CPI Collibra-PKWARE integration is a data management, data governance, and metadata harvesting framework that leverages sensitive data and provisions PKWARE reports and source metadata from the input data sources. Collibra integrates with PKWARE through a proprietary PK CIM framework, combining the governance capabilities of Collibra with PKWARE, which is used to address data discovery and protection challenges of sensitive data. The CPI framework allows enrichment and provisioning of metadata along with sensitive types of reports through PKWARE. Sensitive Types, PKWARE Scan Results are supported by PKWARE and brought under the governance umbrella of Collibra workflows for secure data provisioning without compromising the data privacy. Industry standard regulations and security practices are taken into account and based on the interacting entities, data usage (DU), data movement (DM), and data sharing agreements (DSA) assets are available to be leveraged per the organization’s requirements.

Business and functional challenges that are encountered in provisioning access typically include:

  • Lack of a centralized governance platform that controls access to multiple data sources.
  • Lack of data discovery and resulting protection challenges.
  • Data discovery challenges due to multiple metadata platforms and non-uniform discovery features.
  • Lack of finding, protecting and controlling the sensitive and personal data in organization.
  • Lack of understanding exactly what kind of data exists and where it is located.

The PK Protect suite offers solutions for above business and functional challenges. It allows businesses to better manage personal information and other sensitive data, combining extensive expertise, data-driven processes, and proven technologies to balance data usage with data protection for minimal risk and maximum value.
