Secure and Simplify NoSQL Environments with Identity Management and Auditing

The Big Data market is experiencing exponential growth — one analyst predicts it will grow to over $50 billion by 2020. This growth is fueled by an increase in the number of users accessing applications, their high expectations for instantaneous responses, and the sheer volume of data being stored and accessed by applications. Solutions built on NoSQL technology deliver the high-performance required for real time big data applications.


These applications rely on the storage of sensitive and business critical data such as customer, financial and personally identifiable information (PII), which is highly vulnerable to attack. To protect against these threats, enterprises should implement corporate security and compliance policies with enforced governance. Only users with a business need should have access, least privilege should be enforced, and activity should be audited to satisfy regulatory compliance requirements such as PCI, SOX, HIPAA, NERC/FERC and FISMA.

The Centrify’s solution for NoSQL is an enterprise-grade offering that allows you to leverage your existing Active Directory infrastructure for authentication, while delivering centralized authorization and auditing of access to NoSQL clusters. Centrify also delivers shared account password management and secure remote access for the underlying servers running NoSQL.

 Key Benefits

  • Secure and simplify NoSQL environments without the hassle of deploying and managing new identity infrastructure. Centrify minimizes costs by eliminating the need for parallel identity management infrastructure — that may not be enterprise ready — and allows you to leverage existing Active Directory skill sets.
  • Mitigate threats resulting from identity-related risks and address compliance and audit requirements. NoSQL infrastructures store your organization’s most important data. Centrify controls access, manages privileges, audits activity and associates everything back to an individual, thereby making your data more secure. Centrify delivers cost-effective compliance with reporting on who has access and who did what across your data environment.
  • Increase productivity and security via single sign-on for administrators and users. By extending the power of Active Directory’s Kerberos and LDAP capabilities to your NoSQL clusters, Centrify delivers authentication for administrators and users.
