Data Privacy and Compliance
Effectively manage risks and
comply with regulations
Alation’s solution for managing personal data is fueled by a human-centric approach to privacy and risk. The Alation Data Catalog automatically discovers and classifies sensitive data assets at scale. And to guide people, Alation surfaces recommendations, flags, and policy information directly in the data consumers’ day-to-day activities and workflows, making data privacy compliance and ethics a core part of data culture.

Scale data privacy compliance quickly
Alation discovers, classifies, and tags sensitive data assets at scale. Alation’s enterprise data catalog actively tracks changes to the data environment, provides insights based on usage patterns, and surfaces alerts informing users of new policies and stipulations within their workflows.
Protect Sensitive Data
Alation catalogs all enterprise data and related assets to deliver a unified view of potential risk. This enables enterprises to easily perform risk modeling and analysis to proactively identify, manage, and mitigate risks.
Audit and Report on Data Risk
Alation provides real-time visibility into policy compliance, which is essential to meeting auditor requirements. Alation reporting tracks users who are (or aren’t) complying with policies, and monitors progress for data protection and curation tasks.
We want to use Alation for our privacy and security, like for classification and retention of data.
