Dataguise Offers Data-Centric Discovery, Security for NoSQL
The platform lets admins detect sensitive data, like credit cards, social security numbers, names, addresses, and other information, stored in NoSQL.Dataguise unveiled DgSecure, a new product to counter the risk of data breaches to NoSQL data stores. The first implementations of DgSecure for NoSQL support Cassandra/Datastax NoSQL deployments. Using the product’s templates, organizations can select specific sensitive elements for policy-based protection of information such as credit cards, social security numbers and medical data. Once these elements are discovered and cataloged, DgSecure for NoSQL provides dynamic protection of the sensitive data through an intercept agent. This agent provides access to authorized users and creates masked, de-identified, or encrypted values for protecting data as it is being written out to the users and applications that access data in NoSQL data stores. "DgSecure was originally conceived by engineering management at Oracle, who saw a market gap around sensitive data at the data element level in Oracle databases," Jeremy Stieglitz, vice president of products for Dataguise, told eWEEK. "Today, there is an entire industry focused on data-centric security and Dataguise has expanded to control databases, files in directories and Sharepoint, and now, a major focus on big data in Hadoop, Amazon S3, and NoSQL repositories."
The new platform allows administrators to detect all sensitive data, such as credit card information and social security numbers stored in NoSQL and proactively discover all new sensitive data being written to the database.
