It takes only a few steps to set up a Cyral sidecar to monitor and protect your repositories. Once the sidecar is in place, you can configure SSO authentication, offer just-in-time access to your data users, and easily track which users and services are interacting with your data repositories.
This quickstart guide will show you how to track a data repository using Cyral, connect to it, and monitor data activity in a Kibana dashboard. Follow these steps:
