Using Satori vs. Orchestration Solutions
Satori provides a platform that streamlines access to sensitive data and gives you visibility and controls for your data access.
Data Access Orchestration Solutions
An alternative to using Satori is employing products that perform orchestration of native data store capabilities. This alternative means paying for a product that simplifies the management of the existing capabilities, instead of implementing them by yourself.
What You Should Know
Using orchestration solutions will probably save you time over writing your own implementation of native capabilities. However, compared to Satori’s DataSecOps solution, orchestration solutions are limited in many ways, as detailed below.
Main Differences Between Satori & Orchestration Solutions
Satori is able to analyze the data as it is being accessed, unlike orchestration solutions. Satori can discover sensitive information on-the-fly and immediately act on it. More narrowly, orchestration solutions rely on periodic batch processing to identify and tag sensitive data.
Orchestration solutions are limited to the specific native capabilities available for the data store, imposing restrictions that do not exist in Satori.
Orchestration solutions often pollute the data infrastructure with objects that are needed to abstract data access. In addition, in many cases, they force you to change existing logic (e.g. accessing new abstract objects instead of the existing ones). With Satori, you do not need to add any database objects or change anything in your queries.
Superadmin Credentials Usage.
Orchestration solutions require the usage of high-access users. This means that you will probably have a user that can perform a lot (i.e., create objects and read data) on an SaaS or appliance. With Satori, you do not need to add any additional credentials, eliminating the risk of undesirable changes.
