Our Mission

We believe access to the right data by the right people at the right time can change the world. The next set of transformative companies will be the ones that harness the power of data and leverage it to build world-class products and services. Data should be democratized and be available to everyone in an organization.

At the same time, guardrails around data governance and security must be maintained at all times. Privacera’s mission is to help our customers maximize the value of their data by providing a comprehensive data governance and security platform that works across all cloud and on-premises data services so enterprises can analyze all their data consistently and transparently.


The founding team at Privacera has a rich history of bringing together data, governance and security. Privacera founders Balaji Ganesan and Don Bosco Durai previously started a company called XA Secure focused on centralized access management in Hadoop. XA Secure was acquired by Hortonworks in 2014 and the product was contributed to the Apache Software Foundation and became known as Apache Ranger. While at Hortonworks, the team started another open source project, Apache Atlas, focused on comprehensive data governance.

Recognizing that more and more data workloads were moving to the cloud, Balaji and Bosco started Privacera in 2016 to apply and extend the governance and security capabilities of Ranger and Atlas to cloud data services. Today, Privacera provides the industry’s only integrated data governance and security platform that spans cloud and on-premises data services, giving IT and data teams the comprehensive view of data and centralized access management they need to meet their dual mandate.

Deep Investments in the Cloud

We believe the cloud is massively changing the ways enterprises store and access their data.

Privacera makes it easy for enterprises to expand their use of the public cloud with a centralized platform that manages all aspects of data governance and security.
