Hortonworks helps customers maintain the high levels of protection their enterprise data demands by creating centralized security administration and management into the DNA of the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). HDP provides an enterprise-ready data platform with rich competences spanning security, governance, and operations. By executing security at the platform level, Hortonworks ensures that security is consistently administered to any application built on top of the data platform, and makes it easier to build or retire data application without impacting security. To be consistent with its mission to develop, distribute and support 100% open-source Apache Hadoop data platform, Hortonworks immediately incorporated the XA Secure technology into the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), while also converting the commercial solution into an open Apache community project called Apache Ranger.
