Skyflow Launches Integration to Build Privacy and Data Protection into the Snowflake Data Cloud

Skyflow | June 17, 2022

Skyflow
Skyflow, the Data Privacy Vault company, announced a new integration with Snowflake, the Data Cloud company, at Snowflake Summit 2022. Now, Snowflake customers can quickly and easily integrate Skyflow to isolate sensitive information being shared in the Snowflake Data Cloud and secure it using Skyflow’s Data Privacy Vault. Customers can still query and share sensitive data while it remains protected using the vault, which insulates the application stack and reduces the overall compliance scope.

What if privacy had an API?

Building data privacy infrastructure from scratch or pulling together piecemeal solutions can take a significant amount of time and resources. Skyflow’s API was built so that companies can be up and running with world-class data privacy infrastructure in hours.

“Companies that depend on data often handle PII, but building infrastructure to protect that sensitive data is too often an afterthought. “With Skyflow and Snowflake, teams can unlock the power of data while reducing the time, money, and resources historically spent on privacy.”

Tarik Dwiek, Head of Technology Alliances at Snowflake

Every company should prioritize privacy as they build to keep sensitive data out of unnecessary workflows and data streams. The risk of a security breach and the cost of breaking customer trust becomes amplified in highly regulated industries, like fintech and digital health. Skyflow radically simplifies how companies manage, access and govern sensitive PII data, and with dedicated fintech and healthtech data vaults, PHI and PCI-regulated data can be protected as well.

Global Data Residency and Data Protection for Customer Data

Both startups and enterprises across verticals can benefit from Skyflow’s scalable and customizable approach to privacy. The zero-trust vaults with a simple and elegant API can be deployed anywhere in the world, allowing developers to quickly build applications and workflows without worrying about data privacy, compliance or residency.

Sensitive information can be stored in a specific geolocation to help teams achieve data residency requirements related to GDPR, DCIA, LGPD, PDPA, and Skyflow’s solution can drastically reduce the amount of time and resources needed to achieve compliance with standards like PCI DSS and HIPAA.

“Skyflow is partnering with Snowflake to simplify how developers and CIOs solve for data protection. This is key in a world where privacy is becoming a top priority for users and regulators globally,” says Anshu Sharma, CEO of Skyflow. “Together, Snowflake and Skyflow can help customers put privacy first so they can focus on their core products.”

About Skyflow
Founded in 2019, Skyflow is a data privacy vault for sensitive data. Our founders wanted to radically transform how businesses handle their users’ financial, healthcare and other personal data -- the data that powers the digital economy. Inspired by the data vaults that leaders like Apple and Netflix built to handle customer data, our vision was to deliver the same kind of data privacy vault as a simple and elegant API, something any developer could easily build into their application, the same way they use Stripe, Twilio, or Okta. Skyflow is based in Palo Alto, California, with offices in Bangalore, India

Tellius Raises $16 Million to Transform Data Analytics with AI-Driven Decision Intelligence

Tellius | October 21, 2022

Tellius, a leading AI-driven decision intelligence platform, today announced a $16 million Series B funding round led by Baird Capital. All of Tellius’ existing investors—Sands Capital Ventures, Grotech Ventures, and Veraz Investments—participated in the round, bringing the company’s total fundraising to $33 million to date. The funding will be used to enhance Tellius’ decision intelligence platform, expand the company’s go-to-market capabilities, and support talent acquisition across sales, marketing, and product engineering functions. As the volume and complexity of business data continues to grow, traditional approaches to analytics have failed to meet the demands of modern insights-driven organizations. Business intelligence dashboards do not answer questions as to why metrics change, and data science teams are spread thin as they attempt to serve diverse needs across the business, keeping AI siloed. As a result, using data to confidently inform timely and precise decisions that enhance sales strategies, reduce costs, and boost operational efficiencies remains challenging. The Tellius decision intelligence platform addresses these challenges by putting greater analytical power directly into the hands of both analysts and business teams to give a complete picture of what’s happening in the business, why metrics are changing, and how to drive business outcomes in granular ways. The company’s unique approach applies analytical and machine learning automation to surface key business drivers hidden across data sources and enhances ease-of-use through a natural language interface. Users can generate advanced insights—which once took data experts hours or days to uncover—in minutes, and without manual analysis or complex coding. "Tellius' differentiated technology platform is well-positioned to continue its rapid growth as decision intelligence becomes more embedded across the analytics function," said Mark Donnelly, Partner with Baird Capital’s Venture Team. "Baird Capital is proud to partner with such a talented and driven management team to help them maintain their leadership position in this emerging category." Fortune 500 companies and organizations across verticals—including CPG, eCommerce, pharmaceutical, banking, financial services, and insurance—rely on Tellius decision intelligence to turn data into actions that power significant operational and financial gains. “Tellius gives our executive and operational teams far greater analytics capabilities and 5-10x faster answers compared to traditional dashboarding and visualization platforms," says Thomas Lembck, CIO of Nabriva. "Their modern analytics platform on top of our cloud data warehouse fuels proactive and agile decision intelligence across our commercial sales, marketing, finance, and human resource functions.” The Series B round comes on the heels of a banner year for Tellius as demand for decision intelligence continues to skyrocket. According to Gartner, a third of large organizations will be using decision intelligence for structured decision-making to improve competitive advantage in the next two years. The company’s momentum is marked by: Recognition as a Visionary in the Gartner® Magic QuadrantTM for Analytics & Business Intelligence Platforms and inclusion as Representative Vendor in the 2022 Gartner Market Guide for Multipersona Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms (DSML) Partnerships with data warehouse vendors like Databricks and vertical solution providers like Indegene that further extend the power of and use case for decision intelligence across the company’s customer base Executive hires, including Hardik Chheda to Chief Product Officer and John Aven to Head of Engineering, who are focused on accelerating how business and analyst teams uncover diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive insights to inform decision-making “Tellius is leading the growing decision intelligence category, in large part due to the unique and powerful capabilities of our platform in making it easier for companies to instill data-driven decision-making across every facet of their operations. “We’re helping companies modernize their data stack by delivering the industry’s most robust analytical solution, which has the flexibility to work with cloud data warehouses and data lakes to ingest data from traditional data sources and deliver faster and better business insights. This recent round of funding from top investors is proof of our vision and ability to execute as more organizations seek strategic advantage and superior business outcomes from data.” Ajay Khanna, Founder and CEO, Tellius About Tellius Tellius is an AI-driven decision intelligence platform that enables anyone to get faster insights from their data. The company helps organizations across industries, including financial services, pharmaceutical and life sciences, retail, healthcare, and high technology, accelerate their journey from data to decisions by augmenting human expertise and curiosity with intelligent automation. The company’s platform combines AI- and ML-driven automation with a search interface for ad hoc exploration, allowing users to ask questions of their business data, analyze billions of records in seconds, and gain comprehensive, automated insights in a single platform. Founded in 2016, Tellius is backed by Baird Capital, Sands Capital Ventures, Grotech Ventures, and Veraz Investments.
