(The Hosting News) – DataLab, a company specializing in Data Quality, and Camouflage Software Inc., an independent software vendor specializing in the development of data masking solutions, announce a new strategic partnership based on the distribution of Data Masking solutions, in Portugal.
Through this partnership, DataLab will distribute Camouflage’s solution, which enables companies to create realistic-looking data to hide or anonymize sensitive data in a way that it cannot be distinguished by applications and the naked eye.
One of the biggest challenges around big data right now is that it’s not secure. Data is on premise, data is in the cloud, data is in social media, data is everywhere. So where is the boundary? Most customers recognize that they need to take another look and ask themselves what it is that they’re trying to secure. If you take a look at data privacy in Europe, there are EU regulations and they are mandated to abide by those regulations, otherwise the compliance costs would become very high for them. Obviously, in an organization you don’t want data to be available to everybody and anybody. At the end of the day, the most important IT asset is the data, so customers are increasingly becoming aware that they need to have an inside-out approach to data security and they must secure data at the source.
“This partnership with DataLab enhances our capabilities in delivering data masking solutions to new clients in Portugal, and some PALOP countries as well,” said Kevin Duggan, Camouflage CEO, “We are committed to providing data privacy solutions with leading global IT solutions and service partners, and we are excited to be working with DataLab and continuing to expand our presence internationally.”
“The Camouflage Data Masking Solution is a natural addition to our offering,” said Carlos Guerreiro, COO at DataLab. “Partnering with Camouflage enables us to extend our data management solutions offering, by having one of the most comprehensive data security technologies on the market today. Camouflage’s robust technology and ample experience in the market made them an easy choice, and we felt confident in offering their technology to our clients.”
As pioneers in data masking, Camouflage Software Inc. offers an end-to-end data masking solution featuring discovery, classification, subsetting and data masking technologies designed to ensure that sensitive information is properly protected for use in application development, testing, out-sourcing and training. Combined with its team of data masking experts and best practice guidance, Camouflage offers a proven and comprehensive approach to achieving superior test process results while facilitating compliance with legislation like US-EU Safe Harbor, EU Data Protection Directive, HIPAA/HITECH, PCI-DSS, GLBA, PIPEDA and more.
