Dynamic Data Obfuscation Comes to U.S.
Silos-Connect Technologies CEO Tony Cannizzo says notorious data breaches are leading people to overemphasize endpoint security, when it is equally important to secure data at its database source. Cannizzo says protecting data in databases goes beyond static encryption and requires a flexible approach to data obfuscation.Thieves making off with laptops, hackers planting a Trojan in a store kiosk to send data to the Ukraine-these are the data breaches that gather the headlines. The result is an overemphasis on endpoint security, according to Tony Cannizzo, CEO of Silos-Connect Technologies, a distributor of database technology in Atlanta. Securing the perimeter may be job one, but at least equally important is securing data at its source-in the enterprise database. To that end, Cannizzo asserts that protecting data in databases requires a flexible approach to data obfuscation, not simply the use of static encryption.
Since April, Silos-Connect has been distributing data obfuscation technology from ActiveBase, an Israeli company founded in 2002 by several Oracle veterans. With about 50 implementations in Europe, ActiveBase offers three complementary products: ActiveBase Security, ActiveBase Performance and ActiveBase Priority.
