Gazzang Named “Cool Vendor in Big Data” by Gartner

Gazzang, the big data and cloud security experts, today announced that it has been named a 2014 “Cool Vendor in Big Data” by Gartner, Inc1. Gazzang is one of four innovative vendors cited in the report and the only security vendor named. Gartner subscribers can download the full report at this link.

The enterprise adoption of new big data platforms like Hadoop, MongoDB and Cassandra is driving greater demand for massively scalable, high-performance security solutions that protect data at rest and help meet compliance. Gazzang’s encryption and key management solutions are purpose built for these new data structures, with fast and easy deployment and the ability to scale as organizations grow their big data environments and transition projects from development into production.

“Gazzang allows organizations to enjoy all the performance benefits of big data, while ensuring sensitive information -- including medical records, payment card data, corporate intellectual property and personally identifiable information -- remains secure and confidential,” said Larry Warnock, CEO of Gazzang. “We’re thrilled to be named a Cool Vendor in Big Data by Gartner, a recognition that confirms not only our approach, but the importance of encryption and key management to the overall success of big data projects.”

Gazzang big data and cloud security solutions include:

  • Gazzang zNcrypt™ - High-performance transparent encryption for data at rest. The solution encrypts data at each node and can be deployed easily with common DevOps tools. Gazzang zNcrypt also includes process-based access controls to ensure only authorized system functions can gain access to the encrypted data.
  • Gazzang zTrustee™ - Software-based key manager that enables the data owner to set and enforce a variety of configurable policies for encryption key access. zTrustee can also protect other digital security artifacts including SSH keys, SSL certificates, tokens and passwords, and features a single, unified interface for monitoring the status of these security objects.
  • Gazzang CloudEncrypt™ helps organizations maintain secure, compliant, production-ready environments in Amazon Web Services (AWS). Users get flexible, elastic, pre-packaged security, no matter where their sensitive data moves in the Amazon cloud. Available for Amazon EC2, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Amazon EMR and StarCluster.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
