The Only Enterprise-Class Data Protection Engine

Ionic Machina™ breaks digital security gridlock by consolidating siloed data access policy, just-in-time policy enforcement, encryption key management, and holistic access visibility into a single, consistent system of record.

Policy is the new perimeter.
Simplify the complexity of data protection.

As the unified service layer for managing and enforcing data access policy, Machina makes it easy to address complex use cases that persistently undermine data security and stifle innovation, without requiring changes to applications or underlying databases.

Secure Data Across All Environments

Globally express and manage data handling policies coupled with machine-scale encryption from a single control plane, across all your applications, repositories, and workloads in your hybrid or cloud/multicloud environment.

Rich Data Access Control Policies

More than just roles — protect data by creating a system of record for contextually defining and enforcing access policies using rich data, identity, and other attributes. Implement the level of granularity that meets your evolving needs.

Single Source of Truth

Full-spectrum visibility into how, why, who, and what is accessing data across your entire organization with real-time analytics and auditing logs of all data activities.

Separate Security and Business Logic

Minimize the effort required to apply or change access policy across applications, workloads and other entities based on varied criteria, by creating the policy once and enforcing it across any number of entities.

Real-Time Access Control

Data access policy for individuals, groups, or entire organizations can be instantaneously applied across all use cases where that data is accessed in any environment. View real-time analytics on policy decisions enforced.

Compliance Made Simple

Use attribute-based access controls to easily meet complex compliance (CCPA, GDPR, etc.) requirements, enforcing consistent policies across entities in your organization, backed by data activity audit logs.


We had no hope of getting this right in 50+ systems. Our best bet was to get this right in one place and make it very easy for the rest of our vendors to make use of that knowledge just in time.

One Solution.
Managing Every Data
Access Decision.

In a single, highly-automated framework, Machina combines all the solution components required to scale data protection – across clouds, environments, applications, and data silos.

Machina Policy

A framework for storing and retrieving rich, contextual data access policies leveraging attribute-based access control (ABAC) – federated across identities, resources, data stores, applications, and workloads.

Machina Attributes

Intelligent system that couples a rich set of user, device, service, and data attributes with automated machine-scale key management - independent of applications, scalable to trillions of keys, and fully controlled by your organization.

Machina Decision

An API-driven service layer that enables just-in-time enforcement of data access policies – by evaluating user, device, service, environment, and data attributes, to determine whether to allow or deny the request.

Machina Console

An interface providing configuration, auditing, and analytics capabilities for policies, as well as comprehensive, real-time visibility into how users are accessing and handling sensitive data, over the lifetime of every data element.

Machina Tools

A robust set of developer tools (SDKs and APIs) provides easy-to-use integration between Machina data protection services and their diverse applications, enabled with only a few lines of code.

Wherever Your Data Travels. Machina Is There To Protect It.

Machina consistently protects and controls access to your sensitive data, from creation through consumption, everywhere it travels and anywhere it resides.

Cloud Storage

Centralize management and enforcement of data access policy across Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud platforms.

Third-Party Cloud Apps

Create a single layer of data access policy management and enforcement across all your third-party cloud applications, even extending protection after data is exported.

Custom Enterprise Apps

Seamlessly align new applications to a consistent data access policy framework, and enable them with real-time policy enforcement services.

Endpoint Files & Unstructured Data

Extend data access policy management and enforcement to unstructured data natively inside leading business productivity applications.
