Leading neuroscience company Cogstate leveraging partnership to unlock full potential of data
Australian owned consultancy, Mantel Group, has partnered with international data access leader, Immuta, to provide data owners with a leading solution to automate their cloud data access at scale while protecting their most sensitive data. Immuta will work with several of the cloud businesses within Mantel Group’s house of brands, including CMD Solutions, Kasna, and Azenix, along with Cuusoo and Eliiza on data control.
Immuta has cemented itself as the leading SaaS data access solutions for global businesses. Only Immuta can automate access control for any data, on any cloud service, across all compute infrastructure. Immuta goes beyond role-based access control to deliver fine grained access control with an attribute-based control plane, managing access for all users, services and tools into data stores. It is compatible with all major data products, including AWS Redshift, Snowflake, and Databricks. With Mantel Group’s Cuusoo, the only Australian dedicated consultancy brand for Databricks, this partnership further strengthens Cuusoo’s offering to those wanting to implement a Lakehouse solution for their data.
Mantel Group and Immuta enable clients to simplify the distribution of data controls to internal and external parties, without requiring extensive role-based access control policies. Attribute-based control is simpler, easier to implement, and requires much lower overhead to manage compared with role-based access control alone.
“Immuta will support clients across five of our seven brands, highlighting how important this relationship is,” stated Mantel Group CEO, Con Mouzouris. “With a strong focus on digital, data and cloud, Immuta further advances Mantel Group’s offering and our leadership in these categories.”
“As we grow within Australia, it is important to partner with a consultancy that is Australian-owned and understands the landscape well. Mantel Group not only provides this, but also has strong credentials in the data space across its brands. While Immuta serves global companies in virtually every industry, we have deep expertise in highly regulated industries with sensitive data concerns like healthcare and financial services, which is closely aligned to the client base of Mantel Group” said Matthew Caroll, CEO of Immuta. “We’re very excited to partner with the Mantel Group to deliver secure data access solutions and help Australian businesses unlock the power of their data,” he added.
Mantel Group and Immuta have already begun their partnership, working on projects together for multiple major clients including Cogstate, a leading neuroscience technology company.
Cogstate provides digital brain health assessments to advance the development of new medicines and to enable earlier clinical insights in healthcare. Working with Mantel Group on its data strategy, Cogstate identified that one of the barriers to unlocking the full value of its data was making the right data easily accessible to the right people. Given the highly sensitive nature of health data and the regulations associated with how this data is stored and managed, Cogstate requires a solution with robust access controls so they can trust that their data is being accessed and monitored appropriately.
Working with Immuta, Mantel Group has been able to deploy Immuta’s software at Cogstate and use it to manage security and privacy around its new data lakehouse, enabling Cogstate to unify its data and unlock new analytic potential without compromising the security of its data or the legal obligations it has with its clients.
Being specialised in the data lifecycle, Mantel Group envisages many more major projects with Immuta in the near future, as data continues to drive decision-making in businesses.
“Mantel Group brings the breadth of coverage, the credibility and the expertise to partner with us to identify, architect and deliver innovative, secure, data access solutions for leading Australia business,” added Anthony Farr, Immuta’s Regional Head for Asia Pacific and Japan.
