Get production-ready with Apache Kafka governance & self-service

Apache Kafka monitoring is just the beginning. Imagine you could create a healthy, safe multi-tenant Kafka environment for teams to build real-time apps and flows, without worrying about breaching compliance or causing an outage?

Kafka Governance

“Can I protect Kafka & give self-service access to engineers?”

Kafka should be your business’s central nervous system, but not without addressing the elephant in the room: Data governance, data protection, data masking, access controls and auditing are all non-existent.

The pressure is on for you to deliver new data products to market. But a wild west of streaming data inaccessible to the right people is slowing you down and turning your platform team into a dependency.

Applying the right rules, guardrails and self-service administration to Kafka means higher productivity, more POCs move to production, and more apps move to market.


“I believe the biggest value of Lenses.io is in governance support, at operational process and information security level, which makes it an ideal solution for enterprises for whom scale is a matter of serious attention.”

Dario Carnelli, Governance Expert (Isaca Certified)
