Nov 17, 2020

Boston, MA, November 17, 2020 — Immuta, the automated data governance company, announced that the company has won the Databricks ISV Rising Star Award today at the Databricks Data + AI Summit Europe. The award, which recognizes Immuta for partnership momentum across regions, marks a successful first year of the partnership announced in November 2019, during which the two companies have attracted dozens of global, data-driven organizations who want to maximize the value of their data while automating data security and privacy.

“Immuta has been a strategic partner to Databricks, helping our customers extract maximum value from their data – even the most sensitive – by automating security, access control and governance,” said Michael Hoff, SVP Business Development and Partners at Databricks. “With Immuta’s expanded support for R and Scala languages, and our introduction of SQL Analytics for BI use cases, we can deliver analytics and governance solutions to more customers across EMEA and North America.”

Immuta also announced enhancements to its native integration with Databricks’ Unified Data Platform including R and Scala language support, enabling more analysts and data scientists to work with sensitive data. Immuta now supports more languages and cluster types for customers in Databricks environments, while protecting against destructive DDL commands (like DROP) on tables.

Over the past year, Immuta and Databricks, the data and AI company, have partnered to empower data teams across the world to analyze and model sensitive data in the cloud in a compliant, policy-driven, automated way. Since introducing its native offering for Databricks earlier this year, Immuta has expanded its roster of Databricks customers to include a top five global video streaming service, a top three global automotive manufacturer, a global payments company, one of world’s largest toy manufacturers, several large US technology companies, one of the five largest transportation and logistics companies and several of the world’s largest global analytics companies. For these organizations, Immuta plays an integral role in providing fine-grained access control and advanced privacy and security features for Databricks-powered analytics and data science initiatives. 

“Over the past year, our goal has been to empower data teams using Databricks to unlock the value of scalable analytics and data science by improving control over and automating governance of their sensitive data,” said Chris Devaney, Vice President, Alliances at Immuta. “We are honored to be recognized by our valued partner for our quick success in doing just that. We look forward to working with Databricks and our joint customers to help them maximize data access, security and governance for years to come.”
