The new update makes it easy to orchestrate policy for integrated clients in your Starburst environment without having to rewrite queries or change workflows.
Immuta, a leader in data security, today announced its latest enhancements to its integration with Starburst, the leading analytics company, offering a more seamless operation between the two platforms for Help integrated customers meet the growing needs for data mesh access and security. This update comes as Immuta continues to see strong user adoption of Starburst, including leading organizations such as ADP and Thomson Reuters.
In response to the growing number of data sources and the need for increased agility, organizations are adopting the data mesh to effectively manage their data and analytics. However, the decentralized nature of a data mesh presents challenges in maintaining consistent data access control and policy enforcement, especially as organizations grow. The latest integration offers a streamlined and efficient solution, allowing teams to access policy-driven data directly in their Starburst or Trino catalogs without rewriting those question or change any workflows. Immuta policies are simply translated into Starburst (Trino) rules and permissions and applied directly to tables within those systems for simple and seamless operability between Immuta and Starburst users.
“Since the beginning of our partnership with Starburst, our focus has been to address the growing needs for security and data access control for modern data architectures, especially as more organizations adopt the data mesh architecture,” said Matthew Carroll, CEO of Immuta. “With these improvements, we empower our customers to maximize the power and flexibility of the data mesh with fast and secure data access, while we continue to improve our integration to seamlessly to meet changing customer demands.”
With Immuta’s powerful data security capabilities, Starburst users can now access data from their respective domains while maintaining tight control over data security. Immuta’s data access policies are enforced in real-time, ensuring customers can quickly access important data while complying with business and regulatory policies. The data security and access control capabilities provided by Immuta are comprehensive and easy to use, giving organizations confidence in their data management and governance practices. The main features of this update include:
- Discovery and classification of sensitive data. Immuta makes it easy for data owners to build new data products by automating the discovery of sensitive data in millions of fields using over 60 pre-built classifiers, custom classifiers, and domain-specific classifiers. Users can easily profile registered tags such as PII, PHI to assess their sensitive data footprint and customizable workflows that enable data owners to effectively deliver data as a product and facilitate innovations.
- Scalable security and data access control. Immuta enables federated data governance and simplifies policy development using plain language or data policies as code for seamless collaboration between data owners. Immuta enforces policies on a global and individual level within data owner domains. Attribute-based access control (ABAC) ensures scalable data access without paper clutter, while dynamic data masking maintains a balance between privacy and utility for authorized users.
- Continuous data security monitoring. Data and security teams can leverage timely insights into data access and user activity with anomaly indicators for faster risk detection and remediation and proactive actions. Immuta enables data security posture management through an analytics engine with sensitivity levels and risk profile indicators to protect and mitigate security threats.
“Our integration with Immuta allows data platform teams to discover, protect and monitor data for threat analysis, even in the most complex IT environments, in real time,” said Harrison Johnson, director of technology partnerships at Starburst. “These latest integration updates are important because they allow Starburst customers to maximize the value of their cloud investments by enabling the most efficient and secure data mesh architectures.”
