We are pleased to announce that our acquisition of Privitar is complete and we officially welcome the Privitar team to the Informatica family! 

Privitar’s data access management and privacy product enables organizations to democratize the ethical and safe use of data across enterprises. The company's solution builds collaborative workflows and policy-based data privacy and access controls into data operations.

Together, we are building an advanced solution to strengthen and extend our AI-powered Intelligent Data Management Cloud™ platform.

“The enhanced solution will provide more data security and privacy offerings, a more complete and richer feature set of capabilities to support new mission-critical workloads across data integration, data governance & privacy, and MDM solutions. This allows customers to easily build, enforce and monitor robust data access policies,” said Jitesh Ghai, Chief Product Officer at Informatica. “In addition, we will provide the ability for enterprise customers to create new use cases through trusted and secure data democratization.”

Jason du Preez, former CEO of Privitar and now Vice President Product Development, Privacy and Security at Informatica said, “The ability to deliver holistic data access and privacy policies, a broad range of policy-enforcement points, all metadata driven and designed for scale will enable our customers to better manage responsible data use, reduce time-to-data, and support compliance to drive better business outcomes.  We’re very excited to provide Privitar’s capabilities alongside Informatica’s leading data management platform, simplifying trustworthy data management for our customers.”

Next steps

Our development teams are already at work integrating Privitar’s solution into Informatica’s Intelligent Data Management Cloud. We are targeting an integrated solution for our customers by early 2024, available globally. We will continue to provide updates as we progress.
