Big Data Encryption

Big data collects and analyzes large amounts of data from heterogeneous sources to discover unprecedented new knowledge and understanding of scientific and business scenarios. Aiming to gain greater insight into patterns not generally discernible from smaller data sets, big data business intelligence enables visibility into associations and trends that otherwise go unnoticed.

However, big data exposes the enterprise to numerous data security threats. nCipher can help you deploy big data with confidence and safely take full advantage of its benefits.


  • Protecting Private and Sensitive Information

    Source data used for mining and knowledge discovery typically includes private and sensitive information. The process of gathering data from multiple sources increases exposure.

  • Mitigating Risks of Attacks

    Co-location services that leverage processing big data resources can be vulnerable. At-rest analytics and business intelligence represent valuable targets for attackers.

  • Managing Keys

    Existing big data security solutions typically use fragmented cryptographic key management approaches.


  • Secure Big Data Encryption

    nCipher HSMs provide a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified boundary to protect your sensitive big data encryption keys.

  • Improved Processing

    nCipher HSMs can offload cryptographic processing to deliver low latency, hardware-accelerated encryption.


  • Robust Security

    Make the most of big data analytics with confidence that the data you collect and mine is protected. Take advantage of cryptographic key management best practices to mitigate data exposure risks.

  • Improved Compliance

    Facilitate your auditing and compliance with government and industry regulations such as PCI DSS. Apply consistent key management best practices across big data while integrating with existing enterprise data security applications.

  • High Performance

    Prepare for the future with a scalable security approach and industry-standard interoperable key management solutions.
