Governance & Security

Data Governance

The Data lake houses organization-wide data from various sources, including sensitive Personal Identifiable Information (PII) data. Compliance with privacy laws is crucial, necessitating robust data security and governance.

Qubole Data Service (QDS) has always had a variety of options for application-level governance. You can create custom roles and group users into these roles to control access around editing cluster settings, running specific command types, and other areas of the product.

Spark Data Access Control Framework can help address security concerns and promote enterprise adoption. Apache Ranger can be utilized to offer fine-grained data access control in Hive and Presto, enabling row-level filtering, column-level masking, and data security monitoring. This framework ensures secure and controlled access to data stored in the Qubole Metastore, fostering a safe and compliant data environment.


Being a dedicated cloud service, Qubole places utmost importance on the security, privacy, availability, and confidentiality of data. Maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and accessibility of our customers’ data is paramount.

Employing a multi-faceted strategy, we ensure safeguarding this essential information, consistently observing and enhancing our applications, systems, and workflows. This proactive approach enables us to effectively address the evolving security requirements and complexities associated with cloud-based solutions.
