Does Snowflake Data Sharing add any real security?

Snowflake is a cloud database like Google BigQuery or Amazon Redshift. Unlike them, however, it markets a “Secure Data Sharing” feature.

They go to some effort (including a full “Data Sharing for Dummies” book) to position this as something unique. In terms of clearly defining who has access to what in a user-friendly way, maybe they are correct.

But does this add any extra security above simply sharing a BigQuery dataset or creating a read-only Redshift user?
