Benefits of Immuta + Unity Catalog

Unity Catalog lays the foundation for data governance and security with a core set of capabilities and APIs. Immuta leverages those primitives to achieve the goal of abstracting the complexities of managing data security so that teams can collaborate more easily and Databricks can scale more easily across the organization.

How the Immuta + Unity Catalog Integration Works

Immuta delivers data security for the Databricks Data Intelligence Platform, including Databricks clusters and Databricks SQL, through Unity Catalog. Unity Catalog lays the foundation for data governance and access control across Databricks workloads, and Immuta augments and scales those controls by separating policy from platform and enabling dynamic policy orchestration.

Better Together

As a company with over a million clients doing payroll for millions of people, ADP processes a large amount of data. Databricks helps us to manage that data and Immuta plays an important role in administering security and access control. As we look to innovate with new products and implement a multi-cloud strategy, we must treat the data properly – it must be governed.

Jack Berkowitz Chief Data Officer

Unity Catalog aims to provide unified search and governance for customers’ data, analytics, and AI initiatives, and Immuta’s data security platform continues to play a key role in meeting users’ compliance and privacy needs. Now, joint customers can leverage the latest Unity Catalog features through an even more simplified process of securing and governing data and AI assets across multiple clouds.
