Liberate Your Jupyter and Zeppelin Notebooks from Github
June 23, 2020
Now that remote work has become the norm, companies are grappling with how to manage their data science assets securely in this new #WFH environment. For many companies, GitHub repositories may seem to be an obvious option for collaboration among remote employees.
GitHub is great for storing and sharing code, but not for storing and sharing notebooks. Every week we at Zepl hear about people storing their plain-text passwords in notebooks then committing them to GitHub. (Yes, you read that correctly.) One of our customers recently confided in us, “We have a lot of exposure with GitHub. I feel like we’re a security breach waiting to happen.”
As companies look for an enterprise-grade solution for storing and sharing their notebooks, they are turning to Zepl’s data science platform. Zepl’s SaaS product provides out-of-the box security for both Jupyter and Zeppelin notebooks:
- SSO and keychain: Zepl utilizes SSO and keychain encryption to ensure that you will never commit plain-text passwords to GitHub again.
- Role-based access control: Zepl allows you to control who can access your notebooks based on admin, manager, and member privileges. You also have a wide range of action permissions around reading, writing, deleting and other key activities.
- Data encryption: All network connections to and from Zepl are encrypted using TLS, including both data and user access. Zepl provides encryption at rest for all stored notebooks in an encrypted data store.
