Informatica And Imperva Partner To Deliver Layered Database Privacy And Security

Imperva will resell Informatica's data masking technology

Redwood City, Calif., Feb. 25, 2014 – Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world's number one independent provider of data integration software today announced that Imperva will resell Informatica's industry-leading data masking technology. Together with Imperva's SecureSphere Database Security solutions, the combined solution will deliver database monitoring and masking that works across multiple applications and platforms.

Data protection and privacy mandates require that organizations track access to customer, patient and other personal data, and prevent unauthorized access. Together, the two products enable organizations to audit all access to data and mask sensitive data without changing a single line of code or writing new, custom-built scripts. The partnership gives customers the ability to purchase data masking and database security software through a single vendor, simplifying the procurement process.

Imperva will be exhibiting database security solutions at the RSA security Conference 2014, Feb. 24-28, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif. Visit Imperva at Booth #701 to learn more about protecting application data and monitoring, reporting and blocking access to sensitive data.

In its Nov. 7, 2013, news release, "Gartner Survey Finds That Fear of Cyberattacks and Data Breaches Could Leave Enterprises Exposed to Emerging Security Risks," Gartner, Inc., a leading information technology research and advisory company, said Gartner's 2013 Global Risk Management Survey found that "fear of attack is causing security professionals to shift focus away from disciplines such as enterprise risk management and risk-based information security to technical security."

Informatica believes that measures such as data masking and database activity monitoring are considered standard best practices to minimize the risk of a data breach.

Amit Walia, senior vice president and general manager, ILM Business Unit, Informatica, said, "CISOs and CIOs care about their ability to protect company, employee, customer and partner data. Imperva's solution combining Informatica technology makes it easier to implement a layered strategy without sacrificing agility or exceeding IT budgets. It can be deployed without the need to write any custom code or change the application, and it can centralize policy management across disparate systems and technology stacks."

Mark Kraynak, senior vice president, Worldwide Marketing, Imperva, said, "Databases are among the first data center resources examined by both auditors and hackers. To safeguard databases, organizations need to add a layer of protection that directly surrounds these assets. Imperva Database Security provides that layer of protection, and Informatica Data Masking complements SecureSphere with sensitive data masking."

Informatica Data Masking products, including Informatica Dynamic Data Masking and Informatica Persistent Data Masking, are part of the company's comprehensive Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) suite of offerings. Informatica Data Masking software, which will be resold by Imperva, is powered by Informatica Vibe, the industry's first and only embeddable virtual data machine (VDM). With Informatica Vibe, customers can define security policies once – apply (and mask) anywhere – whether on-premises or in the cloud, in production and non-production environments, and whether in Oracle or Hadoop.

Informatica Dynamic and Persistent Data Masking solutions are available now through Imperva. To view a joint solution brief, "Safeguard Data and Stay Compliant with a Database Audit and Privacy Solution," click here.
