Dataguise Launches Solution for Big Data Governance

Information security firm Dataguise has released new solution that enables organizations to easily declare policies, discover sensitive data, view and track entitlements, and audit access to sensitive data across transactional databases, data warehouses, file shares, Apache Hadoop, and other Big Data sources.

Information security firm Dataguise has released new solution that enables organizations to easily declare policies, discover sensitive data, view and track entitlements, and audit access to sensitive data across transactional databases, data warehouses, file shares, Apache Hadoop, and other Big Data sources.

Called the Dataguise for Data Governance suite, initial supported platforms include Oracle, IBM DB2, SQL Server, Teradata, Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR and Pivotal HD, Dataguise said.

“With the ever-increasing amounts of data from new and varied sources that can be structured, unstructured and semi-structured, identifying, categorizing and ranking privacy and security risks has become a major challenge in enterprises today,” said Patty Nghiem, vice president of marketing and business development at Dataguise.

According to the company, Dataguise for Data Governance features include:

Policy Quickstart: Select pre-defined policies for PCI, PII and HIPAA; or click-to-create custom policies with no coding or scripting

Sensitive Data Discovery: Automatically find and track sensitive data in the enterprise, whether at rest or in motion, in structured or unstructured format, across heterogeneous data platforms

Entitlements: View and track entitlements down to the user and data element level

Auditing: View automated reports and dashboards to track who accessed what sensitive data

The solution is fully compatible with DgSecure, Dataguise’s flagship platform for data privacy, protection and security for sensitive data across the enterprise.

More information is available online.
