A new article out of the company reports, “MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the industry’s only converged data platform, today announced the immediate availability of the MapR Converged Data Platform with new security, data governance and performance enhancements. The MapR Platform is uniquely architected to converge Hadoop with Spark, web-scale storage, NoSQL, and streaming capabilities into one unified cluster, enabling customers to deploy real-time global data applications with unprecedented scale and flexibility. Available now, the MapR Converged Data Platform gives customers new big data capabilities across MapR Streams, MapR-DB, and MapR-FS. From powerful security and data governance, to optimal Docker support and extreme performance, MapR continues to innovate its platform for today’s business-critical environments.”

The article adds, “Highlights include: (1) File and stream access control expressions (ACEs) simplify the granting of permissions to users and groups across data files and directories using Boolean expressions, making security administration more scalable and manageable. (2) Whole volume ACEs add another level of protection for data files in MapR Volumes, and provides greater multi-tenancy controls to guarantee that data is only available to specific groups. This is especially useful in hosted customer-facing SaaS applications to absolutely ensure that no client can access another customer’s information. (3) Selective auditing provides flexibility to track only the required activities to audit and/or analyze, giving flexibility in auditing while optimizing system performance.”
