How It Works

COMPLIANCE

Protect and audit your data with compliance, business continuity, data quality monitoring and lineage:

  • Secure data on a platform with comprehensive compliance certifications

  • Replicate and failover databases, shares, role-based access control, governance policies, compute resources, network policies, and more across clouds

  • Monitor data quality with both out-of-the-box and custom metrics3

  • Audit data usage through Access History and Schema Change Tracking

  • Understand the flow of data through object dependencies and lineage
