Privacera vs Immuta

Privacera’s Data Security Platform uniquely offers the following advantages over typical proxy-based data security solutions found with Immuta’s Data Security Platform.

Breadth of connectivity

Breadth of connectivity

With over 50 connectors to structured and semi-structured data, including Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift, Databricks, Snowflake, Starburst, Dremio, Google BigQuery and many others, Privacera offers you native access and privacy enforcement across your entire data estate. Immuta only supports 6 connectors.

Transparent to your analytical tools

Unlike proxy-based approaches found with Immuta’s Data Security Platform, Privacera automatically translates centrally defined policy controls into native database-specific access and privacy controls. No impact on query performance at runtime. Privacera also does not require every query request to be transformed or edited at runtime to insert access or privacy controls. Due to their architecture, Immuta requires all queries to point to the Immuta proxy or new database views created specially to support the Immuta engine.

Most comprehensive auto-data detection and onboarding

Privacera manages and automates the entire data security lifecycle from finding, classifying, and securing data to continuous monitoring and auditing. Data can be automatically scanned and tagged for sensitive data, resulting in global data estate protection through a single tag-based policy. Immuta’s discovery, secure or access capabilities mainly supports RDBMS/ SQL style access patterns while Privacera supports structured and unstructured data. Additionally, Immuta has no GenAI application security and governance solutions.

Real-time GenAI app security and privacy protection

Privacera AI Governance (PAIG) offers real-time scanning and protection of user inputs into GenAI apps and models as well as model responses in accordance with user permissions and privacy settings. In addition, Privacera can assist with replicating existing source permissions on data used for retrieval augmented generation (RAG) from systems like Sharepoint, Confluent, databases and file systems. In addition, at runtime Privacera can then enforce fine-grained filtering based on user permissions to only retrieve context records based on user’s permissions.  PAIG provides continuous monitoring and auditing to understand model usage and identify bias or gaps in your security posture. Immuta has no ability to secure GenAI applications at runtime against unauthorized or malicious use.

Real-time scanning and classification

Privacera uses AI-powered real-time scanning and detection of sensitive data elements in structured and semi-structured data on more than 20 data sources, while Immuta supports a very small number of relational/ structured sources only. Sensitive data is automatically tagged for subsequent security and privacy controls creation. Privacera provides out-of-the-box algorithms, rules and expressions to support GDPR, CCPA, PHI, HIPAA and various other regulatory frameworks. Plus it enables you to add your own rules and expressions to serve your unique needs.

Native access, security, and privacy enforcement

Privacera provides a universal policy control plane across your entire data estate with more than 50 data sources supported natively. Policies are built once, deployed anywhere. Immuta supports only 6 data sources with a proxy-based architecture that results in a single point of failure and poor performance.

Native access controls means that queries and data access paths are not interrupted while guaranteeing high performance and resilience. Policies are automatically translated by Privacera into data-source specific and native enforcement controls (access policies, masking, encryption) to reduce complexity across multi-service data estates and hybrid cloud.

Continuous monitoring and auditing

Privacera continuously and automatically collects all access events across your entire data estate to provide a single-pane-of-glass view for security teams to better understand usage patterns, sensitive data locations, and generally improve their security posture. With Privacera’s broad coverage of data sources, organizations get the most comprehensive observability and insight into their entire data estate, compared to Immuta with a very narrow connectivity spread og 6 connectors only.
