Aon is a recent purchased Immuta technology to automate data privacy and governance, the company said.

Immuta describes its technology as focused on “automated data governance” by way of a cloud-based platform that works with sensitive data around regulation and business rules. The platform automates data access control, security and privacy compliance so users only see data they’re supposed to. The platform has become part of cloud data and analytics platforms including Amazon Web Services, Databricks and Snowflake, according to Immuta’s funding announcement.
