When businesses become more reliant on digital transformation, big data has emerged as a key engine of business growth. Now the data is a valuable commodity, it is still vulnerable to a variety of threats. In recent years, cyber security accidents such as consumer privacy violations, network attacks to enterprise environments and data, and sabotage of key data have all hit the headlines. Both of these issues pose a threat to businesses' big data security capability. Completely managed big data systems with sound built-in security management solutions can greatly boost organizations' security management capabilities as big data platforms expand based on cloud-based service delivery models.
MaxCompute, Alibaba Cloud's SaaS-mode cloud data warehousing solution, has received a major update to its enterprise-level security features. Real-time audit logs, fine-grained authentication, data masking, disk encryption (BYOK), continuous backup and restore, and cross-region disaster recovery and backup are among the latest capabilities. MaxCompute provides good built-in security monitoring features as a professionally managed big data platform. This update helps organizations to secure their data and resources in the cloud in a more robust and fine-grained way, greatly enhancing their security management capability.
In this article, we'll talk about the security capability upgrade of the MaxCompute platform and discuss how it can benefit businesses.
MaxCompute's security capability upgrade is aimed at building a comprehensive, multi-level security management solution for continuous protection of cloud data and services. Its new features include:
As a cloud-native, fully managed enterprise-level data warehousing service, MaxCompute is built on Alibaba Cloud's large-scale computing and storage resources and adopts a serverless architecture. It provides more than 20 security features at three levels: the underlying level which comprises the infrastructure, data centers, networks, and power supply, the intermediate level which comprises platform security capabilities, and the upper level which comprises user permission management and privacy protection. Supporting both open-source big data and database management security capabilities, MaxCompute provides continuous SaaS-based cloud data protection for cloud enterprises.
Compared with enterprise-developed big data platforms, MaxCompute has sound built-in security management capabilities that are available in an out-of-the-box manner, allowing you to avoid complicated integration and secondary development.
There are new computational power methods available. Subscription-based and on-demand resource allocation was merged through the incorporation of various computing services. As a result, you can boost cost-effectiveness in real-world situations where you could cope with increases in computing power demand as well as daily business. For situations such as experiments and non-urgent work, preemptible computational resources are available. As opposed to the subscription fee, you can save 74% on your computing power with this approach. Data encryption, continuous backup and restore, real-time audit logging, and cross-region disaster recovery are among the new security features. These capabilities can effectively improve the security performance of MaxCompute.
As an asset, our data is faced with a variety of risks. As a cloud-based enterprise data warehouse, MaxCompute provides more than 20 security capabilities at three layers. The underlying layer is the security of infrastructures, such as the security of data centers, networks, and power supplies. The middle layer is the security of platform capabilities. The top layer is the security of access control and privacy protection.
With these newly released security features, we have further enhanced the security capabilities of MaxCompute to an industry-leading level.
MaxCompute (previously known as ODPS) is a general purpose, fully managed, multi-tenancy data processing platform for large-scale data warehousing. MaxCompute supports various data importing solutions and distributed computing models, enabling users to effectively query massive datasets, reduce production costs, and ensure data security.
This topic is intended for all owners and administrators of MaxCompute projects, and users who are interested in the MaxCompute multi-tenant data security system.
This topic describes the main points of a data security self-check and related adjustment points. It provides you with the idea of data security adjustment.
