ALTR’s solution enables database administrators, data engineers, and data architects to drastically reduce manual tasks or hand them off completely to deliver greater value from their data quicker. Data and InfoSec teams choose ALTR to help govern data because their easy-to-use, low-code platform helps them migrate sensitive data to the cloud and easily implement role-based access controls. Further, ALTR’s interoperability and ecosystem integrations with data catalogs and ETLs allows organizations to keep data secure throughout the entire data journey.

“As the leading data governance and security innovator, customers select ALTR’s platform for its unique ability to blend the demands of both data and security teams into a single platform,” said Wagnon. “Unlike other offerings, ALTR enables organizations to gain greater insights and value from more data in less time. I am thrilled to join this progressive company and look forward to helping customers ensure their data is secure in motion and at rest so they can leverage all necessary data to drive critical decision-making.”

With nearly 20 years of experience in product management, data governance, and data strategy, Wagnon is passionate about creating user-centric, innovative, and market-leading cloud software solutions and fostering collaboration and transparency across product development processes. Most recently, he was VP of Product for Syniti, responsible for developing the vision and roadmap for the company’s Data Governance Product Suite, including data catalog, MDM, and data quality. Prior to that, Wagnon was the Senior Director of Product Strategy for BackOffice Associates and held numerous Senior Data Governance Lead positions for companies such as The Dow Chemical Company and Abbott Laboratories.

“As a proven product management and governance evangelist, Matt has been working with data and driving market research for nearly two decades, splitting his time between delivery/consulting and product management,” said James Beecham, founder and CEO of ALTR. “He understands that sensitive and regulated data left unprotected before reaching a cloud data warehouse is at high risk of exposure. We’re excited to have Matt aboard and look forward to leveraging his skills as we continue to develop ALTR’s SaaS product and deliver on our mission to help organizations use data to their advantage while ensuring sensitive information remains protected.”
