Solix Technologies, Inc. Announces Data Masking and Data Validation Downloads for Sybase

Free, Easy to Use Tools Install in Minutes, Mask Sensitive Data and Test Data Integrity

Santa Clara, CA – February 11, 2013 – Solix Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise data management solutions, today announced Solix EDMS Data Masking and Solix EDMS Data Validation Standard Edition (SE) for Sybase ASE. Solix EDMS Standard Edition downloads are free and deploy in minutes.

Masking sensitive non-production data is a PCI and PHI compliance requirement. Data masking replaces personally identifiable information, such as a credit card or social security numbers, with contextually accurate, albeit fictionalized data. Because masked data is no longer confidential, it may be safely stored for non-production use without the need for database encryption.

Joseph Feiman, Ph.D. Research VP and Gartner Fellow at Gartner, Inc., describes the business impact of database masking as follows:

“Sensitive data (such as credit card numbers), personally identifiable information (such as U.S. Social Security numbers), medical diagnoses, and even non-personal sensitive data (such as corporate financial information and intellectual property) are exposed to abuse or negligence from enterprise employees and outsiders. Adopting data masking will help enterprises raise the level of security and privacy assurance against insider and outsider abuses. At the same time, data masking will make enterprises compliant with the security and privacy standards recommended by regulating/auditing organizations.” 1

Data validation is also an essential element of the Test Data Management lifecycle. By comparing test results to a copy of the original, data validation establishes a control process for moving and transforming data. Solix EDMS Data Validation Standard is also available as a Free Download.

“CIOs have established data security and data integrity as a high priority,” said Sai Gundavelli, CEO, Solix Technologies, Inc. “Extending our standard edition to support Sybase databases helps us reach a much bigger community.”
