MENTIS & TierData Partner to Provide Next Generation Security and Optimization for Mission Critical Databases

Share Article

Joint solution provides context aware data access for tighter security and improved performance for both production and non-production environments.

MENTIS Software, Inc. and TierData, Inc. are announcing a formal partnership and joint solution offering for customers by providing the combined capabilities of the MENTIS Sensitive Information Management™ platform and TierData AutoPilot data management platform for enterprise databases.

The MENTIS and TierData partnership provides customers with fine grained controls to secure and optimize both production and non-production database environments. The joint solution leverages data classifications and multi-dimensional policies to segment and secure data, providing a much higher level of context aware security and administration. In production environments users are limited to smaller, targeted and secure sets of data using a combination of TierData AutoPilot’s data segmentation and MENTIS dynamic data masking capabilities. For non-production databases AutoPilot rapidly creates intelligent subsets along business dimensions (time, business unit, region etc.) coupled with MENTIS static data masking capabilities to de-indentify and secure real data used for test and development.

According to ESG Research, managing data growth and information security initiatives are 2 of the top 3 priorities for IT. “The combination of Mentis Software and TierData as part of an integrated solution to address both initiatives provides an added benefit to those responsible for database security and performance SLAs,” says Julie Lockner, Sr Analyst and VP Data Management at Enterprise Strategy Group.

“MENTIS Sensitive Data Discovery™, automated data classification and masking combined with AutoPilot’s ability to optimize user access to targeted sets of data takes performance, operations and security for sensitive information to a new level,” says Kevin O’Malley, VP of Product Strategy for MENTIS. “One of the best ways to improve security and compliance is to limit access to a refined set of data based on user role and business context – this minimizes risk considerably.”

“TierData’s AutoPilot is the next generation of data management and performance software for complex applications and data warehouses. Leveraging MENTIS security and privacy capabilities in our deployments gives our joint customers a complete solution for production and non-production database environments that satisfy business concerns and reduce cost,” said Micah Deriso, VP of Sales and Marketing for TierData. “Our customer base realizes the benefit of AutoPilot over traditional data management solutions and with this partnership we continue to provide innovation in an industry segment that has been stagnant for years.”

The combined offering is immediately available to customers running packaged or home-grown applications on Oracle or SQL Server databases. With this announcement MENTIS and TierData will be co-marketing and selling each other’s products.
