Policy Definition

Okera provides a self-service experience for data stewards to create and manage fine-grained data access control policies.

Create and Manage Data Access Policies From an Intuitive UI

Data stewards, or those who understand the data, can now author access policies without writing a line of code. Create and manage fine-grained data access control policies, including row-level filtering and sophisticated de-identification, from Okera’s simple point-and-click user interface.

Attribute-based access control (ABAC) for scale

Okera makes it easy to create and manage data access control policies through tags, ensuring that policies are linked to business and regulatory context. ABAC can simplify the amount of policies required to protect sensitive data and, with tags applied automatically when data is registered in Okera, creates an effectively automated policy management. The platform does also allow for role-based access control (RBAC) for specificity and exceptions.

Fine-Grained Access Control

Define and enforce fine-grained data access control policies for both structured and unstructured data from a single platform. Access privileges and restrictions can be applied on many levels of granularity—file, column, row, and even at cell-level.

Policy Enforcement

Okera applies fine-grained data access control policies dynamically and consistently across all analytic tools.

Enforce Data Access Control Policies Dynamically at Scale

Eliminate the need to create multiple copies of a single dataset in order to control access for different use cases. With Okera, data access control policies are applied dynamically at run-time, so each user will only see the data they are authorized to view, ensuring secure data access.

Integrate With Directory and Authentication Services

The Okera platform integrates with LDAP directory and authentication services, such as Microsoft Active Directory or Okta, so data access control policies associated with certain roles can then be granted to predefined groups within the enterprise. This allows for more efficiency in provisioning data access to individual users.

Architected for the Enterprise Data Platform

Okera was designed from the ground up for maximum flexibility, scalability, and interoperability, able to support the tools of today and any that may be considered in the future. The platform is cloud-native with support for hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure, and high-performing workloads with multiple concurrent users.

Data Discovery

Okera’s data discovery and catalog capabilities give you full and automatic visibility into what data you have and how much of it is sensitive.

Automate Data Discovery and Classification

Okera’s crawler automatically identifies and tags sensitive data. The platform comes with a set of out-of-the-box, ML-driven rules to classify sensitive values (such as social security number and email address), but users can also create their own custom rules.

Register Data Across Multiple Sources for Full Visibility

Modern data platforms contain data from many sources and in many formats. Okera’s automated schema registration makes life easier for data producers to onboard datasets, and expedites data discovery for analysts and data scientists across the enterprise.

Leverage Business Context for Enforcement

The Okera platform can leverage the rich business context and tags from an enterprise data catalog, such as Collibra, in order to define data access control policies and enforce them at scale. Additionally, Okera’s technical metadata registry will give the governance team better insight into what data they actually have in their platform.
