Press Release Solix Technologies, Inc. and Carahsoft Partner to Provide Enterprise Data Management Solutions for Government Database Archiving, Test Data Management, Data Masking and Application Retirement Solutions Help Contain the High Costs of Managing Enterprise Data and Improve Security Santa Clara, CA – August 22, 2012 – Solix Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise data management solutions, and Carahsoft, the trusted government IT solutions provider, announce a distribution partnership where Carahsoft will distribute Solix products and solutions under their GSA schedule. The partnership provides solutions to federal, state and local government agencies for Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) and data privacy. The Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite (EDMS) offers an integrated set of tools to address the challenges associated with data growth and data security. By tiering data through an ILM framework, database archiving and application retirement solutions help manage the enormous data growth challenge faced by many large organizations. Through test data management (TDM), database administrators are able to create non production database subsets quickly and easily and also reduce non production storage requirements by up to 70 percent. Data discovery and data masking combined with TDM enables sensitive data to be masked “on-the-fly” to meet NIST 800-53 compliance mandates. Whether deployed on-premise or in the cloud, Solix EDMS helps agencies manage data growth and reduce the security exposure of storing personally identifiable information. Solix EDMS supports a broad range of packaged applications with out-of-the-box templates including Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise Applications, JD Edwards, Siebel, BaaN as well as custom applications. “Solix has developed best-of-breed information lifecycle management solutions to meet the needs of the modern data centers, and we are excited to add these to our GSA schedule,” said Patrick Gallagher, vice president of Carahsoft’s Cloud Computing Solutions practice which also includes SAP and Salesforce.com. “Solix’s database archiving and application retirement solutions offer great efficiencies for our customers and our reseller partners.” “Solix manages data retention and protects sensitive data throughout the information management lifecycle allowing databases to operate at peak performance and reduced cost” said John Ottman, chairman of Solix Technologies, Inc. “We are excited to work with Carahsoft, and especially government IT managers, to improve application performance, reduce expense and enhance data security.” Solix products and solutions are available immediately via Carahsoft’s GSA Schedule GS-35F-0119Y.
