How to secure customer data with Apono

Database access control is key to customer satisfaction - customers want to (and are required to) ensure least privilege to their data and their customers' data by their vendors.

This may include metadata, like users, resource names (like DBs, repositories, etc.), DaaS (data as a service) titles and paths, and also actual data, especially Personal Identifiable Information of customers and employees (names, IDs, addresses, emails, phone numbers, and any other personal attribute).

Apono handles the access workflow for each user who needs to access a customer environment, account, tenant or database, including approval, provisioning, secure access details, revocation and audit:
