Informatica Enhances Enterprise-wide Visibility and Control of Critical Sensitive Data

Secure@Source Empowers Customers to Execute Data-driven Digital Transformation with Confidence and Compliance

    Redwood City, Calif., Oct. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
  • Intelligently maps, monitors, assesses and orchestrates remediation of data risk
  • Protects data in cloud, data lake, unstructured data and traditional data environments
  • Supports and helps accelerate GDPR compliance for data privacy
  • Provides risk scoring of critical data to target security investments and programs

Informatica®, the Enterprise Cloud Data Management leader accelerating data-driven digital transformation, today announced Informatica Secure@Source® version 4, the newest version of its award-winning data security offering. Secure@Source is the market’s first solution to provide enterprise data security intelligence and protection for accurately assessing and remediating data risk across cloud, data lakes, unstructured data and traditional on-premises data environments. The solution stands apart from other offerings because it combines automated and integrated sensitive data discovery, classification, threat identification, user behavior analytics (UBA), monitoring, risk scoring and remediation in a single platform. With Secure@Source, organizations can prioritize and remediate data risks and monitor their environment for emerging risk conditions.

As the volume of data increases, more and more of the data associated with today’s data-driven digital transformations is dispersed across new and often difficult-to-secure locations – including data lakes and other repositories of unstructured data, mobile devices and the cloud. As a result, organizations must find ways to intelligently map and assess the risk of their dispersed information, and quickly orchestrate effective security controls across all their high-risk data.

Like many components of the Informatica Intelligent Data Platform™, Secure@Source is powered by the metadata-driven CLAIRE™ engine. This enables Secure@Source to intelligently detect and protect critical data across the enterprise, with metadata-driven artificial intelligence, to accelerate compliance initiatives such as GDPR.

New key features of Informatica Secure@Source include:

  • Support for unstructured data, including Office, PDF, text, XML, CSV and JSON
  • Expanded platform support including Amazon Redshift, Azure and SAP
  • Orchestration of a broad range of security controls for remediation, including Ranger, Sentry, data masking and encryption
  • Acceleration of compliance initiatives with classification and security policies for regulations such as GDPR.
