Why choose Satori over Immuta or Privacera

Satori logo2 dark

Satori provides first-class support for modern data stores and cloud environments, including multi-cloud environments. Privacera, built on Apache Ranger, is optimized for legacy Hadoop environments. Immuta lacks support for operational data stores and full functionality around BI tools.

Satori’s datasets automatically pick up new tables and apply policies based on user access rules. Privacera’s policy engine is complex to configure and hard to maintain. Immuta requires considerable maintenance – in many cases, policies need to be managed on each table individually.

Deploying Satori takes days to weeks, depending on deployment method. Immuta’s implementation takes weeks with orchestration, or months with database views, which require significant change management. Privacera, due to its open-source nature, requires extensive deployment, configuration, tuning and customization efforts.

Satori protects many SQL and NoSQL operational data stores without requiring any changes to your schema or permissions, thus not impacting your production workloads. Privacera only supports PostgreSQL and Microsoft SQL Server by translating Apache Ranger policies to GRANT/REVOKE statements. Immuta doesn’t support operational data stores at all.

Satori continuously scans and analyzes data as it is accessed in real time, including semi-structured data. Neither Immuta nor Privacera support classification or masking of semi-structured data.
