The 2012 Beacon Awards recognize IBM Business Partners who have raised the standard for delivering innovative solutions and exemplary client satisfaction. The Beacon Awards recognize innovation and achievement across a wide-range of solutions and markets to support a smarter planet. The winning solutions demonstrate maximum client value by addressing real business issues.
“BTRG is excited to have been chosen as a Beacon Award finalist. Being selected by IBM from among hundreds of nominations acknowledges BTRG’s thought-leadership in Information Governance. The Data Masking Factory is truly innovative because it enables organizations to rapidly identify and mask sensitive data across several enterprise applications in a short period of time. This provides much-needed data security for a price our customers can afford, even in a down market when budgets are tight”, says Michael Martin, BTRG Information Governance Practice Director.
BTRG’s Data Masking Factory Solution
BTRG’s Data Masking Factory is a repeatable solution that quickly digests the schema of an enterprise application to understand where the sensitive data is, how it needs to be masked, and what the data should look like when it’s complete.
The engine powering the Data Masking Factory is a combination of InfoSphere Optim™ Test Data Management and InfoSphere Optim™ Data Privacy functionality and our proprietary Masking Automation Software. The Masking Automation Software serves as an extension of the InfoSphere Optim™ product and includes automated InfoSphere Optim™ object development, application-specific access definitions, an extended algorithm library and extended country support.
The Data Masking Factory supports the market’s leading database platforms including DB2, SQL Server and Oracle.
