Datameer Spotlight provides a deep suite of security and governance features and is intentionally designed NOT to replicate already-in-place governance mechanisms but instead work with these controls. These capabilities are well matured from Datameer’s ten years of experience working with large enterprises in highly regulated industries requiring deep security and governance.
Hybrid environments can create security and governance gaps due to capability mismatches between on-premises enterprise and cloud platforms. Spotlight bridges your cloud and on-premises data worlds to enable consistency across your hybrid landscape.
Spotlight contributes to your security needs with a virtual query architecture that keeps data and policies in place within its source, eliminating the need to replicate either of these and create potential governance holes. Spotlight also integrates with enterprise and cloud security, offers asset-level controls and encryption on the wire and at-rest.
From a governance standpoint, Spotlight provides many key capabilities:
- It maintains multiple forms of metadata both technical and business level, and full lineage on assets helping data stewards track what makes up an asset.
- It can apply properties on data assets ranging from system-level ones, user-defined properties such as status and use standardized tags to mark assets for custom governance status.
- It uses AI to detect Personally Identifiable Data (PII), flag the data as PII and enable specific PII handling controls to be put in place.
- It supports a complete audit trail of all aspects of the system including the full details of any component and how the data is used (queried).
Some organizations have put in place metadata and data catalogs to help IT centralize metadata information. Recognizing this, Spotlight is designed to integrate with external catalogs to keep metadata in sync, and connectors to leading data and BI catalogs such as Tableau Catalog and Collibra.
