dataguise Announces Download Version of Its Sensitive Data Discovery and Auditing Solution

First-of-Its Kind Software Trial of dgdiscover for Enterprises Allows for Rapid Identification of Sensitive Data

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - April 12, 2010) -  dataguise™ (http://www.dataguise.com), a leading innovator of security solutions for protecting sensitive data across the enterprise, today announced a first-of-its-kind software trial version of its dgdiscover™ database security solution for Microsoft SQL Server and MS Access environments. Prospective customers can now at no charge easily and rapidly ascertain where sensitive information is residing throughout the enterprise. By utilizing the trial version of dgdiscover, organizations are provided with a view of sensitive data in their environment. Locating where sensitive data resides is a critical step in building an effective security strategy. 

The full use license for dgdiscover is also available for heterogeneous database environments, supporting Oracle, DB2, Teradata and Sybase in addition to Microsoft SQL Server and MS Access.

Recent research reports cite Microsoft SQL Server as the fastest growing database and business intelligence platform(1) with more than 70 percent of enterprise organizations currently utilizing SQL Server database technology. Microsoft SQL Server enterprise users with concerns over sensitive information can now leverage the dgdiscover trial software to perform an effective and efficient audit to gain better insight into their environment. Once the no charge trial period has concluded, organizations can easily convert to the full version of dgdiscover for Microsoft SQL Server and MS Access, for the low entry price of less than US$10,000.

dataguise dgdiscover is designed to find structured database repositories across the network and then identify the data at risk within the database. Most organizations that have measures in place to control access to critical data in their production environments do not always extend protection efforts to non-production data -- an area addressed by dataguise. dgdiscover, normally priced at over US$24,995 per year with full support for heterogeneous database environments, is being offered at no charge to provide approved enterprise customers with the tools needed to perform a 'spot check' network analysis for determining their security posture with respect to sensitive data at risk and compliance requirements.

"Organizations spanning several vertical markets including education, healthcare, financial services, human resources as well as the public sector are realizing a critical step in improving their overall security posture is first determining where all sensitive data resides," said Allan Thompson, EVP of Operations at dataguise. "By utilizing the discovery capabilities included in the trial version of dgdiscover, enterprises can obtain a comprehensive level of insight into their SQL Server and MS Access database repositories that is vital to developing a robust security strategy that reduces the risk of a serious data breach." 

dataguise dgdiscover scales for use in small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) to large, global corporations, providing organizations of any size with the best-in-breed enterprise-wide discovery and auditing technology currently available on the market.
