dataguise Announces New Data Masking Templates

dataguise, a provider of security solutions for protecting sensitive data, has announced the availability of its dgmasker enterprise application templates. Developed with leading application experts, the dataguise dgmasker templates provide enterprise organizations that have deployed Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise, SAP ERP and NextGen Healthcare Software with the ability to quickly secure personally identifiable information for use in non-production application development, testing, QA and training environments.

In order to effectively implement packaged applications, enterprises need to have the ability to support these systems in production environments as well as during the development, QA, testing and pilot deployment process. These methods can expose highly sensitive data to employees at various levels within an organization as well as offshore and outsourced personnel, increasing the risk of a data breach. dgmasker supports non-production use of enterprise applications while eliminating the risk of sensitive data exposure.

Developing a masking strategy for packaged enterprise applications is a particularly difficult and time-consuming issue for organizations, as a typical application may contain tens of thousands of tables with hundreds of potentially sensitive data types, according to Allan Thompson, executive vice president, Operations for dataguise. Using dgdiscover, organizations can identify the sensitive tables and columns, and then using dgmasker technology, mask that sensitive information in place, Thompson explains.

"Now DBAs will be able to create non-production copies, mask them using the templates and then be able to provide that to test and development, with the sensitive data protected. It used to take several months to do that, and now they will be able to do that in days," he tells 5 Minute Briefing.

dgmasker is an automated and advanced security solution that helps enterprises meet compliance requirements, including PCI-DSS, PII, HIPAA, GLBA and SOX. By developing the dgmasker application templates, dataguise has further simplified the data masking process across industry-leading applications, offering its Masking On-Demand technology to organizations spanning several vertical markets including education, healthcare, financial services and human resources. dgmasker supports non-production use of enterprise applications while eliminating the risk of sensitive data exposure.

With the new dgmasker application templates, organizations can implement a comprehensive data masking solution within a matter of days, ensuring they are protected against exposure resulting from an internal or external breach, Thompson notes. The dataguise dgmasker application templates for Oracle E-Business Suite and NextGen Healthcare Software are available now. Templates for PeopleSoft Enterprise, SAP ERP will be available within 90 days.
