Gazzang Named to CRN 2014 “Big Data 100” List

Gazzang, the big data and cloud security experts, today announced that it was named to UBM Tech Channel’s CRN 2014 Big Data 100 list. The honor recognizes technology vendors that have demonstrated an ability to innovate in bringing to market products and services that help business work with big data.

The Big Data 100 list covers three categories: business analytics; data management; infrastructure, tools and services. Vendors on this list are industry stalwarts leveraging their products and services to meet the Big Data challenge, as well as a wave of startups developing a new generation of products to help businesses address their Big Data needs. Gazzang was honored in the Big Data infrastructure, tools and services category.

Since its launch in 2010, Gazzang has changed the way organizations secure big data, providing enterprise-class transparent data encryption and key management solutions that protect against unauthorized access or malicious attack, help maintain regulatory compliance and reduce risk, and ensure IT vendors are meeting service level agreements. In April of this year, Gazzang was named a “Cool Vendor in Big Data” by Gartner.

“Channel partners are deluged with choices when it comes to selecting the technology they use as building blocks for big data solutions, making it critical to have a trusted resource that can be used to identify the most cutting-edge technologies and tools available,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Being a part of the CRN 2014 Big Data 100 is an industrywide recognition of these vendors’ dedication and innovation to meeting the big data challenge.”

“As businesses become more reliant on data and big data platforms as a way to gain a competitive advantage, the need to protect sensitive information in Hadoop and NoSQL increases almost exponentially,” said Larry Warnock, CEO of Gazzang. “By encrypting data at rest and preventing unauthorized access to the encryption keys, we’re giving enterprises around the world the confidence that their most valuable business assets are secure, even in today’s next-generation database environments.”
