How ALTR Works

ALTR integrates directly into the application layer to put data security services in the path between users who access data and the data itself. ALTR has two ways of integrating, each with its own unique integration point to serve different datastore types.

Highly Transactional Databases

For applications with highly transactional databases, like Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and DB2, ALTR integrates using a smart database driver, embedding high performance services in the critical path of data.

Data Lakes, Document Systems, and File Drives

ALTR provides a simple API to integrate with applications that access non-relational or unstructured data stores.

Both approaches access ALTR’s Data Security as a Service in the Cloud. Integration is simple, portable, and scales as your application scales.

The Key Advantages


ALTR is like an ATM for data. Every query is monitored and exposed to a risk layer continuously in real-time, and data is tokenized on the back end to force data consumption through the front door.


ALTR drops into your application quickly using a smart database driver or API and it integrates with your SIEM and identity provider. From there it centralizes data security for a wide array of datastores and allows you to decommission legacy tools.

More Portable and Scalable

An application native approach means that ALTR secures data in any cloud or on prem (or both), providing a security model that moves wherever your workload goes. It also scales naturally as your applications scales.

ALTR is designed to protect sensitive data across the enterprise, from Oracle to Snowflake, from On-Prem to Cloud, from integers to videos.
