US data specialist Immuta is opening a European headquarters in London to better serve its growing customer base in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, and Sweden.

Fresh from raising $100m Series E funding in June, Immuta has won a clutch of prestigious European clients, including Roche, Swedbank and Billie.

It now plans to grow its teams across Europe and strengthen its strategic partnerships within the region.

Immuta’s CEO Matthew Carroll said: “As global organisations continue to migrate data to the cloud in unprecedented volumes, they will face the challenge of providing access to data at scale, while ensuring it is done securely and in accordance with rules and privacy regulations.

“Immuta’s data teams in the EMEA region can now provide automated data access control at scale across the leading cloud data platforms.”

Immuta was founded in Boston in 2015 and its technology supports global financial services, insurance, healthcare, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, transportation, retail, and public sector organisations, as well as leading tech firms.

Many of the world’s top data-driven organisations, including Mercedes-Benz Group and IAG, rely on Immuta every day to quickly, safely, and efficiently share more data with more users and mitigate the risk of data leaks and breaches.

Colin Mitchell, Immuta’s general manager for EMEA, said: “We are delighted to expand our presence in Europe, as well as other key regions around the globe.

“Our European and Australian presence really mark our commitment to our international customers and will help us address the growing demand for scalable data access that we’ve witnessed working with businesses across Europe.”

Immuta recently partnered with Nordic-Baltic based Banking Group Swedbank, one of the largest banks in Sweden and the third largest in the Nordics.

Immuta has also worked with Billie, the Berlin-based FinTech company, to help the company speed up access to data ten-fold and double the usage of data across the company.

The data specialist’s growing partner network of cloud data platforms includes Snowflake, Databricks, Amazon Redshift, Azure Synapse and Starburst.

June’s Series E funding round of $100m was led by Nightdragon and brought Immuta’s total funding to date to $267m. In 2021 the company grew its ARR by 100%.
