GigaOm Data Access Control Report: Immuta ABAC vs. Apache Ranger RBAC

GigaOm cloud data security report finds Immuta’s data access control 75X more efficient than Ranger’s.

The data access control debate over role-based access control vs. attribute-based access control is over.

In a head-to-head comparison by GigaOm, Immuta’s attribute-based access control (ABAC) required 75X fewer policy changes than Ranger’s role-based access control (RBAC) to accomplish the same security objectives. The downstream impact of choosing ABAC vs. RBAC is enormous, with the attribute-based approach increasing cloud ROI by more than $300,000.

In this report, you’ll learn:

  • How Immuta’s ABAC model compares to Apache Ranger’s RBAC
  • How RBAC and ABAC stack up in both simple and advanced data access control scenarios
  • How data access policy changes translate to time and opportunity costs
