Universal
Policy Builder

Okera’s universal policy builder allows data stewards to create and manage fine-grained data access policies. Policies are 100% focused on serving the business need for restricting, masking, or anonymizing sensitive and private data. Policies are authored independently of the calling application or the target data platform.

Dynamic Policy Enforcement

Okera universal policies are enforced dynamically, transparently and consistently across all analytics tools at runtime, eliminating rogue datasets and complex enforcement infrastructure. The Okera Policy Engine will always choose the best enforcement pattern, taking into account the context of the user, the data being requested, and the access control capabilities of the given tool or framework.

Centralized Auditing & Reporting

Okera captures every action on both data and metadata – from queries to changes in policy – for an audit log that remains consistent across every tool accessing the data lake. A number of built-in reports answer important questions about who is using data and for what purposes, with the ability to drill down for precise, actionable details about specific users.

Analytics & Data Science

Okera supports the full range of analytics and machine learning tools in the modern data platform, with access policies defined in one place and then enforced consistently.

External Systems

Okera was designed to fully integrate within your enterprise environment, as well as leverage attributes from external systems – user attributes from the identity management system, curated business metadata from an enterprise data catalog – for policy enforcement. The Okera audit log can also be integrated with SIEM tools for real-time systems monitoring and to create alerts in the case of a data breach.
