According to Immuta, the integration will solve technical and operational challenges associated with cloud-based or hybrid analytics architectures by simplifying the management of user identity, authorization and fine-grained data access controls in cloud, multi-cloud, and hybrid environments.
“Data-driven leaders are shifting to cloud and multi-cloud environments to tap the unique capabilities of different platforms, which create complex data environments that can be extremely challenging to secure and protect. When it comes to modern cloud analytics, every organization must not only authenticate their user base, but also enforce data governance policies to ensure each user has access only to authorized data. Through our integration with Okta, we are providing a single pane of glass to marry authentication, authorization, and data access controls to better protect and operationalize data,” said Matthew Carroll, CEO of Immuta.
As announced, Immuta claims that their joint customers can use the integrated product to build modern architectures for data cataloging, access control as well benefits from specific features of the integration including, Okta lifecycle management workflows, Okta SCIM, Immuta dynamic policy creation, fine-grained access and security as well as Immuta’s rich audit logs and reporting.
“At Okta, we aim to empower any organization to seamlessly and securely use the best technologies for their business. Immuta’s fine-grained approach to data security and access control enables organizations to take securing their data and cloud analytics a step further. We’re excited to be investors in Immuta and to provide tremendous value to our joint customers handling sensitive data,” said Monty Gray, SVP Corporate Development at Okta.
