ALTR is developing a policy automation tool for businesses

ALTR, a Texas-based company that provides a platform for managing data access and security in Snowflake, has today announced the release of a policy automation tool to assist companies in simplifying the process of writing and maintaining policies to control who gets access to what data and how often.


These data and analytics engineers are faced with enormous backlogs as a result of their business being set up data access policies, managing ongoing data permissions, and handling data access requests. These professionals end up spending a large chunk of the business hours on their main task. ALTR''s policy automation platform, which was first announced at the next Snowflake Summit, addresses this challenge by automating access policies on sensitive data types (like emails and social security numbers) as well as data governance policies and security capabilities.
