data.world bridge

The data.world Bridge provides a customer-hosted connectivity hub where connections are outbound-only, short-lived, and highly secure. It is powered by Trustgrid, and trusted by banks, healthcare companies, and many other organizations with very strict security and compliance needs.

Customer-hosted metadata collectors and the technical lineage server do not require inbound connectivity, however data virtualization / federated query and data.world-hosted metadata collection does. The data.world Bridge enables a secure, outbound-only method for brokering those connections.

The data.world Bridge is provided by data.world, and can be implemented as a hardware appliance or a software virtual appliance (image support for AWS, vSphere, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform).
