Snowflake is a powerful enterprise Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, and like all SaaS technologies, it is particularly important to administer it correctly, from the perspective of both security and access control and of monitoring and attributing resource usage. Otherwise, costs and security vulnerabilities can quickly pile up as users, roles, and accounts increasingly multiply. In this course, discover how to manage the accounts and users within an organization. Then, explore how Snowflake allows users to configure various properties on objects, using parameters. Next, use resource monitors to impose limits on the number of credits consumed by Snowflake and examine what happens if that limit is breached. Learn how to configure single sign-on using Otka and implement federated authentication. Finally, perform data masking and investigate how Snowflake allows you to redact and censor data at the column level using masking polices.
