Press Release from Aginity

Companies using Aginity and who have enabled OAuth on their Snowflake account, will no longer store database passwords in Aginity Team because an access token issued by Snowflake upon login will be used for all subsequent processes and actions for Snowflake.

This powerful authorization process comes with a number of benefits, including strengthened security for user credentials and the ability to centrally revoke user access.

"We are committed to continually providing ways for our clients to improve security and flexibly manage user access in our products," said Jeff Grossman, Vice President of Product and Customer Solutions at Aginity. "We're excited to be the first SQL analysis tool to connect to Snowflake and to support the enhanced security benefits of OAuth."

SQL teams can download Aginity Team and start leveraging this functionality today.
