Privacera Rolls Out PrivaceraCloud – Industry’s First SaaS-Based Data Security and Governance Platform

PrivaceraCloud enables instant, centralized data authorization and auditing for regulatory compliance with GDPR, CCPA, LGPD, and HIPAA

FREMONT, Calif., Jan. 12, 2021 — Privacera, the cloud data governance and security leader founded by the creators of Apache Ranger™, today announced the general availability of PrivaceraCloud, a new SaaS-based data security and governance platform that enables faster cloud onboarding and data access governance for hybrid and multi-cloud data services. Specifically architected for the cloud, the SaaS offering provides immediate value by lowering the cost and management burden of the underlying on-premises infrastructure and by empowering IT teams to focus on value-added tasks. Organizations can deploy PrivaceraCloud in minutes without leveraging container technology, configuring the services, scaling the portal software, or managing operation and uptime of the environment. More information about PrivaceraCloud can be found here.

According to research by McKinsey & Company, “Companies that develop world-class operations in the cloud can reduce IT complexity by 75 percent, enhance their efficiency by up to 20 percent within 12 to 18 months of implementation, and reduce overall cost by 5-10 percent year-over-year.”

PrivaceraCloud empowers companies to achieve precise, consistent, and comprehensive fine-grained access control at row-, column-, file-, or object-levels with a consistent set of policies across multiple cloud services. PrivaceraCloud is ideal for enterprises looking to migrate data and analytical workloads from their on-premises Hadoop-based data lakes or private clouds to public cloud. To balance the demands of data consumers and compliance regulators,

PrivaceraCloud helps IT data teams securely democratize data across their organizations, while complying with industry standards and privacy regulations by automating consistent security and governance controls.

“Our goal has always been to accelerate digital transformation by helping organizations safely migrate data to the cloud, while minimizing compliance risk,” said Balaji Ganesan, Co-founder and CEO at Privacera. “In 2021, the economics of cloud are too attractive and the risks of not migrating are too high for companies to remain tethered to their on-premises IT infrastructure. Enterprises that plan to run their analytical workloads exclusively in the cloud need a data governance platform that is built specifically as a cloud service–which is the impetus behind PrivaceraCloud. Companies can now make this transition easier and compress the time-to-value from their data.”

PrivaceraCloud’s coverage includes major cloud-native services and data warehouses, including: Databricks, Amazon EMR (Hive & Presto), Starburst, Snowflake, Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS), Azure Synapse, Amazon Redshift, Amazon Athena, Amazon S3, and Postgres.

“With PrivaceraCloud, Databricks and Privacera customers can seamlessly implement fine-grained access control for their Databricks workloads on AWS, while ensuring democratization of data across their organizations–a testament to the commitment we’ve made to our joint customers,” said Pankaj Dugar, Product Partnerships at Databricks.
