Key differences between Satori and Privacera

Satori logo2 dark

Satori provides first-class support for modern data stores and cloud environments, including multi-cloud. Privacera, built on Apache Ranger, is optimized for legacy Hadoop environments.

Satori’s datasets automatically pick up new tables and apply policies based on user access rules. Privacera’s policy engine is complex to configure and hard to maintain.

Implementing Satori takes days (network-level database proxy) to weeks (native orchestration). Privacera, due to its open-source nature, requires extensive deployment, configuration, tuning and customization efforts, often resulting in longer implementation timelines.

With Satori, data consumers can get or request access to data sets through an intuitive data portal, integrations with Slack or Teams, or through the command line, unlike Privacera’s legacy user interface.

Satori protects many SQL and NoSQL operational data stores without requiring any changes to your schema or permissions, thus not impacting your production workloads. Privacera only supports PostgreSQL and Microsoft SQL Server by translating Apache Ranger policies to GRANT/REVOKE statements.
