Today, the ability to capture and harness the value of data in real-time is critical for businesses to remain competitive in a data-driven world. Apache Kafka is now at the heart of thousands of mission critical and revenue generating applications that turn real-time events into valuable business outcomes, which means it is more important than ever to ensure the information it processes is properly secured and meets regulatory compliance.
However, this is no easy task. Setting up a cluster with enterprise-grade security, whether on-prem or in the cloud, is complex and can delay applications from getting to market by months if not years. If not architected correctly with the tooling needed to protect data confidentiality, prevent unwanted access and control access, Kafka deployments are exposed to unnecessary risks that can lead to operational downtime or a data breach.
Confluent reduces the risk of Apache Kafka security breaches without hindering agile development with a complete event streaming platform that is secure by default. With data security and access controls built-in to every component, customers can reduce the time it takes to move applications to production without bypassing strict security requirements demanded for any mission critical application.
