Trifacta’s data preparation platform is architected with data security in mind.
Trifacta translates user-generated metadata describing data transformation logic into a job executed in a scalable data processing engine (such as AWS EMR, Snowflake, Google Cloud BigQuery or Google Cloud Dataflow).
The job reads, transforms, and writes your data between your source and your target systems with data never persisted outside of your resources. Trifacta uses a secure connection between your source and target systems.
Trifacta’s web-interface is leveraged by users to define the data transformation logic and scheduled job execution. Trifacta stores these definitions in the form of metadata within an encrypted relational database, but Trifacta does not store any of your actual data.
Trifacta inherits existing user permissions set on data resources. As such, users can only prepare the data they have access to.
Because Trifacta provides a single point of access for preparing your data, you can establish a robust self-service analytics governance infrastructure. Everyone within your company can answer their own questions while keeping data sprawl to a minimum and access to sensitive information restricted.
