Immuta | November 30, 2021

Data Stacks
Immuta, the leader in universal cloud data access control, today announced the general availability of Immuta software as a service (SaaS) deployment. Immuta SaaS, which recently received its SOC 2 Type 2 Certification, enables data teams to automate data access control while eliminating the need to self-manage and maintain the deployment.

Immuta’s SaaS deployment is a fully managed cloud service designed to improve data security by enabling data teams to register data from one or multiple cloud data platforms and be completely operational within minutes, guaranteeing customers a 99.9% SLA uptime for core functionality.

Immuta’s SaaS deployment is available in North America and EMEA for Snowflake, Databricks, Starburst, Azure Synapse, Amazon Redshift, and coming soon for Google BigQuery and Trino. It includes Immuta’s full suite of capabilities, including:

  • Universal data cloud compatibility
  • Scalable, attribute-based access controls
  • Dynamic policy enforcement and auditing
  • Data masking, anonymization, and advanced privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs)

“We’re seeing huge demand from global customers who are migrating data analytics to the cloud and looking for a fully hosted data access control platform that enables them to establish controls for sensitive data to meet their regulatory and internal security requirements,” said Matt Carroll, CEO, Immuta. “Immuta’s SaaS deployment offers customers the opportunity to experience the power of fine-grained data access control and unlock the full potential of their data safely and securely with zero maintenance or infrastructure costs.”

One of Immuta’s early SaaS customers is PumpJack Dataworks, which enables customers such as the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and MLS’s Inter Miami CF to manage their fan data.

“Our Customer Data Platform is tuned specifically for the sports industry to help teams, leagues, and federations unify and manage all of their fan data across their entire ecosystem. Our customers demand strict requirements across governance, user access controls, anonymization, and audit capabilities, ensuring that a layer of trust and protection is extended across their global fan communities,” said Tom Tercek, co-founder and chief strategy officer, Pumpjack Dataworks. “In this dynamic privacy environment, Immuta’s SaaS deployment enables us to provide the highest standards of protection for fan data.”

Billie, a fast-growing fintech organization based in Berlin that is reinventing how small-and-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) handle invoices, adopted Immuta’s SaaS deployment to rapidly automate data access control and data protection. According to Igor Chtivelband, Billie’s co-founder and VP of data and CRM, “If we didn’t have Immuta, then Billie’s expansion as a business wouldn’t be possible. I’m not sure how we could do it without Immuta.”

With Immuta’s SaaS deployment, users can start experiencing the power of dynamic, fine-grained access control faster than ever. A recent GigaOm report found that Immuta’s attribute-based access controls require 75x fewer policy changes and offer significant cost savings compared to competitive solutions. Immuta was also the first data access control solution to be included on Snowflake Partner Connect.

Customers can get started using a free trial to easily convert to a production deployment while making it easier to support complex use cases like and enjoy maintenance-free deployment. For those unable to leverage Immuta SaaS, Immuta’s fully containerized self-managed deployment option enables customers to control their own cloud environment.

Searchable.ai announces Constellation, a Unified Data Platform for productivity workers and their teams

Searchable.ai | May 02, 2022

Searchable.ai announces Constellation, their unified data platform that brings together all the data and information that knowledge workers need, in one place. Searchable.ai launched in 2019 as a search company that enabled users to simultaneously search across all their cloud and local files. In building this capability, several of its partners saw the greater potential in the company's technology to connect the wealth of data that knowledge workers and their teams create and utilize. Given the critical challenges businesses face in efficiently sharing information across teams and platforms, Searchable.ai has invested its resources and latest round of funding into building out Constellation, a unified data platform for teams. Since January, the company has expanded its suite of integrations to include even more essential workplace apps, including Trello, Asana, Jira, Notion, and Confluence. The company continues to integrate with additional apps and services and will soon expand its support to design apps like Figma and code repositories like Github. By mid-2022, Constellation will connect with over 30 of the most used cloud applications. While Searchable.ai initially focused on unifying data and information from files, such as those created with Microsoft Office and Google Workspace apps, as well as PDFs, Constellation makes it possible to unify user-inputted SaaS data. Structured information from Jira tickets and Trello cards, for example, as well as conversations in apps like Slack, can now be searchable and shareable. Additionally, Constellation's Live Sync technology means data is constantly being updated and refreshed, so users always have access to the latest information. Built for scale, Constellation supports an unlimited amount of data and is engineered with enterprise-grade security. Eventually, Searchable.ai will enable developers to access the Constellation framework for their own apps and services, including corporations who may want to ingest this data into their own repositories. "Google, Bing, Baidu, and others aggregated web information and made it searchable; Snowflake and Databricks brought together corporate data for advanced business intelligence. But nothing analogous exists for knowledge workers. Constellation unifies work data into a single view to make knowledge instantly accessible and actionable for teams." Brian Shin, co-founder and CEO of Searchable.ai For now, Searchable.ai will leverage Constellation to extend its end-user capabilities beyond search. The company will soon be releasing Collections, a way for users to assemble groups of files, email, and cloud data in a central space where others can add, find, and access what they need for their work.
