CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 26, 2012) - Voltage Security®, the world leader in data-centric security and key management, today announced a new partnership with Informatica Corporation, the world's number one independent provider of data integration software. This partnership delivers seamless integration of Voltage's proven data-centric security platform, Voltage SecureData™ with Informatica's market-leading Data Masking software to ensure complete protection across the entire application development lifecycle, from creation to production to application retirement. Enterprises can now deploy a comprehensive solution that dramatically lowers the cost of protecting data in production and non-production environments through a flexible and effective combination of encryption, tokenization and masking capabilities.
The Informatica Data Privacy solutions enable organizations to define global policies in the heterogeneous data center leveraging built-in industry, regulatory and application templates. Sensitive data is then discovered, identified, and masked or protected with the appropriate data security technology -- complete with full monitoring and auditability.
By combining Informatica's industry leading platform for data masking and test data management and Voltage's unique capabilities in a data-centric model, supported through NIST-certified Format-Preserving Encryption, customers' sensitive data is protected in its identical structure required for production and non-production use. Whether customers need to mask data across multiple platforms, in public and private clouds, or integrate big data projects and operational business applications, Voltage's encryption capabilities combined with Informatica's Data Masking capabilities ensure that, even if data is compromised, the value of the data is protected against any malicious or incidental breach, representing a major step forward in reducing the risks of a data breach.
"This partnership is built around a core principal shared by Voltage and Informatica; companies need more data-centric capabilities when managing information integration," said Jeremy Stieglitz, vice president of business development at Voltage. "Voltage enables a common, consistent way to deliver data-centric, end-to-end protection of sensitive information, while preserving the value of the data as it is used, shared and reused for business process across the organization. Information remains protected as it flows across extended collaborative communities, clouds and big data integration projects."
"Together Informatica and Voltage uniquely lower the cost of protecting production and non-production environments while preserving the format and realism of data for testing, development and production use," said Brad Kern, senior vice president, Worldwide Alliances, Informatica. "Customers want the flexibility that is delivered by Voltage and Informatica, with the ability to execute a full variety of security solutions, tokenization, masking and encryption across the application development and data privacy lifecycle."
