Policy Authoring

Immuta allows cross-functional teams involved with data security to work together to write, apply, and maintain data policies in plain language or as code.

Accelerate secure data access
Before Immuta
  • Highly technical skills, including advanced SQL, required to create policies
  • Massive policy burden from having to manually maintain roles
  • Policy creation and management centralized to data engineering teams
After Immuta
  • Simplify policy creation by allowing authoring in plain language
  • Reduce policy burden by 75x with Immuta’s ABAC. Learn more
  • Distributed creation and management of policies across multiple stakeholders
Purpose-Based Access Control (PBAC)

Create dynamic PBAC policies that are enforced based on permitted data use for each user with easy-to-use consent workflows that audit all aspects of usage.

Purpose-Based Access Control
Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC)

Author dynamic ABAC policies using attributes such as geography, time and date, clearance level, and purpose. A single Immuta ABAC policy can replace over 100 roles and policy definitions.

Attribute-Based Access Control
Plain Language Data Policies

Author policies in plain language so all security and governance stakeholders can understand how data is protected, without the need for specialized engineering resources.


Create auditable, reproducible governance configurations using code to enable change management, rollbacks, and testing.

Distributed Stewardship

Empower a wide range of policy stakeholders, from business to technical users, to manage data policies without data engineering expertise.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is access control and why is it important?

Data access control is used to protect a company’s data by allowing access to authorized database users and restricting access to unauthorized users. If used correctly, it offers a variety of business benefits including data governance, compliance, data-rich application development, increased efficiency of data analytics, and more value derived from sensitive data.

What is fine-grained access control?

Fine-grained access control is a method of managing data access that uses specific and different policies to restrict access at the row-, column-, and cell-level, ensuring that sensitive information is thoroughly protected. With fine-grained access control, each data point has a unique access control policy, making protection measures more precise and allowing data with varying regulatory requirements to be securely stored and used together.

What’s the difference between RBAC and ABAC?
  • RBAC permits or restricts data access based on the privileges associated with a user’s role within an organization. Privileges can only be changed or added if a new role is created.
  • ABAC is more dynamic. It permits or restricts data access based on a variety of independently provisioned and environmental characteristics, such as assigned user, action, and environmental attributes.
What are attribute-based access control implementation best practices?

Attribute-based access control (ABAC) is a dynamic and multidimensional approach to data security. When implementing ABAC, it is best to ensure you have a tool that enables simple, scalable policy creation and enforcement in order to avoid unnecessary manual work or role-explosion. The ABAC model should also be flexible, with the ability to adapt to the ever-changing world of compliance and governance. Automation, universal cloud compatibility, and customized permissions can work in tandem to provide users with safe and effective access to their data. Immuta’s attribute-based access control model provides these features and more.
