Apache Cassandra Encryption Solutions

Before an enterprise can mine and analyze the massive volumes of data they’re collecting, they first need to organize it without breaking the bank.If they do this successfully, they will be well prepared to make new, valuable insights to propel their operations.

Built for the big data era, Apache Cassandra is a breed of NoSQL database designed that can efficiently and reliably handle large data volumes.

Apache Cassandra security from Gemalto

These data volumes contain significant amounts of sensitive data that needs to be secured for organizations to be safe and compliant. Fortunately, Gemalto offers solutions to meet these challenges.

Protect your files, folders and shares transparently

File Encryption Icon

SafeNet ProtectFile is a file-level encryption solution that seamlessly and transparently protects sensitive file data in Apache Cassandra databases. Operating at the kernel level, users can define with file, folder or network share paths require encryption; this approach means no changes are needed to operations or the datacenter's architecture.

And, because an agent lives on each server, policy-based access controls live locally so data stays safe even if connection to the encryption key manager is disrupted.

With SafeNet ProtectFile, organizations have a versatile and easy to use encryption solution to solve their security and compliance needs.

Format-preserving tokenization for Apache Cassandra

Tokenization Icon

SafeNet Tokenization protects high value information in Apache Cassandra databases by replacing it with a surrogate value or "token" without changing the database table or the file layout.

Systems protected with tokenization are removed from the audit scope of certain regulations such as PCI DSS.

And, since SafeNet Tokenization is integrated into the application layer, no architectural changes are required to Apache Cassandra.
