Dataguise to Launch IT's First Big Data Governance Suite
The new Data Governance suite enables enterprises to declare policies, discover sensitive data, redact required terms and automate it all.We're all abundantly aware that in only the past few years, a whole new sub-category of IT has grown up around storing, analyzing, monitoring, protecting and reporting on so-called big data stores. These are large caches of data that include archived conventional business data along with new streams of social and machine data that weren't taken into account previously. We are now officially adding another new service category to that list: data governance for big data. After all, big data is of no use to anyone unless it is under tight control, especially in regulated industries. This new sector is being claimed early on by Fremont, Calif.-based Dataguise, which specializes in big data-centric control and access. eWEEK has learned exclusively that on June 23, Dataguise will launch at the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, Md., what it describes as the industry's first specifically architected solution for big data governance. Discovers Data from Silos, Automates Governance
The Dataguise Data Governance suite enables enterprises to declare policies, discover sensitive data, redact required terms, view and track entitlements, and audit access to sensitive data--and then automate them all across transactional databases, data warehouses, file shares, Apache Hadoop and other big data stores.
--Policy Quickstart: Select predefined 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. Dataguise, founded in 2007, has most of its customers in the financial services, health care, retail and government environments. Its products are designed to reduce the risk of data breaches and to remain compliant with regulations that protect personally identifiable information (PII), such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH), and the Payment Card Industry (PCI) DSS.
