Immuta Adds Policy Enforcement to Unity Catalog in Databricks Lakehouse Platform | Company


Immutathe leader in data access and data security, today announced that it has strengthened its partnership with Databricks by integrating its market-leading policy enforcement engine into Databricks Unity Catalog. Now, Databricks customers can easily and consistently enforce data access policy across workspaces without allowing Databricks workspace administrators to override or change permissions on said policies. Immuta is one of the first Databricks partners to integrate its policy engine into Unity Catalog, building customer confidence through improved and consistent policy management and enforcement.

“We are in the midst of a paradigm shift where increasing data volumes, policies and consumers are pushing organizations to compute and leverage that data in new and different ways, but access control hasn’t not tracked,” said Steve Touw, CTO. , Immuta. “With our industry-leading policy engine solving the management challenges associated with data policies and Databricks’ Unity catalog solving application problems, we are providing the missing link to access control in the modern stack for the age of privacy.”

Combining the Databricks Unity catalog with Immuta’s industry-leading data access platform enables comprehensive data governance with granular data security. While most policy engines leverage role-based access control (RBAC), which delimits access rights based on individual user roles within an enterprise, Immuta’s policy engine used attribute-based access controls (ABAC), which provide access rights based on user, environment, or resource attributes, greatly reducing policy complexity. For example, a major global automaker had over 400 pages of role-based rules on data, but with Immuta they reduced that to just 54 attribute-based policies, which can be applied at scale. This new integration with Databricks Unity Catalog makes ABAC policies orchestrated by Immuta even more powerful and non-invasive, taking the solution to new levels and enabling data platform teams to unlock data sharing use cases across different spaces. Databricks working and metastores.

“The goal of our Unity catalog is to make it easier for our customers to discover, audit and manage data assets in one place to meet their compliance and privacy needs,” said Jonathan Keller, Senior Director of Product Management at Databricks. “Immuta’s automated and secure data policy engine is a key part of this data governance puzzle, and we are excited to join forces to contribute to our efforts to simplify the process of securing and governing data. data and AI assets across multiple clouds.”

This integration reinforces Immuta as one of the most innovative data access and data security leaders on the market. Continually striving to add value and simplify secure data access, Immuta addresses key challenges in managing policies and delimiting access at scale.
