Immuta enforces access control policies automatically on every query, and captures rich audit logs so data teams can easily keep track of security and compliance with rules and regulations.
Transparent Enforcement at Query Time
Immuta runs alongside your cloud data platform and is transparent to data consumers without impacting performance. Data consumers can use their existing tools, editors, workbenches, notebooks without impacting their working processes.
Streamlined Data Request Workflows
Immuta brings data operations and data consumers together to shrink data processing timelines from weeks or months to seconds. Self-service workflows enable data consumers to request access to data, acknowledge approved usage purposes, request access control changes, and propose new data collaboration projects.
Show Data Changes Over Time
Data is constantly changing but you need to be able to look back in time – whether for audit requests or analysis purposes. Immuta captures snapshots of your data over time, allowing you to understand how policy changes impact your projects’ outputs.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a data audit trail?A data audit trail is a record of events or actions taken on data over a period of time. These events or actions may include data access requests, whether those requests were granted, who or what initiated the data request, the date and time of the request, the purpose of the request, and any changes made to the data. Immuta also tracks policy changes, data usage, and precise queries as part of its data audit trails.
Why is a data audit log important?As data use becomes increasingly regulated by federal laws like GDPR and HIPAA, industry and employment regulations, and other legally enforceable guidelines, data audit logs are critical to proving compliance. By serving as a chronological record of data access and use, data audit logs can protect individuals and organizations from liability or protect data subjects from personal harm stemming from data misuse. Data audit logs provide a level of necessary transparency in an era in which the collection and use of sensitive data is central to business-driving analytics.
