Best in Class Cloud Security

Cazena is built, managed and supported by enterprise experts and security is a core foundation of our company and service. We have industry-leading compliance certifications, specialized software and expertise to deliver a secure data platform in the cloud. Cazena has been audited successfully for SOC II compliance – please contact us for a complete list of certifications.

The Cazena security model is highly-differentiated. First, each of our customers get their own single-tenant Cazena “data cloud”, effectively a private section of Azure or AWS for your team only. This ensures that datasets are secure and compliant. Cazena single-tenant environments are secure (Kerberized, etc.) and encrypt all data in motion and at rest by default. The clusters are managed and monitored to conform to our strict enterprise security and compliance standards.

All services include the Cazena Gateway software which manages access to the cloud. The gateway is powerful enough to run in enterprise datacenters – and regularly passes muster with tough network and security guidelines. It is also lightweight enough to run on laptops for easy access from anywhere. The Cazena Gateway makes it easy to move data from connected enterprise or cloud sources – so you can load and store data in the cloud once for team access. Cazena also manages staging and storage of data on object stores for a single point of data management. Logging, alerting and compliance reporting are included with Cazena, and all services include monitoring and processes to work with your access controls and governance systems.
