Immuta, the top supplier of data access and data security, announced today an extended cooperation with Starburst, the analytics anywhere business, to meet expanding data access control and security needs for contemporary data infrastructures. The Immuta plugin, which is now included with each Starburst Enterprise instance, enables smooth connection with a customer's Immuta installation. With quick, secure data access, the collaboration allows enterprises to harness the power and flexibility of data mesh architectures.
In order to manage their data and analytics in the face of an increasing number of data sources and greater agility needs, many enterprises are using domain-driven data ownership and architectures (data mesh). However, due to the decentralized nature of a data mesh, companies can find it challenging to administer consistent data access control and policy enforcement at scale. The streamlined, built-in Immuta support allows Starburst users from any domain to query data from any platform or cloud through Starburst Enterprise. Customers can access vital data faster with Immuta enforcing data access regulations at runtime, while remaining certain that they are conforming to business and regulatory standards with comprehensive and simple-to-use access controls.
“We’re seeing more organizations adopt a data mesh architecture to reduce pipeline complexity and make data infrastructure more flexible and agile, but key challenges around secure access and governance remain. As part of our continued support for the data mesh vision, this enhanced integration with Starburst arms users with the necessary tools to scale secure data access and policy management through automation, increase agility across teams by empowering more stakeholders to manage policy, and easily prove compliant data use at any time. This is an important step towards delivering more value from even the most sensitive data.”
Steven Touw, co-founder and chief technology officer at Immuta
Matt Fuller, Co-founder and VP of Product at Starburst said that “Customers rely on Starburst as the analytics engine for all their distributed, decentralized data, but as data sources and volumes increase, creating data access policies and enforcing them across the enterprise presents a major challenge. By integrating Immuta’s data security capabilities with Starburst, organizations can ensure that the right people are able to access the right data at the right time. Expanding this partnership with Immuta will enable organizations to deliver faster, safer, more cost-effective data analytics wherever their data resides.”
