Integrated solution will allow data owners to automatically enforce data governance and security policies across all analytics tools
FREMONT, CA: Okera, which enables companies to secure data access, announced integration with the Collibra Data Intelligence Platform. The integration above will allow the data owners and stewards to enable classification attributes defined in Collibra to automatically leverage, create, and enforce fine-grained data access control (FGAC) policies via Okera. This integration makes it easier and faster to ensure compliance with evolving privacy regulations, including GDPR and CCPA.
Collibra’s cloud-based platform interlinks IT and business, empowering digital enterprises to design a data-driven culture and convert data into a strategic, competitive asset. Okera’s secure data access platform unlocks the full potential of a company’s data, allowing safe, responsible self-service analytics at the company scale through dynamic enforcement of data access policies. The integrated solution enhances compliance, saves time, minimizes repetitive work, and increases business efficiencies by:
• Automating Policy Enforcement - Policies can be defined in Okera by leveraging the classification of attributes from Collibra. These policies will be automatically enforced at query time, allowing the enterprise to leverage their pre-existing workflows and features. This also saves the governance team members and data stewards from doing repetitive work.
• Responsiveness to Regulatory Change - Because policy enforcement occurs dynamically within Okera, any policy changes made in Collibra, due to changes in regulations or internal governance standards are transparently enforced by Okera the next time an analyst runs a query.
• Creating a Unified Metadata Layer - Collibra is a rich source of manually curated business metadata. At the same time, Okera solely works on technical metadata with automatic discovery and sensitive data tagging. With the integration, the enterprises obtain a single source of truth in Collibra for all kinds of metadata, whether the data resides in legacy systems or the cloud.
• Information Access with Speed and Scale - Okera platform’s vision is to enable self-service analytics with responsible data access and governance across distributed environments—giving users the ability to explore their data’s potential like never before at the last mile where it counts!
