Security Best Practices

Hardening your Databricks deployments using security best practices helps you maintain the security of your systems and data.

Define: Whitepaper

Databricks has worked with thousands of customers to build our security best practices whitepaper that defines guidelines for security features that meet architecture requirements. This document provides a checklist of security practices, considerations and patterns that you can apply to your deployment, learned from our enterprise engagements.

Deploy: Terraform Templates

Security Reference Architecture (SRA) with Terraform templates makes deploying workspaces with Security Best Practices easy. You can programmatically deploy workspaces and the required cloud infrastructure using the official Databricks Terraform provider. These unified Terraform templates are preconfigured with hardened security settings similar to our most security-conscious customers.

Monitor: Security Analysis Tool

Security Analysis Tool (SAT) monitors your workspace hardening by reviewing the deployments against our security best practices. It programmatically verifies workspaces using standard API calls and reports deviations by severity, with links that explain how to improve your security.
