Dataguise Announces Advanced Sensitive Data Discovery for Amazon Redshift, RDS, and S3

A new press release reports, “Dataguise, a technology leader in secure business execution, today announced that the Dataguise DgSecure® solution for global sensitive data governance now supports sensitive data discovery on Amazon Redshift and Amazon RDS, as well as Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). DgSecure helps data-driven enterprises move to the cloud with confidence by detecting, protecting, auditing, and monitoring sensitive information (e.g., PII, PHI, PCI data) across on-premises and cloud-based environments. With DgSecure, users organization-wide can tap into the data processing power and efficiencies of the AWS cloud to maximize the business value of their information while maintaining total ownership of all known and unknown sensitive data.”

The release continues, “According to International Data Corporation (IDC), ‘More than 43% of organizations expect that within five years, the majority of their IT capability will be delivered through public cloud services, and that within three years, they will access 78% of IT resources through some form of cloud. New solutions born on the cloud and traditional solutions migrating to the cloud will steadily pull more customers and their data into cloud-based infrastructure.’ Dataguise DgSecure now scans for sensitive information stored on Amazon Redshift, RDS, and S3 and also provides ongoing monitoring of sensitive data in S3 throughout its lifecycle. The solution features transparent, role-based sensitive asset provisioning on the Amazon Elastic Map Reduce (Amazon EMR) platform so that users have access to sensitive data hosted in these environments through DgSecure role-based access policies.”
