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.

Unified Audit Logs

Immuta automatically monitors and logs all actions in your data platform to prove compliant data use and investigate incidents. Data teams can track requests, policy changes, usage, queries executed, and more. It’s all centralized and can be made available to a logging or SIEM tool.

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.
  • What is a unified audit log?

    A unified audit log monitors every data-related action or activity across an entire data ecosystem. This provides users with the ability to continuously monitor data use in their system, regardless of the platform in which the data is being accessed. With the ability to view data audit trails from across platforms, organizations can better adhere to security and compliance regulations. Internal and external protection can be maintained through both proactive and reactive action against improper data access and usage.
  • 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.
  • What are the benefits of automatic data policy enforcement?

    Automatic data policy enforcement ensures that access control policies are applied on each and every query, while simultaneously capturing complete and accessible audit logs. This automated approach allows users to seamlessly access their existing data environments with the reassurance that they are adhering to governance and regulatory standards. Automated policy enforcement also streamlines the duties of data teams and legal and compliance departments, creating a more safe and manageable data environment.
