Immuta Integrates with Snowflake’s Data Lineage

Immuta | June 15, 2022

Immuta, the market leader in data access and data security, announces an expanded partnership with Snowflake, the Data Cloud company, allowing Immuta customers to use Snowflake's data lineage feature to automatically propagate data classification tags across the data lifecycle, removing manual tagging and making it easier and simpler for customers to enact data policies. Immuta is one of the first partners to use Snowflake's data lineage solution to increase consumer confidence through improved data security and uniform policy enforcement. “Data is power in our modern business landscape due to its ability to improve insights and drive competitive decision-making for companies. But, today’s complex data environment makes it challenging for organizations to quickly identify and derive value from their data, while also managing data security and access. Mapping and tagging data through data lineage is a critical piece to this data management puzzle, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Snowflake on this initiative as part of our continued support of their cloud data management vision.” Steve Touw, CTO, Immuta Growing digitization, worldwide privacy standards, and a remote workforce have resulted in an explosion of data, data users, and policy. Therefore, today's enterprises confront worldwide data access control and data security concerns, making policy enforcement at scale challenging to administer. Data lineage — the act of mapping and categorizing data based on its provenance and where it flows so that policy can follow – assists companies in better managing these data security and access requirements. Tarik Dwiek, Senior Director of Technology Alliances at Snowflake said that “Customers rely on Snowflake to help maximize the value of their data. But in order to accomplish this, organizations must have insights into what their data is, where it came from and where it is going. Our new data lineage capabilities can provide customers with access to faster and safer data analytics, while Immuta’s data access and security capabilities help ensure that the right people can access the right data at the right time.” Understanding data lineage is becoming more critical for data quality and governance. The issue is that crucial information linked with data lineage is often lost during data migration and transformation. Snowflake's new data lineage capabilities aids in the tracking of needed information, and with the Immuta connection, will be able to automatically disseminate the tagging required for data policy enforcement with no human coding. Therefore, data teams may extract more value from their data while still preserving their data assets and complying with privacy requirements.
