In Vertica 7.2.2 we?ve added more security features, including a row-level access policy option. Combined with our previously existing column access policy, Vertica verifies that your data is more secure than ever.
Are you a database administer who manages users and roles in your Vertica database? Do you need to keep track of who has permission to access certain database objects?
If so, here’s a quick guide to queries that help you review the users, roles, privileges, and permissions that you have configured in your database. These queries access one or more Vertica system tables to retrieve this information.
Take advantage of the recent integration of Vertica and SecureData. This integration allows you to keep your data protected when it flows across multiple systems spread across multiple data centers on premise or in the cloud.
Like all Vertica releases, 7.1.2 includes a bunch of new features. One specific feature can help make your HDFS data safer: Kerberos integration for Hadoop. This blog will give you an overview of using Kerberos authentication with Vertica for SQL on Hadoop.
Everyone knows there?s virtually no limit to the amount of data you can store, manage, and query in Vertica. But you may not be aware of how easy it is to control who sees what in your database. In this blog, Alexey Kireyev, the lead security developer for Vertica, explains how you can use the new Access Policies feature to manage your private and sensitive data.
