Now Available: HDP Advanced Security (via XA Secure)

Central Administration and Coordinated Enforcement of Security Policy

Two months ago, we announced the acquisition of XA Secure. and at that time we stated that the software would be generally available by the end of June. We are happy to announce that we have delivered as promised and the solution is available for download for everyone today. Also, if you are an HDP Enterprise Plus Subscription customer, additional support for these new functions is now provided.

HDP Advanced Security expands on the solid security features already found in HDP to provide central administration and coordinated enforcement of enterprise security policy for a Hadoop cluster. This centralized approach to security management allows you to deploy consistent security policy throughout Hortonworks Data Platform.

For a more complete picture of the security features available in HDP we invite you to review our security labs page

Open Source?

Our team is  busy working on a path forward to extend these new features and integrate them with the rest of HDP. More importantly, we are working to open source the solution.  The first step today was to make it available under a new license and we have begun the work to incubate the feature set within the Apache Software Foundation (ASF).

Hortonworks is uniquely qualified to open source this set of capabilities; staying true to our commitment to 100% open source, developed within an open community, and ensuring our customers can maximize the value of the innovative work being developed within the Apache Hadoop community.
