Data volume has exploded. And for enterprises in both the private and public sectors, it is becoming a competitive mandate to leverage the intelligence that can be derived from all this data. Through big data analytics, managers can gain intelligence to better serve their customers, speed innovation, boost operational efficiency, and improve business results. But to ensure leading-edge insights, it is critical that big data applications leverage not only structured relational data but other data sources, such as data from logs, social media interactions, sensors, and other elements that are emerging as part of the “Internet of Things,” as well. This is one of the main reasons enterprises are adopting MongoDB, a general purpose, NoSQL-based document database that is an alternative to legacy relational databases.
MongoDB was designed to ensure data security and offers a number of protection technologies including robust authentication, role-based access control, encrypted communications, and strong auditing capabilities. But, to achieve true security against breaches, it still is critical to protect data-at-rest against privileged users, who have no need to access the data, and attacks that bypass the database and target the underlying servers or physical storage. This data-at-rest includes the organization’s unstructured files and structured databases, query reports, log files and other data sets that might contain sensitive or regulated information.
Vormetric, a MongoDB Advanced Partner, complements MongoDB security by delivering high-performance encryption, easy to use integrated key management, privileged user access control, and generates data access security intelligence with the Vormetric Data Security Platform. Unlike other solutions, this extensible platform is tunable to protect data as granular as specific columns within a relational database or fields within a document in MongoDB. On the other hand, it can protect all the data within a given directory or volume. The platform supports the broadest range of operating systems and environments in the industry and delivers operations efficiencies through high-performance and centralized management with the Vormetric Data Security Manager (DSM).
