According to a recent press release, “Okera today released the latest update to the Okera Active Data Access Platform with version 1.2. Among the significant enhancements, the update includes interactive dashboards for governance and usage insight, comprehensive support for relational databases such as Snowflake and Redshift, and dynamic and scalable access control policies, as well as fine-grained administrative privileges that enable a distributed stewardship model. Okera addresses the growing challenge in data management across heterogeneous compute, data stores, and formats by giving data consumers, owners, and stewards a unified platform for unlocking the value of data without compromising on governance or compliance.”
The release continues, “The Okera Active Data Access Platform 1.2 offers organizations three key things: ability to secure and govern data from relational databases, enhanced security and governance controls to enable flexible and scalable stewardship models, and greater visibility into data usage with new auditing and reporting through interactive dashboards. The rich audit capabilities enable data administrators to better understand the usage patterns at a cumulative level to aid resource planning as well as adhere to compliance initiatives. ‘It’s surprising how many organizations lack the ability to secure, govern and get visibility into data usage. They lack controls around how data is used and visibility into what is actually happening. Most organizations are flying in the dark,’ said Amandeep Khurana, Okera CEO and co-founder. ‘We’re offering a flexible way to secure and a faster and easier way to gain visibility and transparency into data usage’.”
