Arcadia Data has introduced what it describes as a first-of-its-kind unified security and management solution for business intelligence (BI) that is native on Hadoop.

The San Mateo, CA-based firm is provider of the industry's only unified visual analytics and BI platform for big data. Arcadia’s new security architecture is designed to extend selective control of granular data access from the platform straight through to the UI, for business users and not just for data scientists.

Announced during the Strata & Hadoop World conference in San Jose, CA, last week, the new release is aimed at improving big data utilization without sacrificing security and control, and overcoming  fragmentation inherent to BI technologies outside Hadoop; and certified integration with Cloudera Manager streamlines big data deployment and management.

“Arcadia delivers security on data directly in Hadoop clusters, without sacrificing granular access control. Arcadia overcomes the complexities of extraction, data movement and fragmented permission models inherent to BI/analytics architectures that run from outside Hadoop,” the firm noted in its announcement.

Featuring direct integration with leading Hadoop-based authorization projects, it lets “security-conscious enterprises, in sectors such as healthcare and finance, build broadly accessible data visualizations and still target specific role-based access policies to individual rows and columns,” the firm explained.

This release follows Arcadia Data's launch of Arcadia Enterprise, a full-scale visual analytics and BI solution that runs natively in Hadoop.
