Learning path context

Balancing privacy and utility of data is one of the many challenges faced by data analysts and compliance professionals. Frequently, privacy restrictions cause friction among various departments when sharing and requesting access to data, which results in bottlenecks and inefficient use of time and resources. In many organizations, it can take months for analysts to receive access to data they request.

Immuta works to reduce this friction and inefficiency by ensuring that privacy is maintained through simple language policy builders that automatically enforce restrictions on data based on user attributes when users request access. Immuta also allows users to collaborate, share, and retrieve data from a single access point, eliminating the need (and danger of copying data.

In order to use Immuta effectively, it is essential that all users understand the principles of Immuta and the various features the product has to offer.
