JFrog introduced Project Pyrsia, an open-source software community initiative that utilizes blockchain technology to secure software packages (A.K.A Binaries) from vulnerabilities and malicious code.
DataOps.live and Okera, the Universal Data Authorization company, announced a strategic partnership to increase the speed and security of sensitive data workloads running on the Snowflake Data Cloud Platform.
The integrated solution seamlessly delivers the optimal speed and automation of the DataOps.live solution for Snowflake workloads, while leveraging the Okera Dynamic Access Platform (ODAP) to enhance data governance and security with fine-grained access controls. The joint solution enables organizations standardizing on Snowflake as their primary data cloud platform to dramatically improve security and performance for their data, while also extending the enhanced governance capabilities to multi-cloud environments.
ODAP extends Snowflake's data governance capabilities by enabling policies to be applied and enforced consistently across the entire organization, regardless of where the data resides, both during and after ingestion into Snowflake. DataOps.live ensures that sensitive data tags identified by Snowflake are populated automatically in the data pipeline creation process to further increase speed and efficiency. Together the integrated products enable the deployment of "Set it and Forget it" governance policies that greatly increase organizational efficiency while reducing IT overhead. The joint solution can also be applied to new datasets purchased from the Snowflake Data Marketplace.
"As adoption of Snowflake continues to soar, we are excited to be partnering with a company like DataOps.live that shares our commitment to helping customers improve the performance and security of their data environments," said John F. Marchese, Vice President Global Alliances & Partner Sales Channels at Okera. "Our joint solution will ensure that companies relying on Snowflake enjoy the best of both worlds, the fastest, end-data pipeline automation of DataOps.live, along with the ability to enhance or extend Snowflake's data tagging and access control with Okera integration."
As members of Snowflake's Data Governance Accelerated Program, DataOps.live and Okera leverage Snowflake's advanced global data governance capabilities, including object tagging and access history, to increase the value of Snowflake to the enterprise. Both companies will offer the integrated solution to new and existing customers. Okera will also provide a bundled, self-service trial version of Okera for Snowflake to all DataOps.live customers.
"Data governance and security is critical for every enterprise company using Snowflake. But applying and maintaining sensitive data tags against schemas, tables, views, and attributes is often a painful manual process for data stewards. DataOps.live enables sensitive data tags to be applied as part of each pipeline to assure their correctness after each and every pipeline run. Okera can then ensure the protection of that sensitive data with its powerful policy enforcement capabilities," said Justin Mullen, CEO of DataOps.live. "Thanks to our participation in Snowflake's Data Governance Accelerated Program, Snowflake customers can be sure that our joint solution with Okera will work seamlessly and provide the enhanced capabilities and genuine value they deserve."
