Privacera, the cloud data governance and security vendor founded by the creators of Apache Ranger, released PrivaceraCloud, a new SaaS-based data security and governance platform designed to enable faster cloud onboarding and data access governance for hybrid and multicloud data services. Architected for the cloud, the SaaS offering reduces the cost and management of the underlying on-premises infrastructure. Organizations may deploy PrivaceraCloud without leveraging container technology, configuring the services, scaling the portal software, or managing operation and uptime of the environment.

PrivaceraCloud is designed 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 designed for enterprises planning to migrate data and analytics 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 is designed to help 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 and Presto), Starburst, Snowflake, Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS), Azure Synapse, Amazon Redshift, Amazon Athena, Amazon S3, and Postgres.
