Privacera, a SaaS-based data security and governance platform provider founded by the creators of Apache Ranger, has announced the release of Privacera Platform 6.3 and PrivaceraCloud 4.3 to offer complete data governance automation and expanded support across the cloud partner ecosystem.
The new releases expand the Privacera Access Governance Platform’s ability to secure a diverse and increasing number of data sources and analytical workloads by public and third-party offered cloud service providers, such as Google Cloud’s BigQuery, Snowflake, AWS, and Starburst.
“Privacera pioneered the industry’s first SaaS-based data governance and security solution that integrates privacy and compliance across multiple cloud services,” said Privacera CEO Balaji Ganesan. “Our latest releases not only help organizations use data effectively and responsibly, but also accelerate digital transformation by helping organizations safely migrate data to the cloud, while minimizing risk compliance. By expanding the scope of our platforms, we’re even better equipped to guide organizations along their data journeys.”
According to the company, a key milestone with this new release is that Privacera now brings comprehensive data access and security governance solution to Google BigQuery. With this release, Privacera provides fine-access control and data masking capabilities, as well as the ability to discover and tag sensitive data to help manage data access to data stored and processed in BigQuery.
Privacera has also enhanced access control by extending Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) across all supported data and analytical sources. ABAC simplifies and automates data access governance and is particularly beneficial when combined with Privacera’s Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and tag-based access control. Privacera’s ABAC leverages user attributes, such as region, title, and department when creating data access policies, thus allowing data access based on those attributes. Integration with access management solutions, such as Okta, further automates the data access governance process.
The new release also further expands support for Starburst Enterprise by adding encryption to accelerate and improve secure data sharing by automatically encrypting and decrypting data for authorized users or applications when they access it. As a result, data science and analytics teams can securely utilize more data, build, and refine predictive and machine learning models, and increase their accuracy, utilizing the full array of features in their organization’s data.
