Kafka security & compliance to reduce risk for your streaming data projects

Sure, you may have secure Kafka infrastructure, but dropping your guard on data operations in Kafka spells disaster: breaching compliance, outages, or worse - finding your data for sale on Craigslist.

Data Governance and Security

Do you have a “don’t look, don’t tell” approach to Kafka security?

Onboarding critical data to Apache Kafka can get messy - leading to your security teams asking you: what decade are these security controls from?

How can you make sure users can access the right Kafka resources, so you can get your project to production and not worry about a 3am call from your infosec team?

Why secure your Kafka data operations?

Apache Kafka security best practices, with comprehensive compliance

How can we control data access and platform operations?

More fine-grained than ACLs, use Lenses unified security model over a UI and API to provide flexible access management.

Limit Data Access
Control data access

How can we send data operations audits into my SIEM?

Generate audits for all user operations and integrate them with 3rd party SIEM systems such as Splunk.

How can we discover data and mask fields to meet compliance?

Intelligently detect metadata across your applications, connectors and data streams, and then configure pseudonymization.

Data Masking
Users compliance

How can I best authenticate my users to meet compliance?

Authenticate and authorize users via pre-built integrations with top Identity SSO Providers including Okta, Keycloak, OneLogin & Google SSO

How can we make our Kafka data platform multi-tenant?

Protect data access in Kafka, Elasticsearch and Postgres, Kafka Connect data integration connectors and more, all with namespaces!
