In whole, there could be as much as 5 collaborators and their information is saved in an AWS Glue Information Catalog. When anybody runs a question over this information, Clear Rooms will learn it, wherever it lives, after which the service will routinely apply the preset guidelines to guard every participant’s uncooked information. Every desk can have its personal guidelines, which prohibit the kind of question that’s allowed. Encrypted information will stay encrypted when these queries are run.
