SAN MATEO, Calif., Sept. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rockset, the real-time analytics company, today unveiled a significant release that delivers best-in-class enterprise-grade security and compliance capabilities to its cloud native, real-time analytics database. With this launch, Rockset is proud to announce it has successfully completed SOC 2 Type II certification, the most thorough and widely valued of the three SOC reports. Customers entrust Rockset with their data, and now they have rigorous, independent assurance that Rockset protects it by following security best practices. To help further improve customer compliance efforts, Rockset also introduced Audit Logs, which will allow customers to request a detailed report for all activities within their Rockset environment including queries and API calls, account logins, and more.
In addition to new compliance capabilities, Rockset has also introduced a wide range of new security features allowing customers to securely build real-time, data-intensive applications in record time. With this launch, customers can now enforce least privileged access to all resources within Rockset, eliminating the security risks that come with over privileged access. Using the new role-based access control with custom roles, admins can set more granular permissions to ensure all users will have access to only the resources they deserve. Custom roles are extended to API keys as well so developers can now expose API keys with only limited privileges, something that could not be done before. Next, the new Views functionality allows developers to both accelerate data analysis and provide extra security by limiting the exposure of the underlying data to others. Finally, as part of this launch, Rockset is introducing enhanced identity and access management capabilities through its integration with Okta Single-Sign On (SSO) and native support for Multi-Factor Authentication.
“Because Rockset is a core piece of the modern cloud data stack, we take security and compliance very seriously,” said Venkat Venkataramani, CEO and co-founder of Rockset. “As an enterprise grade solution, security must be baked in and deliver tight control, access, and compliance. We are seeing significant demand from enterprise customers that expect solutions with a comprehensive approach to security, so that they can stay focused on meeting the day-to-day needs of their business.”
Rockset expands security capabilities to include the following enterprise-grade features:
