Zero Trust

The digital world is now so fundamentally insecure that a zero-trust strategy is warranted anywhere computing is taking place — with one exception: data science. It is not yet possible to accept the tenets of zero trust while also enabling data science activities and the AI systems they give rise to.

About Matthew

Since its founding in 2015, Immuta has quickly become the leader in data security and data access. Through strategic partnerships with best-in-class cloud data platforms, including Snowflake, Databricks, Starburst, AWS, Google, and Microsoft Azure, Immuta enables the world’s largest global companies and jurisdictions to protect and share their most sensitive data and tackle complex data access, privacy, and security challenges.

Before co-founding Immuta, Matthew served honorably as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Army, including tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. After his military service, Matthew served as CTO of CSC’s Defense Intelligence Group, where he led data fusion and analytics programs, and advised the U.S. Government on data management and analytics issues.

While supporting the U.S. intelligence community, Matthew analyzed some of the world’s most complex data sets and solved challenging data management, analytics and intelligence problems in the field as a forward-deployed engineer.

During that time, he quickly realized the power of data and the need to ensure that it is accessible to only those who need it, for the right reasons, and in the right form. From the U.S. government to popular streaming services, any organization that wants to compete in today’s data-driven world must enable real-time data analysis. However, the major challenge is doing so safely and securely while minimizing complexity and risk. Enter Immuta.

Matthew graduated from Brandeis University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Biology.

Five years ago, data teams were siloed and focused on helping users find and query more data. But today, data consumers exist across organizations and are going much further — transforming data, collaborating with cross-company teams, and creating new data products, models, and pipelines at a rapid pace. This new era of democratized data use is driving unprecedented adoption of cloud platforms and data exchanges, but the future has to be secure and compliant.
