Data access leader Immuta enters Australian and New Zealand Market

Matthew Carroll, Chief Executive Officer, Immuta

Immuta, an automated data access and data security protection firm, announced its expansion into the ANZ markets with the addition of new clients and new hires in the region.

“Companies are grappling with how best to provide access to data at scale while ensuring it’s done securely and in accordance with rules and privacy regulations like the APP (Australian Privacy Principles), GDPR, CCPA, LGPD, and HIPAA,” says Matthew Carroll, CEO, Immuta.

“We’re proud to establish a presence here to offer our SaaS solutions and unique expertise to help businesses access cloud data while ensuring compliance and preserving data security.”

What does Immuta bring to the ANZ region?

One of Immuta’s first regional clients is Sydney-based Insurance Australia Group Limited (IAG), ANZ’s largest general insurer. IAG offers a range of personal and commercial insurance products, primarily motor vehicle and home insurance. Immuta worked with teams at IAG to streamline policy enforcement to meet regulatory standards and contractual agreements.

“One of the really big advantages that Immuta has given us, from a return-on-investment (ROI) perspective, is our ability to make change happen faster,” says Dave Abrahams, Executive General Manager of Data, Insurance Australia Group Limited IAG.

“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.”

To further growth in the ANZ markets, Immuta hired industry veteran Anthony Farr as its Regional Head for the Asia Pacific and Japan. Farr will be responsible for growing Immuta’s presence, supporting ANZ enterprises with cutting-edge data access and privacy solutions.

What is Immuta’s market growth?

Immuta recently announced record growth in 2021, increasing annual recurring revenue (ARR) by over 100%, doubling its client base, and continuing its global expansion into EMEA and APJ. Last year, Immuta launched its SaaS deployment option to help firms with global footprints meet surging demand for cloud-based data access platforms across the globe.

Immuta’s partner network of top cloud data platforms includes SnowflakeDatabricksAmazon RedshiftGoogle BigQueryAzure Synapse, and Starburst.

“Immuta is excited to help drive cloud transformation in the Aussie market by bringing our expertise to enhance localised capabilities for enterprises. Customer experience, as well as local expertise and partnerships, will be essential to our growth in the region,” says Farr.
