  • Automated data governance company Immuta announced that it has secured $40 million in funding

Automated data governance company Immuta announced that it has secured $40 million in funding to extend its leadership position in the growing market for automated data governance and privacy solutions. The Series C funding round was led by new investor Intel Capital with participation from new investor Ten Eleven Ventures and existing investors DFJ Growth, Dell Technologies Capital, Greycroft, Drive Capital, and Citi Ventures.

Immuta has pioneered automated data governance with a modern and cloud-native platform for organizations that work with sensitive data subject to regulation and business rules. And Immuta’s platform automates data access control, security, and privacy compliance, ensuring each user who queries data sees only the data they’re supposed to see, for their approved purpose or role.

The company has also integrated its platform with leading cloud data and analytics platforms, including Databricks, Snowflake, and Amazon Web Services thus making it easy and frictionless for customers to deploy Immuta, see immediate value, and improve return-on-investment.

Immuta’s blue-chip enterprise customer base spans a range of industries, including financial services and fintech, insurance, healthcare, and digital health, government, manufacturing, and internet/consumer tech. And Aon — a leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement, and health solutions — recently purchased Immuta to automate data privacy and governance.

In the past year, Immuta has invested heavily in its platform by adding new privacy and security automation capabilities designed to help organizations fully leverage cloud-based data analytics and data sharing, even on their most sensitive data sets. This round of funding will expand Immuta’s market-leading footprint and accelerate the development of its automated data governance platform by verticalizing the law with industry-specific solutions.

Immuta originally launched in 2015 based on a mission within the U.S. Intelligence Community to build a platform that accelerates self-service access to and control of sensitive data. And the Immuta Automated Data Governance platform creates trust across data engineering, security, legal, compliance, and business teams so they can work together to ensure timely access to critical data with minimal risk while adhering to global data privacy regulations including the GDPR, CCPA, and HIPAA. Plus Immuta’s automated, scalable, no-code approach makes it easy for users to access the data they need, when they need it, while protecting sensitive information and ensuring customer privacy.
