Satori provides universal visibility into data access permissions with the Universal Data Permissions Scanner

Satori, a leading data security platform, is introducing its Universal Data Permissions Scanner, a free open-source tool that enables companies to easily understand which employees have access to what data. The solution aims to reduce the risks associated with overprivileged or unauthorized users and streamlines compliance reporting, according to the company.

The Universal Data Permissions Scanner (UDPS) simplifies the complexity associated with authorization. Simultaneously, using the UDPS reduces the security risk from overprivileged users by ensuring that access controls are appropriately applied and revoked.

The Universal Data Permissions Scanner provides companies with a clear view of data access authorizations. The free tool scans databases, data warehouses, cloud accounts, or data lakes, and analyzes the permissions model of the data platforms to retrieve a human-readable list of users, and their access level to the various data assets, including database tables, cloud storage buckets and files, and more.

Notably, the Universal Data Permissions Scanner is platform-agnostic, making it capable of providing authorization intel across any data store. It currently supports Snowflake, Databricks, Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift, Google BigQuery, MongoDB, and others. Since this is an open-source project, users can continue to add new data stores, expanding the power and value of the tool for the data security community.

Gaining transparency into data access through the Universal Data Permissions Scanner enables companies to reduce the risks associated with overprivileged users, improve their data posture, enhance data security, and simplify compliance reporting, freeing up valuable time for critical business tasks.

“We developed the Universal Data Permissions Scanner in response to the constant struggles faced by data and security engineers in simplifying data security and better managing authorizations,” said Yoav Cohen, CTO and co-founder of Satori. “Our decision to embrace open-source for this project is rooted in our belief that collaboration and inclusivity are key to solving complex challenges. By making this tool free and open to all, we are inviting all organizations—not just our customers—to join us in enhancing global data security."

The Universal Data Permissions Scanner by Satori is available now on GitHub.
