Published August 2021


In a head-to-head comparison by GigaOm, Immuta’s attribute-based access control (ABAC) required 75X fewer policy changes than Ranger’s role-based access control (RBAC) to accomplish the same security objectives. The downstream impact of this is enormous, with the attribute-based approach increasing cloud ROI by more than $300,000.

In this report, you’ll learn:

  • How Immuta compares to Apache Ranger
  • What’s so special about ABAC, in both simple and advanced access control scenarios
  • How data access policy changes translate to time and opportunity costs
