The threat of a data security breach, someone gaining unauthorized access to an organization’s data, is what keeps CIOs awake at night. Such a breach can quickly turn into a public relations nightmare and result in lost business and steep fines from regulatory agencies. While Apache Kafka® supports modern authentication, authorization and encryption standards, securing Apache Kafka can be challenging and requires experience. At Confluent, we have the deepest Kafka expertise in the industry, which enables us to deliver enterprise-grade security for Apache Kafka in Confluent Cloud™. You can rest assured your cluster and data are secured while we take care of the operational details.
