SmartGuard™ – Dynamic Authorization for Big Data

Dynamic authorization for data in HADOOP systems.

SmartGuardTM for Big Data from Axiomatics is the only Big Data authorization solution to deliver true Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC). It protects data stores against unauthorized access; only allowing users or applications access to the data they are entitled to, in accordance with corporate policies.

The security risk of Big Data stores is emerging as a threat, and Big Data breaches will be bigger than ever – with even more data at stake. Privacy issues are compounded, and legacy access control issues just get bigger:

  • Role explosion with one-dimensional role-based systems
  • Inability to capture complex policy requirements, such as segregation of duty.
  • The need for contextual policies around access control
  • Management complexity of access control

The data-centric solution adds a dynamic layer of security between applications and big data stores. This enables enterprises to use Big Data more securely to analyze data insights and meet business objectives – such as better product performance or improved service offerings.
