Hortonworks and their new security team explain the current status and their plans for a “holistic and comprehensive” security solution for Hadoop:
A comprehensive security approach means that irrespective of how the data is
stored and accessed, there should be an integrated framework for securing
data. Enterprises may adopt any use case (batch, real time, interactive),
but data should be secured through the same standards, and security should
be administered centrally and in one place.

✚ It’s safe to assume this post was meant to introduce Hortonwork’s position to Hadoop security as compared to Cloudera’s (and their collaboration on security aspects with Intel):
