As a Hortonworks Certified Technology Partner, Dataguise enables organizations across various industries, including financial services, healthcare, retail and government, to leverage the analytical power of Hadoop and still maintain compliance and complete data protection. Dataguise's data protection platform is closely integrated in Hortonworks' data security blueprint, with comprehensive authentication, authorization, and accounting capabilities provided by Apache Knox and XA Secure. This close collaboration enables enterprises to identify and protect sensitive data across all structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data going into Hadoop.
