We're thrilled to announce that ALTR's Snowflake native app, Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE), is now available on the Snowflake Marketplace. This marks a significant step forward in our mission to make data security seamless, efficient, and scalable for our customers. Let's dive into what this means for you.

What is Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE)?

Imagine encrypting your sensitive data without altering its original structure or format. That's precisely what FPE does. It transforms plaintext data into ciphertext while keeping the same format. For example, a phone number like "(800) 416-4710" might be encrypted as"(201) 867-5309." This means your applications and systems can continue operating smoothly without needing changes to handle encrypted data.

Why is This a Big Deal?

Traditionally, encrypting data involved a lot of headaches. On-premises systems were expensive, costing millions of dollars per license, and they introduced significant lag because of the back-and-forth calls between Snowflake and the on-premises servers. This not only slowed down your queries but also burned a hole in your pocket with monthly costs.

With ALTR's Snowflake Native FPE, all the encryption and decryption happen locally within Snowflake. No more external calls, no more lag—just fast, secure data processing. Plus, your data stays protected at rest within the Snowflake Data Cloud, ensuring it's always secure.

How Does Snowpark Make This Possible?

Snowpark, Snowflake's developer framework, provides the perfect environment for our FPE solution. It supports fully functional applications, enabling us to deliver powerful encryption directly in Snowflake. This means you get top-notch data protection without compromising performance or ease of use.

Why Should You Care About ALTR's FPE on Snowflake?

Here's why this is excellent news for you:

Simplified Data Protection: ALTR's FPE integrates seamlessly with our existing data access control and security solutions. This means you can easily implement and manage comprehensive data security through our SaaS platform, no-code interface, and automated policy enforcement.

Cost Savings and Efficiency: You save millions in licensing fees and monthly operational costs by eliminating the need for on-premises appliances. Plus, faster query response times make your data operations more efficient.

Future-Proof Security: FPE ensures that your sensitive data is always protected, even as you scale and evolve your data ecosystem. It's particularly beneficial for industries like financial services and healthcare, where maintaining data interoperability with legacy systems is crucial.

What Do Our Customers Think?

"ALTR's FPE offering running natively in our Snowflake environment proved to be far more effective, scalable, and affordable than the legacy solutions we considered. Further, with ALTR's cloud-native, SaaS architecture, we could extend FPE upstream into our data pipeline, expanding our compliance footprint to include a staging area prior to workloads landing in Snowflake."
