Dremio | February 01, 2023
On January 31, 2023, Dremio, the leading simple and open data lakehouse, and Privacera, the only open-standards-based data governance and security solution provider, announced their latest integration, which expands advanced data governance and security capabilities for customers building modern data applications on top of data lakehouses.
As data lakehouses become more popular, it is becoming increasingly essential to manage and organize safe data access while also adhering to complicated regulatory regulations across all data assets. The new integration now allows Joint clients to expedite secure and governed analytics by decreasing manual processes while automating stringent compliance for contemporary data cooperation, which is especially important in highly regulated industries like financial services.
The enhanced integration proffers joint clients with the following capabilities:
Ensuring scalability and performance
By pushing down policies written in Privacera into Dremio, the native integration allows quick query performance and scalability.
Enhanced data security and governance capabilities
The connector enables enterprises to implement attribute-based access control (ABAC), discovery for tagging and data classification, data encryption, row-level filtering and masking, canned reports and centralized auditing.
Applying Consistent policy administration across Dremio and the majority of hybrid and multi-cloud data sources
Customers can now establish and enforce data access policies and classifications once and then deploy them anywhere.
Founded in 2015, Dremio is a simple, open data lakehouse that offers self-service analytics, data warehouse capability, and data lake flexibility across all data. It boosts agility with a novel data-as-code approach that enables Git-style data experimentation, version control, and governance. In addition, it removes data silos by allowing searches across data lakes, databases, and data warehouses, as well as easing ingestion into the lakehouse. Dremio is employed by hundreds of enterprises, including three of the Fortune 500, to offer mission-critical BI on the data lake. The company is the inventor of Apache Arrow and is on a quest to redefine SQL for data lakes and meet clients where they are on their cloud journey.
Founded in 2016, Privacera is the first company to offer a SaaS-based data governance and security solution that unifies privacy and compliance across various cloud services such as Azure, AWS, Databricks, GCP, Starburst and Snowflake. It assists businesses in making efficient and responsible use of data by guiding them through their data journey. Privacera, founded by the creators of Apache Ranger™ and Apache Atlas™, is often referred to as "Apache Ranger in the Cloud." Fortune 500 customers in the insurance, finance, life sciences, media, retail, and consumer industries, as well as government agencies, use the Privacera platform to mask sensitive data, automate sensitive data discovery, and manage high-fidelity policies at petabyte scale on-premises and in the cloud.

IronNet | February 13, 2023
IronNet, Inc. (IronNet), a pioneer in transforming cybersecurity through collective defense℠, recently announced the execution of an initial federal contract to deliver cybersecurity services to the United States Navy's Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), the largest of the Navy's five "systems commands." The agreement was entered following the successful completion of a pilot program that provided NAVSEA with the IronNet Collective Defense Platform.
As nation-state cyber threats against the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) program of the Department of Defense (DoD) continue to increase, IronNet strengthens the DIB's cybersecurity prevention and protection of third-party and supply chain cyber risk. This support corresponds with the DoD's initiatives to encourage DIB entities to provide information and share anonymized cyber threat indicators that they deem helpful for notifying the government and others in order to counter threat actor activities more effectively. The IronNet Collective Defense Platform will allow each contractor in the NAVSEA DIB program to boost its network threat visibility while also integrating them in real-time through a private IronNet Collective Defense Community for NAVSEA.
Through linked alerts, automated triage, and extended hunt assistance, the IronNet Collective Defense Platform acts as an early warning system for all participating corporations and organizations, increasing network security. In addition, IronNet's platform was recently updated to increase alert fidelity and analyst workflow by strengthening embedded risk scoring for more accessible alert prioritizing. These improvements result in much lower alert loads, false positives, and a shorter time to investigate.
NAVSEA will have enhanced visibility of the current threat landscape, with situational context, thanks to the IronNet Collective Defense Platform, and will be able to increase the effectiveness of existing defenses and cybersecurity solutions used by its DIB contractors. Continuous monitoring of known and undiscovered threats contributes to meeting Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) parameters.
The IronNet Collective Defense Platform offers timely actionable, and relevant cyber attack intelligence earlier in case of an incursion before a threat can have a substantial impact, allowing DIB firms and the Navy to defend US Naval intellectual property better.
IronNet, founded in 2014, is a leading cybersecurity company transforming how businesses, industries, and governments safeguard their networks. It leverages the abilities of its top-tier cybersecurity operators' real-world, public and private sector, offensive and defensive cyber expertise and integrates their deep tradecraft knowledge into its industry-leading solutions to address the most complex cyber challenges affecting business today. The company's solutions use behavioral analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to assist private and public companies in discovering unexpected risks across critical infrastructure.
