Frictionless Hybrid Data Access for Clouds

Learn how Paxata delivers firewall-friendly connectivity to on-premises data for customers.

Enterprises today are rapidly adopting the cloud, while continuing to retain sensitive business data inside the firewall. Cloud ISVs often get requests to connect these database silos (big or relational) using technologies such as VPN or SSH tunneling. However, these approaches are difficult to manage and not engineered for accessing business data from the cloud.

Cloud ISVs are looking to deliver a secure and frictionless data access experience for their customers. Hear directly from Paxata about how the company leverages Progress Hybrid Data Connectivity to securely connect hybrid environments for customers¾without requiring network changes.

Watch this on-demand webinar to learn:

  • Common hybrid data access scenarios for cloud applications
  • Common approaches to accessing business data behind the firewall
  • How our vendor agnostic gateway allows cloud ISVs to securely connect to data behind the firewall
  • How customers can access on-premises data and a wider range of data sources for data integration, quality, cleansing, shaping and enrichment with the Cloud version of Paxata's self-service data preparation platform.
