Organizations face the common challenge of how best to process and analyze large volumes of sensitive data to gain meaningful insights in a secure way. Data engineers and security teams struggle to give their data scientists and analysts the speed and access to the data they need to drive AI initiatives while ensuring consistent policy management, data governance, and security compliance. Azure Databricks is a first party service on Microsoft Azure that provides one-click setup, native integration with other Azure services, an interactive workspace, and enterprise-grade security to power data and AI use cases for small to large global customers.

Join Databricks and Microsoft to learn security best practices based on experiences with enterprise and regulated industry vertical customers. These best practices will help you deploy, manage and operate a secure data and AI environment. We will describe how a number of Azure-specific features fit into the Databricks model for data security. We will also provide a live demo of Azure Databricks to show examples of these capabilities and best practices in action.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Use Platform Security features for networking and storage with Azure Databricks, such as VNET Injection, No Public IPs and Encryption
