Fortanix and Snowflake offer an easy to implement and cost-friendly external tokenization service that allows customers to seamlessly tokenize sensitive data inside and outside Snowflake. Fortanix Data Security Manager SaaS (DSM SaaS) seamlessly integrates with SnowFlake to offer a highly scalable solution that can be deployed in minutes
Key Pillars for the Solution
Obtain rapid and easy integration with Snowflake.
The Fortanix integration with Snowflake can easily be deployed in minutes vs. weeks or months—thus delivering much faster time to value. This gives customers the speed and efficiency to ingest tokenized data in Snowflake in less than 5 minutes.
Rest API driven, developer and cloud-friendly solution offering easier integration with data flows.
Fortanix DSM is a cloud native and DevOps friendly, with full container support and native RESTful APIs. This
makes the solution ready for the challenges of public cloud, hybrid cloud, dynamic regulatory environments, and agile application development.
Vaultless tokenization with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified HSM.
Vaultless Tokenization is more secure. Fortanix also offers vaultless tokenization that uses a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliant HSM to tokenize data. There is no centralized token database required.
Advanced data masking.
A user can choose to dynamically mask an entire field of tokenized data or part of the field based on user or group.
Tokenize any custom object or data type.
Users can tokenize any custom objects to protect any kind of data such as a credit card, SSN, name, email etc.
Format Preserving with Granular Access Controls.
The combination of Format Preserving Tokenization and role-based access control (RBAC) for applications helps in protecting sensitive data. With Fortanix, authorized users can get authenticated through RBAC, query the data, and tokenize data on the fly.
Integrated data security platform with ‘Single Pane of Management’.
Achieve privacy compliance for personally identifiable information and sensitive data.
Eliminate risks of key compromise in shared infrastructure.
Cost-effective External Tokenization delivered as SaaS. No hardware or perpetual license required.
How it Works?
Customers moving sensitive data and workloads from their on-prem environments to the cloud can tokenize this data sitting in the cloud instance before ingesting it to Snowflake.
Snowflake does not encrypt the data until the data is inside the Snowflake application. The data can be secured using the Fortanix DSM for cloud environments.
Once the data is tokenized inside the cloud, it’s ingested into Snowflake. Customers can then provide specific user-based control to the tokenized data.
