Axiomatics Announces Technology Partnership with Tableau

New Integration enables Fine-Grained Authorization to Data in the Tableau Platform

CHICAGO – April 16, 2019 – Axiomatics, the leader in externalized, fine-grained dynamic authorization, today announced it has been named a certified Technology Partner with Tableau Software. This partnership is driven by the integration of the Axiomatics SmartGuard® for Big Data and the Axiomatics Data Access Filter with Tableau, the leading analytics platform. The integration allows individuals, non-profits, government agencies and Fortune 500 companies to apply fine-grained authorization to data in Tableau for advanced, dynamic access control.

Tableau’s data query capabilities work across different data sources so that the platform can retrieve any relevant data across an enterprise. Fine-grained access control from Axiomatics ensures sensitive data is protected, but for authorized users, the “right” data is still available for analysis and insight.

To safeguard data accessed by Tableau, SmartGuard for Big Data and the Axiomatics Data Access Filter intercept calls to the data store and apply a filter before data is fetched, ensuring sensitive data only leaves the data store to those who are authorized to view it. The policy-based approach also provides the visibility and control needed to manage complex access control scenarios without hard-coding access control logic directly into applications, APIs or data stores.

“Business intelligence platforms like Tableau consume and analyze data that may contain sensitive or restricted information for various reasons,” said Gerry Gebel, vice president of business development at Axiomatics. “SmartGuard for Big Data provides Tableau users with access to all the data they are authorized to so they can perform their tasks, while safeguarding critical data assets for privacy, security or regulatory reasons.”

When using Tableau, there are explicit access control rules that must be implemented based on specific attributes of the data or specific attributes of the user. The Axiomatics Dynamic Authorization Suite allows enterprises to share sensitive, valuable and regulated digital assets in Tableau while dynamically filtering and masking sensitive data from unauthorized users.
