Security is absolutely critical in data lakes, since a data lake oftentimes contains the majority of an organization’s data. Giving users access to the data they need to do their job should not necessarily mean giving them access to all of the data in the lake. Unfortunately, many data lake tools, especially custom do-it-yourself (DIY) implementations, do not provide an easy way to manage and audit data access.
In Magpie, security is a core concept, where every user action is verified and logged for future review. In this post, we’ll demonstrate how to secure your data lake quickly and effectively with Magpie.
