St. John's, Canada (PRWEB) November 14, 2014

Camouflage Software Inc., a leading provider of intelligent data masking solutions, today announced the release and expansion of its Camouflage Enterpriseā„¢ platform to support big data masking for Hadoop HDFS.

"There is an increasing demand among our clients to quickly process, analyze and store vast amounts and types of data in order to stay competitive, yet the need for a solid data security strategy remains the same," said Camouflage President and CEO, Kevin Duggan. "Camouflage's latest release marks a substantial advance in our strategic vision by supporting data volume, variety, and velocity challenges characterized by big data, and are a reflection of our company's commitment to empowering customers in an ever-changing and increasingly complex data environment."

Big data masking support on Hadoop leverages the strengths of both the Hadoop and Camouflage platforms, allowing customers to mask at the scale of Hadoop while taking advantage of the consistency and sophistication of Camouflage masking. Native integration with Hadoop provides direct map/reduce execution and visibility of masking jobs from directly within the Hadoop environment. Stored data is masked consistently with all other data sources so that the masked Hadoop environment stays in sync with other masked data sources.

The latest release of Enterprise also introduces a high-performance option that dramatically expedites relational data masking projects, achieving performance gains 15-80 times faster than previous iterations. Furthermore, performance optimizations are automatically and intelligently applied, maximizing throughput without the need for configuration changes, resulting in superior ease-of-use and significantly reduced masking refresh windows.
