Data Access Governance
Secure Data Access Governance for Databases and
Cyral’s data access governance provides centralized, secure access management and real-time monitoring for structured and semi-structured data that is found in SQL and NoSQL databases and data lakes.
Know who has access to what data, how data is classified and provide continuous monitoring for auditing.
Why is Data Access Governance Important?
According to Gartner
“Data Access Governance (DAG) solutions have now become critical as they provide data access assessment, management and real-time monitoring for the unstructured and semi-structured data”. The report further states that, “DAG solutions help to provide the right level of access for users/groups. DAG also helps customers migrate some of their data repositories from on-premises to the public cloud by classifying data and cleaning up permissions beforehand.”
