StreamSets Creates Platform that will Help Companies Meet Data Privacy Compliance
StreamSets Inc., a provider an enterprise DataOps platform, is releasing a new platform that will discover, secure, and govern personal identifiable information (PII) as it arrives from a batch or streaming data source or moves between compute platforms.
Designed with data privacy regulations in mind, StreamSets Data Protector reduces risk of expensive and embarrassing violations by helping companies meet requirements for GDPR, HIPAA, and other compliance regimes.
StreamSets Data Protector extends protection to the point of initial data ingestion, leveraging Dataflow Sensors that are part of StreamSets Data Collector.
These sensors discover PII by comparing incoming data to built-in patterns such as national ID, tax ID or driver license numbers, bank account or credit card numbers, or IP addresses, or additional patterns created by the customer.
Without the automation StreamSets provides, laborious hand-coding is required to continuously check each data source against dozens or hundreds of PII patterns. This approach becomes impossible, especially as unstructured data and data drift — unexpected changes to the structure and semantics of the incoming data — come to the fore.
StreamSets Data Protector gives enterprises an automatic, centralized and data drift-resistant way to implement data protection policies across all inbound pipelines.
The key capabilities of StreamSets Data Protector are to discover sensitive data, secure it “in flight,” and provide centralized governance to ensure continuous policy compliance.
