Tizor Launches First Data Auditing & Protection Blog

Expert Helps Sort Out the Confusion Around Data Auditing and Protection Practices With Dialogue in Blogosphere

MAYNARD, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 28, 2007 -- Tizor Systems, the leading provider of enterprise data auditing and protection solutions for the data center, today announced the launch of the DataAuditingBlog, the first blog about data auditing and its related subjects, which is located at http://blog.tizor.com. Authored by Prat Moghe, founder and CTO of Tizor Systems, this educational blog speaks primarily to professionals charged with security, IT and compliance for their companies as well as IT auditors, database practitioners, customers and partners focused on the data security industry.

"There are a lot of terms including data auditing, protection, leakage and encryption being thrown around right now and recent data breaches as well as an expanding roster of compliance regulations have led to heightened awareness and confusion for both the public and enterprises responsible for critical data," said Prat Moghe, founder and CTO of Tizor Systems. "My hope is that by blogging weekly about data auditing and related topics that I will provide a collaborative setting to start collectively clarifying the issues around auditing for compliance and data protection."

With more than 17 years of experience in next-generation technology, two technology start ups under his belt and a strong background in compliance, networking, security, and systems management, Prat Moghe has the track record and drive to weigh in on the data security topics that matter most to the market. As the founder and CTO of Tizor, Prat is in the unique position to have real-time insight into the latest challenges companies are facing and he will immediately give a voice to these concerns by making them heard in the blogosphere.

Designed to promote discussion, the DataAuditingBlog will address the latest trends and issues from a data auditing and protection perspective. Weekly posts will focus on topics that directly help to defining the data auditing space and relate to where data auditing is today and where it is going. As the postings progress, Prat, with occasional support of guest bloggers, will expand the scope of the discussion by commenting on how data auditing ties into hot button issues such as data theft, data breaches, compliance, and data governance. In today's posts Prat introduces the blog and tackles the subject of "What is data auditing? Why does it matter?" Follow on posts include: "An insider's look at the RSA security survey," "Data Auditing - Where is the technology today and where is it going?," "Data Auditing vs. Content Monitoring," and "Data Auditing and Data Encryption - How do you know when to use each technology for maximum compliance and data protection results?"

"While this blog will reside on the Tizor Website, it will not operate with the traditional restrictions of a corporate blog; I look forward to a lively exchange of ideas," continued Prat. "Our open comments policy will be key to achieving my ultimate goal of building a trusted community that plays a role in defining the future of data security."
