About Immuta

Immuta provides a consistent point of access for all data analysis and dynamically protects your data with complex policies -- enforced based on the user accessing the data and the logic of the policy -- creating efficient digital data exchanges compliant with organizations' regulations with complete visibility of policy enforcement.

Benefits

  • Unification: All your data remains in-place; however, it is virtually unified within Immuta for a single point of access.
  • Data Policies: Data is hidden, masked, redacted, and anonymized in the control plane based on the attributes of the users accessing the data and the purpose under which they are acting.
  • Authoritative Virtual Data Sources: Complex joins and data transformations can be exposed in Immuta as authoritative virtual data sources for downstream users.
  • Audit Consistency: All activities are audited in a consistent manner across data silos from within the virtual layer. This simplifies audit log analysis and increases the richness of audit logs.
