News Flashes

DBTA will host a webcast on Tuesday, August 16, at 11am PT/2pm ET to examine the technology behind InfiniteGraph, the distributed and scalable graph database. Big data problems are presenting themselves in almost every area of computing from social network analysis to file processing. Many technologies, such as those in the NoSQL space, were developed in response to the limitations of current storage systems as an effective mechanism to deal with these mountains of data. And much of that data is interconnected in ways that, when organized properly, gives interesting and often valuable information.

Informatica Corporation has announced the availability of what the company describes as the industry's first dynamic data masking (DDM) solution. Informatica Dynamic Data Masking provides real-time, policy-driven obfuscation of sensitive data to address a wide range of common data security and privacy challenges without requiring any changes to database or application source code and is intended to address problems that cannot be solved by other technologies such as IAM (identity access management), SDM (static data masking). Informatica Dynamic Data Masking is based on technology developed by ActiveBase, which was acquired by Informatica in July, 2011.
