There is only one Data Cloud. Snowflake’s founders started from scratch and designed a data platform built for the cloud that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. But it didn’t stop there. They engineered Snowflake to power the Data Cloud, where thousands of organizations unlock the value of their data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance. This is our vision: a world with endless insights to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today and reveal the possibilities of tomorrow.

  Snowflake is laser focused on making security better with actionable data and shared responsibility. 

Every engineer owns the security of the code they produce. The Cloud & Application Security team equips engineers with the right knowledge, tools, testing and support, at the right time, to create secure designs and implementations every single day.
