On January 4, 2023, Privacera, a leader in data security governance based on open standards and started by the people who made Apache RangerTM, announced that it had achieved Data and Analytics Competency status in the Data Governance and Security category from Amazon Web Services (AWS). This designation shows that Privacera has proven expertise or technology that helps customers reach their cloud data and analytics goals.
Gaining the AWS Data and Analytics Competency sets Privacera apart as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that offers specialized software or consulting services to assist enterprises in developing, adopting, and deploying complex projects on AWS. To achieve the designation, AWS Partners must have a deep understanding of AWS and be able to deliver solutions that work well on AWS.
Enterprise data teams are increasingly using AWS to create heterogeneous data meshes and lakes. The Unified Platform for Data Security and Governance from Privacera helps these teams protect sensitive data and ensure privacy while automating manual governance processes to speed up the time to insights.
At the same time, organizations will be able to speed up their cloud migration by using Privacera to securely manage data access policies across various on-premises and cloud data sources from a single governance platform. This will make data migration to AWS easier by increasing automation, making policy management more consistent, and ensuring compliance through an open, consistent, and proven standard.
