Cloudera Highlights Benefits of Integrated Data Platform for Federal Cybersecurity
Cloudera said that its integrated data platform offers capabilities aligned with the Biden administration’s mandate to strengthen the government’s cybersecurity.
The company launched Cloudera Data Platform in September 2019, touting an enterprise data management solution that offers a range of analytics, edge-computing and artificial intelligence capabilities.
CDP boasts a combination of real-time threat detection capabilities and long-term data storage powered by machine learning, Cloudera said Tuesday.
Carolyn Duby, field chief technology officer and cybersecurity lead at Cloudera, said that data is a core element of the government’s push for cybersecurity modernization.
Government agencies can be more proactive in hunting and mitigating threats if they have all the data they need in one place, Duby added.
Built on open technical standards, CDP is designed to keep agencies from being locked into a single vendor’s platform or from having to deal with proprietary formats and technologies.
Cloudera added that CDP comes with a unified dashboard from which agencies can track the origins and destinations of data.
CDP is also optimized for cybersecurity with its integration of security orchestration, automation and response features, Cloudera said.
On May 12, President Joe Biden issued an executive order directing federal agencies to work with the private sector in modernizing the government’s cybersecurity.
The executive order’s key points include the adoption of the modern zero trust security architecture and improvements to agencies’ ability to detect vulnerabilities.
Biden also called for the breaking down of barriers to threat information sharing, including with cloud service providers who have unique insights into cyber incident information on federal information systems.
