REDWOOD CITY, CA - June 14, 2023 – Informatica (NYSE: INFA), the enterprise cloud data management leader, announced its intent to acquire Privitar bringing advanced access controls and remediation for data privacy and security to Informatica's AI powered Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC) platform. Privitar is a UK-based data management access and privacy software provider that powers organizations to democratize the ethical and safe use of data across enterprises.

A comprehensive data access management solution allows for the automation of secure, auditable, and regulatory-compliant access to data assets, unlocking the power of data democratization. Adding Privitar's data access management and privacy solution to the IDMC platform supports critical, high-growth use cases around cloud analytics, governance, data mesh, and data marketplace.
Amit Walia, Chief Executive Officer at Informatica, said, “Data governance and responsible use of data is a growing priority for large businesses, but too often requires trading off agility and self-service. With Privitar's data access management and privacy capabilities integrated into IDMC, customers can deliver best-in-class data governance, access, policies, and compliance empowering better data-driven decision-making and business outcomes. I’m excited to welcome the Privitar team to Informatica.”
As customers look to democratize the use of data further into their organization, the ability to easily control access, protect data and enforce policies has become a critical need. By leveraging the power of its CLAIRE AI engine combined with Privitar’s data access management capability, Informatica IDMC can automate the application of policy-based privacy and access controls, and help accelerate the use of governed and trusted data across the organization
Jason du Preez, Chief Executive Officer at Privitar, said, "We are thrilled about the opportunity to join Informatica and integrate our solution into their market-leading data management cloud. Together, we will further our mission of empowering organizations to unlock the full potential of their data by providing a unified, secure, and scalable solution for data access and privacy.
