Protegrity partners with Teradata to secure private clouds
Data analytics company uses "tokenisation" to protect private clouds
Security company Protegrity has partnered with data analytics comapny Teradata to offer customers the means to secure private clouds running data warehouses using secure tokens. The announcement was made at Teradata's Universe conference in Dublin, Ireland.
It said that flexibility and control are vital for organisations mining vast amounts of data in order to react quickly to market changes. But added that these organisations must be aligned with data protection compliance enforcement bodies such as PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards).
In the joint solution, tokenisation is applied to sensitive data before it enters the warehouse, using the enterprise's own security policies. This, Protegrity said, provides a security layer for all information in the database wherever it flows, without affecting a business's ability to perform rapid analysis on that data.
The solution relies on Protegrity's Vaultless Tokenisation, which uses a very small set of lookup tables of random values without having to store either the sensitive data or the tokens. Tokenised data can be mined and manipulated by business processes without having to return the data to its original form, improving accessibility and performance while keeping the data protected.
"By optimising our data security solution to work specifically in the Teradata ADW environment, we are able to offer our joint clients a complete data security platform that enables them to deploy and easily manage a unified set of data security technologies to protect sensitive information across their organization," said Suni Munshani, chief executive of Protegrity.
Protegrity also said that it is now certified on the Teradata Aster MapReduce Platform - Teradata's big data analytic tool. It said organisations using this platform can continue to find information for decision-making analytics without the risk of data exposure.
