Dataguise, a provider of sensitive data governance solutions, is partnering with WHISHWORKS, a provider of IT services and systems integration, to help European companies strengthen the security and compliance of their data infrastructures.
WHISHWORKS will offer DgSecure to customers within its areas of operation, including France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
According to the vendors, the partnership is focused on helping organizations to overcome difficulties in unlocking big data’s potential because of the compliance requirements that will be imposed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May, 2018.
DgSecure is an effective solution for ensuring data security and compliance when leveraging single or multiple Hadoop distributions for analytics and other purposes, said Tony Ward, head of big data consultancy at WHISHWORKS. The integration expands WHISHWORKS’ key competencies across multiple data management platforms and supports its vision of improving the customer experience without unnecessary risk, he added.
DgSecure delivers a comprehensive data security and compliance solution, allowing users to understand what, where, and how sensitive data is detected, protected, and accessed across the enterprise. The advanced features in version 6.0 provide all-in-one sensitive data governance, privacy compliance, and risk mitigation. The software supports a wide range of IT and data management frameworks and enhances the operational experience for data stewards and CISOs managing these systems.
WHISHWORKS and Dataguise will jointly present a webcast on the challenges and strategies for ensuring GDPR compliance
