Okera and archTIS Partner to Deliver Attribute-Based Access Control for Both Structured and Unstructured Data

Partnership provides end-to-end data security and governance solution for enterprise and government organizations in Australia

SAN FRANCISCO and CANBERRA – October 28, 2021 – Okera, the Universal Data Authorization company, and archTIS, a global provider of innovative solutions for secure collaboration of sensitive information, today announced a strategic partnership to deliver attribute-based access control (ABAC) for structured, semi-structured and unstructured data. The partnership comes on the heels of a recently secured contract with an Australian Government agency for the deployment of Okera’s Universal Data Authorization solution. The alliance enables archTIS to resell and provide the Okera Dynamic Access Platform (ODAP) to support enterprise, government and defense clients in Australia with the ability to securely access structured data.

Okera partners with leading technology vendors and solution providers, like archTIS, to ensure enterprise customers maximize the value of their investment in a modern data stack. The company’s reseller program allows partners to provide software and additional services to deliver increased value.

Okera makes it easy to create and manage data access control policies through the use of data attributes, ensuring policies are linked to business and regulatory context. Attribute-based access control (ABAC) can help dramatically simplify the number of policies required to protect sensitive data.

The archTIS portfolio of award-winning data-centric information security solutions protect the world’s most sensitive unstructured data in enterprise, government, defence, supply chain, and regulated industries through ABAC policies. archTIS provides ABAC protection for unstructured data like files, documents, and images. Together, Okera and archTIS bolster the ability to provide automated policy management for structured and unstructured data.

“This win marks the first for our partnership with Okera. Their complementary platform offers the same policy-based ABAC control over structured data that our products deliver for unstructured data,” said Daniel Lai, archTIS Managing Director. “Together, we can provide an end-to-end solution for granular, zero-trust data access control to ensure all our joint customers’ data – from structured to unstructured – is protected.”

“It has been a wonderful experience to partner with archTIS, as it is rare to find two companies so well aligned in their focus and expertise around data challenges,” said John F. Marchese, Okera’s Vice President of Global Alliances & Partner Sales Channels. “At Okera we believe it is vital for organizations to have a secure data access layer to protect and secure sensitive data while ensuring compliance with various privacy regulations. We also know that archTIS has the deep industry experience and vertical market knowledge that is critical to implement comprehensive solutions for the most challenging needs of customers. Our combined capabilities are extensive.”
