On February 22, 2023, Privacera, a leading SaaS-based data security and access governance platform, announced its integration with Databricks Unity Catalog. Through this integration, users of both Privacera and Databricks can now facilitate data discovery and access across the Databricks Lakehouse Platform, including seamless migration of existing Privacera policies.
Privacera increases the ability of its users to provide a holistic unified data security platform, protecting all data assets, including modern cloud-native data warehouses, on-premise legacy data sources, modern data lakehouses, and data mesh architectures.
Users can trial these capabilities and spin up Privacera and Databricks together through pre-configured integration settings on Databricks Partner Connect, simplifying the process of testing a secure, well-governed data lakehouse with minimal administrative effort.
The Unity Catalog integration supports table/view level access control, dynamic column-level data masking, dynamic row-level filtering, attribute-based access control, tag-based policies, and file/object level access control.
Privacera enables enterprise data teams to protect sensitive data and promote privacy by securely managing data access policies across multiple on-premise, hybrid, and multi-cloud data sources, automating manual governance processes to reduce time to insights. It is the only open-standards-based data security governance firm, natively integrating with the most popular data and analytic sources. Its scalable and data query performance architecture has made it the solution of choice for many Fortune 500 organizations worldwide.
Privacera's CEO Balaji Ganesan commented, "Securing and governing the modern data lakehouse is a non-trivial challenge for its users and that's why we've invested in extending our modern data security governance capabilities to the Unity Catalog-powered data lakehouse." He further emphasized, "Our users can seamlessly apply the security and governance controls to Unity Catalog and other sources with ease and at scale, and through a proven, open security standard."
