Effectively manage risks and comply with regulations

Overview

Alation’s solution for managing personal data is fueled by a sustainable approach to privacy and risk. The Alation platform automatically discovers and classifies sensitive data assets at scale. Alation surfaces recommendations, flags, and policy information directly in the data consumers’ day-to-day activities and workflows, transforming compliance and ethics into a core part of the data culture.

ACHIEVE COMPLIANCE WITH REGULATIONS

Facilitate compliance with multiple regulations within a single platform by classifying, and tagging sensitive data assets at scale.

Address multiple regulations from one platform

To meet the challenges of rapidly increasing and evolving regulations, Alation provides a scalable, enterprise-grade platform that addresses multiple regulations, like CCPA, GDPR, by cataloging enterprise data, operationalizing privacy policies, and performing impact analysis in a centralized location.

Scale compliance quickly

Alation discovers, classifies, and tags sensitive data assets at scale. Alation’s 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.

Provide enterprise-wide view of 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, investigate, report data risks

Alation provides real-time visibility into data lifecycle including data lineage, policies, usage patterns, and changes in the data environment. This enables enterprises to proactively audit data, manage, and mitigate data risks.

We want to use Alation for our privacy and security, like for classification and retention of data.
