Data security is often cited as one of the top concerns for enterprises today, and it's an important factor in determining whether to offload application and data management to a SaaS vendor. To assure customer confidence, SaaS providers need comprehensive data encryption and key management solutions that are straightforward, high-performant and easy to deploy and manage. This white paper, published by EMA, outlines key data security considerations for SaaS vendors using traditional MySQL environments as well as big data platforms such as Hadoop, Cassandra, MongoDB and others.
