Q: Why are you asking me to integrate DataTrails?
A: DataTrails is a zero trust fabric for exchange independently verifiable trustworthy data that we can rely on. DataTrails integrates with a very simple API that means we can ingest trustworthy data and make more confident zero trust decisions.
Q: Why is DataTrails better than alternatives?
A: Why don’t I just email the data may be what you’re thinking. For a single data exchange with one vendor that may work, but continuously changing data and events won’t scale for all our suppliers that way. Losses happen when people are in the loop. Data gets delayed, goes missing in action and errors are introduced. The biggest loss is our valuable time that could be better spent doing something else. A tool to automate, set and forget is the answer – that’s DataTrails.
Q: Why not use a database instead of DataTrails?
A: Who should host, maintain and manage access? Who will on and off-board users with appropriate roles and permissions? Who is admin and can potentially corrupt records? Do you want to set up database connections to ALL your other customers in the same way? DataTrails solves these challenges.
Q: What’s in it for me to use DataTrails?
A: DataTrails gets a continuously verifiable, unbroken data record directly into the tools we use to make zero-trust decisions. Your tool will help us comply with EO14028 by directly consuming SBOMs to improve our zero-trust architecture. We are not the only company who needs to comply, by helping us you’ll help many more.
Q: How do I use DataTrails?
A: Join the partner program, set up an account and read the API documentation. It starts with one line of code! Many partners have integrated within 4 hours. UI integration work usually takes a little longer and depends on complexity of integration.
Q: What will using DataTrails cost me?
A: Just your engineering integration time. DataTrails users pay for DataTrails.
