Our joint customers can take advantage of MENTIS Sensitive Data Discovery™ to gain rapid time-to-value and leverage and extend investments in Oracle technology
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 22, 2010
MENTIS Software, the leading provider of Sensitive Information Management™ solutions for enterprise applications and databases is announcing availability of its latest release - MENTIS 7. The new release provides advanced Sensitive Data Discovery™ capabilities for Oracle applications and database customers to help them document and manage sensitive data locations as well as program and user access levels. Scan results of the discovery process are maintained in the MENTIS 7 metadata repository, providing critical information to IT managers responsible for Oracle security and audit management.
As personal and corporate data gets spread across a wide range of applications and databases, the challenge of locating and securing all sensitive information goes up dramatically. According to the Ponemon Institute the average cost of a single data breach incident in the US is over $6M. Data breaches in the US and around the globe continue to climb according to the Verizon Data Breach Report 2010. One of the largest growing concerns is internal breaches caused by authorized and privileged user access. Most breaches are caused unintentionally or through lack of process controls but the negative impacts can be even more devastating than malicious attacks from the outside.
The IT organization gets tasked with the huge responsibility of securing data across a wide range of applications, databases and users. “Oracle provides strong database security tools but customers need help identifying specific sets of data to secure.” says Rajesh Parthasarathy, Founder and CEO of MENTIS Software. “We are really excited about MENTIS 7. Our joint customers can take advantage of MENTIS Sensitive Data Discovery™ to gain rapid time-to-value and leverage and extend investments in Oracle technology. With MENTIS customers no longer have to guess where all their sensitive data resides, plus we help them stay in sync with application, database and legislative changes.”
As organizations rollout new releases and customize their applications it’s imperative that they discover and document where sensitive data is located and how it is accessed. Companies need to perform regular checks on their applications and databases to uncover potential security holes and respond quickly for compliance and audit purposes. MENTIS 7 automates Sensitive Data Discovery™ for Oracle applications and databases for the entire application lifecycle, from development through implementation and maintenance. In addition, MENTIS provides compliance templates for PII, PCI and PHI that are easy to maintain and allow rapid alignment with changing legislation and mandates.
Oracle Database provides robust security, and is a key reason why customers choose Oracle for mission critical applications. Oracle Database Vault, Oracle Audit Vault and Oracle Advanced Security provide comprehensive security controls.
MENTIS Software is a Gold level member of the Oracle Partner Network and is currently exhibiting at Oracle OpenWorld 2010 from September 20th through the 22nd. Attendees can drop by booth #3508 at Moscone West for a demonstration of MENTIS 7.
