PrivaceraCloud 4.2


PrivaceraCloud Release

New And Improved Features#

Feature Preview: Governed Data Sharing with PrivaceraCloud#

Contact Privacera Support to request enabling this feature.

PrivaceraCloud governed data sharing enforces a separation of data, access control, and compliance.

The fundamental purposes of governed data sharing are to:

  • Subdivide your data into fine-grained data domains of various cloud datasources.
  • Create shared datasets based on those data domains.
  • Control access by users, groups, and roles to shared datasets and projects.

Governed data sharing is fully compatible with PrivaceraCloud features such as resource policies, access policies, and permissions. These features can still be used without governed data sharing.

Like PrivaceraCloud without governed data sharing, your account administrator sets up the basic PrivaceraCloud building blocks: connected data sources and users. After those building blocks are available, governed data sharing simplifies and streamlines working with PrivaceraCloud, automatically creating policies and permissions as you define data domains, shared datasets, and projects.

A new feature for this release is the ability of the data owner to delegate the management of data user acess requests to a data steward.


Enabling Single Sign-On (SSO) on PrivaceraCloud disables login based on credentials that might have been stored on PrivaceraCloud itself.

Encryption and Masking#

Enabling Privacera Encryption is now located in Settings > Account. (Formerly, Encryption was configured as a datasource.)


Preview: File Explorer for Azure#

Contact Privacera Support to request enabling this feature.

The File Explorer is in preview for Azure. See Preview: File Explorer for Azure

Random Sampling of Datasources#

You can now specify that the tagging/classification for a datasource be a random sample. This is especially useful for datasources whose data is not normalized.
