Chicago, IL. December 12, 2019— Aginity, the only active analytics catalog company, announced today that Aginity Premium is the first SQL query tool enabling customers to authorize access to Snowflake, the data warehouse built for the cloud, using OAuth.
Companies using Aginity and who have enabled OAuth on their Snowflake account will no longer store database passwords in Aginity Premium because an access token issued by Snowflake upon login will be used for all subsequent processes and actions for Snowflake.
This powerful authorization process comes with a number of benefits, including strengthened security for user credentials and the ability to centrally revoke user access.
“We are committed to continually providing ways for our clients to improve security and flexibly manage user access in our products,” said Jeff Grossman, Vice President of Product and Customer Solutions at Aginity. “We’re excited to be the first SQL analysis tool to connect to Snowflake and to support the enhanced security benefits of OAuth.”
We are inviting SQL teams to join our Aginity Premium and start leveraging this functionality today.
