Compuware and Dataguise Partner to Protect Data During Application Testing

Compuware Corporation, a technology management vendor, and Dataguise, a provider of enterprise security intelligence solutions, have teamed up to provide a privacy solution to protect employee and customer personally identifiable information. As part of this partnership, Compuware will resell technology from Dataguise Compuware Test Data Solution, branded as DgDiscover for Compuware.

Most companies pull application test data directly from their production systems, which exposes sensitive information to internal and outsourced development and QA teams. "Protecting sensitive customer information is critical for all organizations regardless of size, industry or country," says Kimberly King, vice president of partnerships and alliances for Compuware.

DgDiscover for Compuware augments the Test Data Privacy solution, lowering the total cost of a comprehensive solution to fully protect sensitive data across the enterprise. While Test Data Privacy extracts relationally intact subsets of data and disguises them for protection in non-production environments, DgDiscover for Compuware streamlines and automates the process of identifying and locating sensitive information.
