The History of Privacera

How We Started

Trusted data access has been the heart of our mission since inception. Headquartered in Fremont, California, Privacera was founded in 2016 by Balaji Ganesan and Don Bosco Durai—the creators of Apache Ranger™ and Apache Atlas™. They founded Privacera on the simple, yet critical principle that trusted data access lies at the intersection of privacy, security, and governance.
How We Grew

Trusted by Fortune 500 Companies

Trusted by leaders like you to govern and secure their critical data assets, our solution helps you adhere to government, industry, and internal enterprise regulations.

Privacera ensures the right people have the right access to the right data at the right time. All in a single, centralized location across multiple cloud services, removing the complexity of siloed, stitched-together data security processes.
