Okera Spotlight for AWS
Okera Spotlight solves some of the biggest challenges with managing an AWS data lake by providing visibility into data usage and access patterns.
Data lake owners are constantly looking to understand the usage of the lake, while data stewards need to know their sensitive data exposure in order to comply with emerging data privacy regulations. Okera Spotlight helps solve both of these problems by automatically discovering sensitive data and capturing all activity in real-time across all analytics tools. It provides usage information and important metrics such as top users and top applications for live, holistic insight into data lake activity.
Okera Spotlight Platform
Out of the Box Reporting
A number of reports are built into the Web UI to answer common data access and usage questions, such as:
- What data is being accessed in the lake, especially sensitive data?
- Which users have accessed sensitive data?
- Which tools are accessing the sensitive data and how much did they read?
The enriched audit activity produced by Okera Spotlight can also be queried and analyzed using any business analytics tool, like Tableau or Looker.
Understand Sensitive Data Usage
Okera Spotlight crawls the data lake and automatically detects the sensitive data. The technical metadata catalog can be populated by Spotlight’s built-in crawlers, or an external catalog such as AWS Glue. Users can also create their own tags based on relevant data elements.
