Drive Compliance Readiness with Automated Data Privacy

Overview

Alation provides a sustainable approach to CCPA compliance by helping to build a privacy-aware data culture. The Alation platform brings full visibility into personal data with preconfigured content, like data categories, lineage, workflows, reports, and more. With Alation, enterprises can achieve faster time to CCPA compliance while implementing a platform that can scale to support multiple regulations.

Achieve CCPA Compliance to Gain Consumer Trust

QUICKLY SATISFY DATA REQUESTS

Accelerate the fulfillment of data requests from consumers by enabling quick and accurate discovery of personal data, enriched with human and machine-generated context.

INSTILL PRIVACY ACROSS THE ENTERPRISE

Foster a privacy-aware data culture that recognizes protecting personal data as everyone’s responsibility by actively engaging line-of-business stakeholders, empowering them to make risk-aware decisions.

SAVE TIME AND REDUCE COST THROUGH AUTOMATION

Jump-start CCPA efforts by automatically cataloging and classifying enterprise data assets — saving time and reducing cost associated with unagile, ineffective approaches.

DEMONSTRATE COMPLIANCE TO CCPA

Affirm compliance by providing an aggregated view of documentation comprising sources of personal information, categories, processes, and data usage patterns.

Bring visibility and context to personal data

Alation enables organizations to actively catalog all enterprise data assets, contextualized with relevant and searchable metadata. Alation brings full visibility into data and its lifecycle which enables faster discovery and retrieval of data to satisfy data requests from consumers in a timely manner.

Automate classification and tagging of data assets

The Alation platform automatically categorizes, classifies, and tags data assets at scale. Alation accelerates documentation through collaboration and crowdsourcing. These enable rapid response to CCPA requests and systematic assessment and documentation of the level of privacy and risk.

Report data risks and documentation KPIs

Alation’s data catalog actively tracks changes in the data environments, including data lineage, behavioral insights, and usage patterns that enable proactive auditing, impact assessments, reporting, and management of data risks. The Alation platform delivers dashboards and analytics for tracking documentation progress and informing overarching action and resource-allocation.

Communicate policies to the front line

Alation actively communicates privacy policies such as GDPR, CCPA to front-line users directly within their workflows through flags, alerts, and conversations to ensure personal data is processed only when necessary for a specific purpose as required by CCPA.

Extend via integration with existing capabilities

The Alation Platform provides robust APIs to integrate existing metadata like documentation, business glossaries, lineage, data quality metrics from other tools, and to export policies and metadata from Alation to holistically meet ongoing demand of CCPA.

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