DataStax Enterprise 3.0 and above supports the ability to perform data auditing on a database cluster.
One of the new security features added in DataStax Enterprise 3.0 is transparent encryption.
When planning DataStax Enterprise Edition 3.0, we had two primary goals in mind: (1) Supply a more secure big data platform; (2) Provide better enterprise manageability and ease of use.
Security has been a notable weakness in nearly every NoSQL database, a fact that was highlighted in a 2012 InformationWeek special report entitled “Why NoSQL Equals No Security.” Recognizing that a comprehensive security framework is needed for NoSQL, and due to very high demand from both customers and the open source community, we decided to make security one of the key areas of focus for version 3.0 of DataStax Enterprise and Cassandra.
DataStax Enterprise (DSE) 3.0 represents a major step forward in the big data platform we introduced back in October 2011.
