Data Access Policies are the Bottleneck

For every piece of data, there are policies that dictate who can see that data and what they can do with it. With more data sources and users, complexity increases exponentially and creates huge barriers to data access.


Current Solutions are Ineffective

Current data security and access solutions can feel like the wild west.
They are based on traditional role-based models that predate cloud-
native data infrastructure and require specialized engineering
resources to implement policies.

Native controls with SQL roles


  • Slow time to data
  • Limits cloud ROI
  • Central IT bottleneck
Security vendors using
role-based models


  • Slow time to data
  • Increased risk
  • Unsupported by platform vendor
Data copies replicated for every user


  • Slow time to data
  • High cost to manage
  • Increased risk

Immuta’s Unique Approach to Secure Data Access

Scale data access policies

CAPABILITY: Flexible decision points using roles, attributes, and purposes

WHAT’S UNIQUE: Immuta delivers the industry’s only dynamic, attribute-first access control model for data infrastructure

METRIC: Dynamic policies reduce management burden by 75X*

It took 96 policies to filter 12 tables using Ranger, versus 1 policy in Immuta to filter hundreds to thousands of tables. This increased time to data from 4 weeks to instant access.

Global Manufacturer
Share and use data safely

CAPABILITY: Detailed auditing and reports for compliance stakeholders

WHAT’S UNIQUE: Immuta’s powerful access control model simplifies policy management by 75X making it easy to understand all data use

METRIC: Increase permitted cloud data use cases to 100%

When we show the GSO (global security office) the capabilities of Immuta, they say oh wow. We never thought there is somebody who can do something like this, and they definitely were impressed, including my boss, who obviously was very supportive of onboarding Immuta into our technology stack.

Global HR Services Company
Plain Language Data Policies

CAPABILITY: Plain language data policies for business and technical users

WHAT’S UNIQUE: Immuta’s flexible policy management enables business or technical stakeholders to author scalable policies in plain language with stunning ease, and allows data platform engineers to manage policies as code.

METRIC: IT only has to manually approve 5% of requests – the rest are automated.

Delegating the management into the hands of the people who are actually responsible for the data was a huge and critical aspect from a business perspective, because at the moment it just doesn't work.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Immuta?

Immuta is the market leader in data security and access, providing data teams one universal platform to control access to analytical data sets in the cloud. Only Immuta can automate access to data by discovering, securing, and monitoring data. Data-driven organizations around the world trust Immuta to speed time to data, safely share more data with more users, and mitigate the risk of data leaks and breaches. Founded in 2015, Immuta is headquartered in Boston, MA.

What is the importance of data governance?

Effective data governance is critical for ensuring that an organization’s data remains consistent and trustworthy and that it can’t be misused. It’s becoming increasingly important as organizations face new data privacy regulations and rely more and more on data analytics to help optimize operations and drive decision-making across the business.

What are the benefits of automated data management?

Automated data management helps organizations streamline enterprise-wide data management tasks and is designed to speed up business operations and reduce costs. Automating data management also allows organizations to make sense of large quantities of data by mechanizing redundant work and leaving higher-level tasks to people.

What are the differences between Immuta vs. Privacera?

Although Immuta and Privacera both offer data access control capabilities, according to a study by GigaOm, Immuta’s more dynamic approach reduces policy burden by 75x compared to Privacera, which runs on Apache Ranger. This is primarily due to the fact that Immuta leverages attribute-based access control (ABAC) to make fine-grained access decisions at query runtime, while Apache Ranger uses role-based access control with object tagging (OT-RBAC). The latter is a legacy approach that allows policy creation based on tags, but is inherently static and requires far more policies to manage evolving data needs. Meanwhile, ABAC takes a multi-dimensional approach to policy creation and enforcement, making it more dynamic and scalable. Therefore, Privacera’s access control capabilities are far more limiting and require substantially more manual effort by data teams to manage than Immuta, which is built to grow and evolve at the speed and scale of modern data needs.
