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.
