Solutions for balancing data democratization with regulatory compliance. Sweeping data privacy regulations are forcing businesses to understand and simplify the architecture of their data and applications. For organizations needing to comply with these regulations, the Quest Sensitive Data Governance solutions promote knowledge of the data ecosystem and provide the mechanisms needed to protect sensitive data while still enabling data democratization.
Absence of data intelligence across the organization creates the potential for sensitive data exposure. Quest tools for defining sensitive data combat this lack of visibility by building data literacy and relating data assets to business processes and physical locations across the enterprise.
For organizations that don’t know where sensitive data resides in their ecosystem, Quest’s data governance solution provides the means to scan databases for metadata that indicates the presence of sensitive data.
Failure to protect sensitive data throughout the enterprise can have serious consequences – from high-profile data breaches to significant fines. Quest tools make it possible to mask, encrypt and redact Oracle and SQL Server data; harden endpoints against intruders; prevent unauthorized access to backups; and create compliant audit trails.
