With great data power comes great data responsibility. Controlling who can access what data for analytical use can be a huge challenge for data teams, especially as they move to cloud data platforms. Immuta and Okta have partnered to solve this problem.
Simplified Identity Management and Authorization for Analytics Data
Immuta has integrated its Automated Data Governance platform with Okta’s Identity Cloud and System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM), an open standard that enables automated user provisioning to multiple cloud services. Immuta integrates with Identity Cloud and SCIM to extend identity management and authorization to data and analytics platforms, including Immuta’s expanding network of leading cloud data platforms, such as Snowflake, Databricks, and Starburst.
Fine-Grained Data Access
Control and Security
Legacy, role-based access control approaches are not sufficient or scalable within cloud or hybrid analytics environments. This means DataOps teams must copy data and maintain complex libraries of user roles to ensure strong security and compliance. Immuta with Okta solves this problem by extending role-based access with dynamic, attribute-based data security policies. Joint customers can build intelligent data policies that dynamically adapt data views — at the row-, column-, or cell-level — based not just on role, but on the data itself, user attributes or the purpose of analysis or modeling.
“The combination of Okta and Immuta allows us to confidently authenticate a diverse set of users and authorize different levels of analyses, while preserving privacy and ensuring compliance with regulations and contractual data rights.”
