AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALTR, the leading provider of data control and protection software for enterprises, today announced new updates to its platform to make it more accessible than ever. Updates include new automated data usage visualizations, the launch of a free plan with unlimited consumption intelligence and full-featured data governance and easy access to ALTR’s platform through integration into Snowflake’s Partner Connect portal. ALTR’s solutions provide a modern approach to traditional data governance with cloud-native, no-code data control and protection.
ALTR introduced an updated Data Usage Analytics function to its platform through a new and unique Usage Analytics heatmap, delivering insights on how data is being accessed so companies can more easily enforce governance and prevent security events. With the new heatmap, users can connect their Snowflake instance, and ALTR will automatically map data access and usage information, enabling users to start visualizing their top data users, their roles and the data being accessed. It empowers users to set standards for normal data patterns, enforce policy and investigate anomalies in real time.
Additionally, ALTR has rolled out its ALTR Free Plan—the first and only free, full product offering of its kind—offering unlimited data usage analytics on data in Snowflake, full-featured access governance, automatic data classification, dynamic data masking and the ability to set risk-based thresholds on data access. Customers can stay on the ALTR Free plan forever or upgrade to ALTR’s Enterprise plans to take advantage of ALTR’s enterprise platform and security integrations, management API, patented tokenization-as-a-service product and other features.

With a few clicks, Snowflake admins can sign up for the ALTR Free plan and begin to discover, classify, govern and control data within minutes. The addition of ALTR to Snowflake’s Partner Connect reinforces the market demand for governance, control and protection of cloud data. Combined with ALTR’s unique cloud-native Snowflake integration, this makes it even easier for companies to safely and securely move more data workloads to the cloud.
