Immuta + Unity Catalog: The Next Frontier of Scalable Data Security

The introduction of Databricks Unity Catalog gave Databricks customers a unified governance layer for data and AI within the platform. But today’s workloads require a high degree of granularity and scalability that cannot be compromised, especially when sensitive data is involved.

That’s where Immuta’s native integration with Unity Catalog comes in. At a high level, Unity Catalog provides underlying controls while Immuta adds a data security layer that orchestrates those primitives, and simplifies the whole process of writing and managing data policies at scale.

You might be wondering – how exactly does Immuta’s integration with Unity Catalog work? And more importantly, why do you need it?

In this white paper, Immuta Co-Founder and CTO Steve Touw, and Databricks Senior Director of Product Management Jonathan Keller break down how Immuta and and Unity Catalog work together, going into detail about:

  • The layers of cloud frontiers and Unity Catalog primitives
  • Why you need scalable data security, and why now
  • How to solve a realistic data security scenario using Immuta and Unity Catalog
