Immuta , a leader in data security, today announced a new native integration between Immuta’s data security platform and the object storage service Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). This integration provides customers with optimized data access control and security across storage and compute platforms with Amazon S3 Access Grants, a new access control feature of Amazon S3 that enables customers to manage data permissions at scale for user identities managed by enterprise directories. Amazon S3 is an object storage service from Amazon Web Services (AWS) that delivers industry-leading durability, scalability, availability, and security, enabling data and security teams to get even more value from their Amazon S3 data, reduce costs, and increase efficiency increase.
Amazon S3 stores more than 350 trillion objects with over 100 million requests per second to handle a variety of workloads including artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics. Organizations need a simple, scalable, centralized solution that consistently enforces access control and protects data across data stacks while ensuring compliance with internal and external regulations. With Immuta’s new data security platform and Amazon S3’s new Access Grants feature, users can centralize access control management and use attribute-based access controls (ABAC) to grant permissions to objects in Amazon S3 storage. Immuta is built on Amazon S3 -Controls and increases efficiency with fewer policies and less manual effort, reducing operational costs and creating new revenue streams. Amazon S3 integration also helps US government agencies protect sensitive data stored in the AWS GovCloud (US) – Regions are hosted.
“The amount of data Amazon S3 can store and access is truly impressive. This also applies to the number of platforms that manage and analyze Amazon S3 data every day – from Databricks and Snowflake to Amazon Redshift and Amazon EMR. ” This is why Amazon S3 access control is paramount due to the sheer volume of data passing through the service,” said Steve Touw , Immuta’s CTO Simplify and ensure the security of stored data so that users can more securely use this data for their analytics and AI initiatives. Combined with Immuta’s “write once, apply everywhere” approach, this helps customers democratize data use and while remaining compliant with global regulations.”

- The plain-language policy builder reduces the need to manually code AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies and access controls for Amazon S3.
- Scalable, attribute-based access control supports more use cases and users and includes a metadata-driven approach to managing policy logic to further increase efficiency.
- Consistent access controls and policies across advanced data stacks include support for Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift, Snowflake, Databricks and Starburst (Trino) .
- Access to Apache Spark for Amazon EMR and other AWS services through Amazon S3 Access Grants provides scalable, attribute-based access control for file reads and table access in Spark jobs.
“By leveraging this new version of Immuta, integrated with Amazon S3 Access Grants, we provide a single plane of control for Booking.com data owners and controllers to access all Amazon S3 resources stored in our data lake ” As this integration is based on a new native access control feature of Amazon S3, we can be confident that the Controls are consistently enforced regardless of what technology data consumers choose to access the data.”
