit, and data governance for your Big Data solution.
