Protecto announced the integration of its artificial intelligence and privacy engineering platform into Snowflake. Snowflake is a data cloud company; this integration will help customers to identify data security issues before data breaches, and customer trust violations occur.

Data is the foundation of modern businesses, but it is increasingly susceptible to security flaws, privacy violations, and theft. Manual processes and compliance checks are insufficient to safeguard today’s complex data environments. The partnership between Protecto and Snowflake will provide visibility in identifying data protection vulnerabilities while maintaining the speed and agility of Snowflake’s platform.

Amar Kanagaraj, Founder and CEO of Protecto, commented, “The world is evolving to be privacy-first and zero-trust security. As a result, companies expect data security and privacy as part of their data stack. We’re introducing Data Posture Intelligence, a technology multiple steps ahead of the competition to deliver data protection in minutes.”

Protecto automates data privacy, security, and governance audits to provide results in minutes. The solution provides data posture insights in a single pane of glass, which helps their joint customers in finding personal information. It helps them determine who has access to sensitive data, identify inactive users, and audit user permissions. It allows customers to check user activities for potential privacy violations. Customers can recognize unused data that is open, overexposed, or stale.

Venkat Gopalan, Chief Data Officer of Belcorp, commented, “Cloud data platforms such as Snowflake give us enormous scalability and agility. With Protecto and Snowflake’s partnership, we have tighter control over our data security and privacy. Products like Protecto give us granular visibility over data protection across our Snowflake Data Cloud.”
