Immuta announces A/NZ expansion
Automated data access control company Immuta is expanding into the Australian and New Zealand markets, building up a new team in the region.
The company has appointed industry veteran Anthony Farr as regional head for Asia–Pacific and Japan, supporting its growing presence in the two markets.
Immuta CEO Matthew Carrol said the expansion is a response to demand for data access control and security protection solutions that can help enterprises meet regulatory standards.
“Global companies are grappling with how best to provide access to data at scale while ensuring it’s done securely and in accordance with local rules and privacy regulations like the Australian Privacy Principles,” he said.
“We’re proud to establish a presence here to offer our SaaS solutions and unique expertise to help businesses access and share cloud data while ensuring compliance and preserving data security and privacy.”
Immuta has meanwhile already secured a contract with Sydney-based Insurance Australia Group (IAG). The deal involved working data teams at IAG to streamline policy enforcement to meet strict regulatory standards and contractual agreements.
IAG Executive General Manager Dave Abrahams said one of the major advantages of the deployment from a return on investment perspective is the ability to implement changes more quickly.
“Previously, it would take months of manual assessments and working through the challenges around how we could access and use data to help create the best products for our customers. We can now do that in an instant, globally, across all of our data,” he said.
