Data Security for Hadoop Environments

Despite the growing use of the cloud, large organizations are still heavily leveraging large on-premises Hadoop environments. It’s still vital, then, to recognize the importance of securing on-premises Hadoop environments infrastructure. In a 2020 survey, BARC found that nearly half of Hadoop users were not using any tools for data governance or security.

Hadoop is a collection of open-source projects, sub-projects, and vendor-developed extensions that work together to enable data-centric applications.
