Data access policies need consistent enforcement

Whether building data products or a data mesh, technical teams need to balance their priorities with business value and impact across the organization.

Okera provides users with the confidence of treating data as an asset while protecting data at scale.

With Okera’s multiple enforcement patterns and platform-agnostic, policy-based data access control, policies are enforced consistently across all environments. It provides consistency, clarity, and economy of scale.

Security That Helps You Move Forward. Fast.

Do you recognize these blockers at your company?

The Can:
Over-provisioned and at-risk.

Data scientists can access sensitive data even when there's no legitimate business purpose.

The Cannot:
Locked-out and blind to opportunities.

Business analysts clamor for data, but cannot access data co-mingled with sensitive data.

The Won't:
Stagnant and losing to market innovators.

Companies won't migrate sensitive data workloads to the cloud, worried about compliance with data security and privacy regulations.

If your analytics practice isn’t delivering on expectations, don’t be discouraged!

Data security is the surprising secret to becoming data-driven and innovative.

False Starts. Re-starts. Who has time for that?

Avoid false starts by avoiding these common approaches to data access governance.

Extracting copies of data by:

  • geography
  • project
  • users

and managing access with IAM roles or private keys is not sustainable. This approach introduces complexity and risk, and simply fails to meet demand as your company grows.

Most data platform vendors offer some data access control capabilities. But it’s not the right approach.

These solutions are siloed, inconsistent, and complex.

Why re-create the same access policies in all your platforms, especially when you know they don’t all have the same capabilities? It’s a logistics and compliance nightmare.

We got security approval to use confidential and highly confidential data because of the way we’re governing the data with Okera. 

With that, we can expand the use cases we surface through analytics to give a 360° view of our business that we weren’t able to do before.

Discover & Classify Sensitive Data

“Knowing your data” is a prerequisite for achieving consistent, clear, and scalable data access governance.

Okera provides lightweight data discovery and classification capabilities, or you can configure Okera to integrate with your enterprise-grade data catalog. The choice is yours.

Collaborate and Manage Platform-Agnostic Data Policies

Okera abstracts policies into language that non-technical data stakeholders can understand. As a result, it’s easier for everyone to collaborate and agree on policies.

This means policies — and the data they protect — can be deployed faster and with greater confidence.

Dynamically Enforce Policies

Policies without enforcement are just words on a page.

Okera manages all the heavy lifting behind the scenes.

Multiple enforcement patterns make sure policies are enforced consistently across your cloud data warehouse, data lake, and data lakehouse.

Audit and Analyze Sensitive Data Usage

Audit, security, and compliance teams can use the Okera self-service portal to quickly find who requested sensitive data, when, with what application, and whether the request was denied or approved.

Learn how this frees up the data and IT teams to focus on their core work, accelerates compliance reporting, and can reduce incident response times.
