Okera, a universal data authorization specialist, has released OkeraEnsemble, a comprehensive file control solution that extends secure data access management for tabular data and multistructured files within the same policy with native scaling on Amazon EMR. With OkeraEnsemble, analysts/engineers and business/low-code data users have swift access to tabular and file-based data at massive scale using a single coherent collaborative platform. OkeraEnsemble protects sensitive data and ensures privacy by managing data access without having to use different tools for both files and tables.

OkeraEnsemble enables users to define attribute-based access control within the Okera Dynamic Access Platform through a single, unified source and access unstructured data -- such as documents, images, video, and audio files stored as files on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). Unlike traditional offerings, OkeraEnsemble on Okera nScale with Amazon EMR -- currently in beta with select customers -- delivers the full spectrum of data access management to ensure that data is fully protected, allowing users to leverage the rich types of data needed for analytics and data science use cases while reducing the work typically required to transform the data to a structured format.

Highlights and unique features of OkeraEnsemble include:

  • Progressive attribute-based access control (ABAC): Provides better data security and faster compliance, creates massive economies of scale, and ensures consistency in policy enforcement. Allows users to classify files and folders, leverage tags in file access controls, and utilize advanced Okera functionality, such as applying user attributes or defining time-bound conditions for permissions. Configurations can be made using an easy-to-use, point-and-click user interface or by leveraging Okera APIs.
  • Infinite nScale: Handles enormous amounts of users and supports large volumes of data access requests via Okera’s pattern for tabular data access enforcement. Allows organizations to fully leverage their existing computing infrastructure and achieve elasticity at no additional cost for access control of both tabular data and file data while ensuring consistent policy enforcement and auditing.
