The Hadoop Summit has definitely been worth attending. Along with the SQL on Hadoop focus, security has also been center stage. Cloudera acquired encryption specialist Gazzang which follows an acquisition by HortonWorks of a security company, XA Secure. The traditional data warehousing players like IBM, Oracle, and Teradata all tout their robust security offerings for Hadoop. Then there are over a dozen other companies with security solutions. The common tread for most, is RDBMS type security for Hive. This is just more evidence that the data warehousing is undergoing a huge transformation.
