Securing Data in Hybrid on-premise and Cloud Environments using Apache Ranger

Securing Data in Hybrid on-premise and Cloud Environments using Apache Ranger

Thursday, May 23
2:50 PM - 3:30 PM
Marquis Salon 7

Companies are increasingly moving to the cloud to store and process data. One of the challenges companies have is in securing data across hybrid environments with easy way to centrally manage policies. In this session, we will talk through how companies can use Apache Ranger to protect access to data both in on-premise as well as in cloud environments. We will go into details into the challenges of hybrid environment and how Ranger can solve it. We will also talk through how companies can further enhance the security by leveraging Ranger to anonymize or tokenize data while moving into the cloud and de-anonymize dynamically using Apache Hive, Apache Spark or when accessing data from cloud storage systems. We will also deep dive into the Ranger’s integration with AWS S3, AWS Redshift and other cloud native systems. We will wrap it up with an end to end demo showing how policies can be created in Ranger and used to manage access to data in different systems, anonymize or de-anonymize data and track where data is flowing.
