Our founding team spent over a decade working with the U.S. intelligence community, tackling some of the most complex and sensitive data governance problems. In 2015, we founded Immuta to help organizations across a range of industries harness the value of their data, but in a way that preserves data privacy and security. Since then, we’ve raised $73M from investors who believe in our mission: to enable the legal and ethical use of data.
