TrustLogix Data Access and Observability Platform Simplifies Securing Data in Snowflake Data Cloud
TrustLogix team has worked closely with the Snowflake team for this integration architecture. We’d like to acknowledge Paul Gancz, Partner Solutions Architect at Snowflake, for his valuable contributions to this blog.
As the speed at which data is generated continues to increase, businesses rely on multiple data platforms to process, store, and analyze data. This explosion of data leads to siloed data security and operations, which in turn is creating a nightmare for data owners, data security operations, and governance teams. At TrustLogix, we believe that securing data at the source will empower business users and organizations with greater control over their data, and deliver actionable insights while streamlining data security and privacy operations. As a Snowflake Data Cloud partner, the TrustLogix platform strategy is to lead with data usage monitoring, identify security blind spots, and then enable data teams with access control policies to secure data within Snowflake, data pipelines, data lakes, and BI analytics platforms.
Given the ease of adding data to the Snowflake Data Cloud, and the desire to make that data available to as many users in an organization as possible, securing the data through standard policies and controls is obviously important, and is a key piece of the TrustLogix solution. Equally important is the need to identify and control attempts to access data in ways that, while technically allowed, could potentially violate security policies. The combination of policy definition and enforcement, along with monitoring and automated detection of improper data access, provides the security and privacy controls that organizations require.
TrustLogix’ Monitoring & Access Service for Snowflake uses a patent pending cloud-native technology, called a Trustlet, to monitor and secure data in the Snowflake data cloud. With this solution, data engineers, security teams, and governance teams can monitor and secure access to data. The TrustLogix solution provides the following key capabilities:
- Observe and learn any mis-use of data
- Automate enforcement of granular access controls
- Cloud-native Trustlet architecture
