Veza Authorization Platform is Now on the Snowflake Data Cloud

Veza announced that its Veza Authorization Platform is now available on the Snowflake Data Cloud, enabling joint customers to manage access permissions and secure their sensitive data at scale.

By leveraging the Snowflake Data Cloud, Veza is joining Snowflake in mobilizing the world’s data to help organizations secure access to sensitive data and achieve continuous compliance, according to the vendor.

Veza’s Authorization Platform provides companies with visibility into access permissions across all enterprise systems, enabling customers to achieve least privilege for all identities, human and non-human, including service accounts.

“Securing access permissions to data is fundamental as organizations rapidly adopt the Snowflake Data Cloud,” said Tarik Dwiek, head of technology alliances at Snowflake. “We look forward to witnessing Veza help our joint customers mobilize their data by making it simple for security and compliance teams to manage access permissions and maintain compliance as regulations evolve.”

The integration between Veza and Snowflake helps companies:

  • Visualize who can take what action on what data in Snowflake. Discover which enterprise identities (both human and non-human) have access to Snowflake objects (databases, tables, and columns) and understand the specific permissions granted to each identity.
  • Monitor dormant access to databases/tables. Save on licensing costs by rightsizing access for inactive or over-provisioned users across various business units.
  • Conduct access reviews quickly and comprehensively. Identify access policy violations in real-time, rather than waiting for quarterly audits.
  • Assign users to least permissive roles. Stay compliant and protect sensitive data from landing in the hands of threat actors by choosing the least permissive Snowflake local role that allows their users to do their job, while adhering to the principle of least privilege.
  • Eliminate risk associated with M&A activity. Accelerate the migration of roles, groups, and permissions during M&A and verify that permissions work as intended.

Veza’s API-first approach enables rapid integration with Snowflake, as the platform ingests RBAC metadata without the need for enterprises to deploy agents or make network changes to support the integration.

“As companies accelerate their migration and adoption of data in the cloud with platforms like Snowflake, it has become critical to develop a comprehensive access governance strategy for who can perform what actions on sensitive data in Snowflake,” said Tarun Thakur, CEO and co-founder of Veza. “Our integration with Snowflake enables customers to quickly secure their data lake environments by simplifying permissions management on granular Snowflake resources, while proactively protecting their organization against data breaches, insider threats, and cyberattacks.”

The integration is generally available to customers now. Veza’s integration with Snowflake is one of many enterprise integrations available to help companies secure access to data across the enterprise, according to Veza.
