MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2014) - Zettaset, the leader in Big Data security, today announced a strategic technology partnership with Revelytix, the recognized leader in enterprise information management productivity solutions for data scientists. The partnership enables the two companies to work in tandem to provide their complementary solutions to organizations that wish to extract the most value out of their complete "data lake" store, much of which consists of sensitive data requiring privacy protection.

The concept of the data lake is emerging as a mainstream use of Hadoop. Currently, most companies use very little of their Big Data, while knowing the data they originate or buy could be the source of valuable insights that will create value. Hadoop is ideally suited for storing almost unlimited amounts of unstructured data, but lacks the mature data management tools and security controls necessary for broader enterprise adoption.

Revelytix Loom™ is the essential metadata foundation for Hadoop-based data processing and analytics, enabling users to easily describe and find the right data for their requirements. For analysts, Loom keeps Hadoop data organized for increased productivity and collaboration. Zettaset Orchestrator™ is the first fully-integrated solution for Hadoop security and cluster management, extending security well beyond the limited capabilities of the existing open-source model. Both solutions make extensive use of automated processes to improve enterprise productivity and eliminate unnecessary reliance on professional services.

"Loom makes Hadoop smarter with the kind of data management demanded by Hadoop's complexity of files and schemas," said Mike Lang, Revelytix CEO. "Many of our enterprise customers operate in vertical markets that demand a more mature data security framework for Hadoop, and for these types of customers Zettaset Orchestrator is the ideal complement to Loom." 

"Zettaset Orchestrator has become the gold standard for Hadoop database security and governance in the enterprise," said Jim Vogt, CEO of Zettaset. "We are pleased to partner with Revelytix to deliver complementary commercial software solutions that significantly improve efficiencies and productivity for Hadoop users, and fill critical operational gaps that are not being adequately addressed by open-source approaches." 

Benefits of the Zettaset Orchestrator / Revelytix Loom Partnership

  • Revelytix Loom automatically discovers datasets, generates metadata on datasets, and tracks lineage of operations in Hadoop
  • Zettaset Orchestrator automatically installs and configures enterprise-class security components into a Hadoop cluster, including data-in-motion encryption, data-at-rest encryption, fine-grained role-based access control, Active Directory/LDAP integration, activity monitoring for compliance, and multi-service high-availability with automated failover
  • Loom's Weaver feature facilitates cleaning and munging of any size data sets in HDFS through a highly interactive UI.
  • Revelytix Loom and Zettaset Orchestrator are fully-compatible with leading Hadoop distributions from Cloudera and Hortonworks
  • Revelytix and Zettaset are both Teradata technology partners, providing an exceptional combined Hadoop data management and security solution for Teradata customers

About Revelytix

Revelytix is a commercial software company providing tools for enterprise information management. The founders and engineering team have been together for 14 years, eight at Metamatrix (sold to Red Hat in 2006) and six years at Revelytix. Initially, Revelytix built complex data management software for the Department of Defense. With the emergence of Hadoop, Revelytix has ported some core technology to that platform, in a product called Loom. Loom manages Hadoop data complexity, making data scientists and other Hadoop users more productive. Loom automatically discovers datasets, generates metadata on datasets, and tracks lineage of operations in Hadoop. Loom has a published REST API, and is integrated with R.
