REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2016) - BlueTalon, a leading provider of data-centric security for Hadoop, SQL and big data environments, today announced it has been selected as a finalist for the 12th Annual 2016 Global Excellence Awards as the Start Up of the Year. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced; groundbreaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

"It's an honor to have BlueTalon recognized as one of the best Start Up of the year. We are seeing our BlueTalon Data-Centric Security platform being adopted by many large corporations around the country," said Eric Tilenius, CEO of BlueTalon. "As big data grows exponentially across many different environments including Hadoop and SQL, the need to have a single security solution has become critical. BlueTalon gives users access they need but not a byte more."

In today's corporate environment it is still too easy for hackers to bypass perimeter defenses and steal valid user credentials that give them access to millions of records. Data-centric security focuses on securing the data itself and is a proven line of defense against massive data breaches. With data-centric security enterprises can pursue big data projects with the peace of mind that data is secure and regulation requirements are met; users get access to the data they need to do their job; security staff can manage security policies centrally and enforce consistent policies across Hadoop, SQL and other repositories, on premise and in the cloud.

Winners of the award will be honored in San Francisco on February 29, 2016 during the annual awards dinner and presentation.
