Dataguise has announced the general availability of Dataguise DgSecure® 6.0, the company’s next-generation data-centric security platform. DgSecure 6.0 enables businesses to take complete ownership of sensitive data across all source types within the enterprise, from traditional relational databases to big data platforms, as well as unstructured data.

DgSecure 6.0 delivers a comprehensive monitoring solution for all data source types, allowing users to quickly understand what, where, and how sensitive data is being 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 for total ownership of sensitive data in all its forms.

DgSecure 6.0 provides for total ownership of sensitive data with new features that include:

  • Compatibility with all data platforms and source types. This includes structured, semi-structured to completely unstructured, in environments ranging from the Cloud to on-premises computing sources.
  • Management of all sensitive data life cycle phases, from detection, protection, and monitoring, for total governance.
  • Support for the widest range of IT and data management frameworks, to enhance the operational experience of data stewards and CISOs.

While traditional IT monitoring solutions for firewalls, networks, or applications can result in months of analysis before a potential breach is spotted, DgSecure 6.0 is focused solely on safeguarding the truly sensitive data in an organization to quickly detect and protect against real threats. DgSecure 6.0 simplifies creation of data security governance policies using built-in or custom templates, thereby expediting the process. The solution then analyzes actions taken on sensitive data by people, systems, and devices in real time. If a policy violation occurs, the platform generates a precise, real-time alert in response to unauthorized or unusual data access.

“Hortonworks is dedicated to expanding and empowering the big data ecosystem, and accelerating innovation and adoption of Connected Data Platforms,” said Matt Morgan, vice president of product and alliance marketing, Hortonworks. “We congratulate Dataguise on the launch of Dataguise DgSecure 6.0 and look forward to working with them to enhance the next-generation data architecture.”

“Many organizations lack a proper framework to accurately detect, protect, and monitor their confidential data in real-time,” said Manmeet Singh, CEO, Dataguise. “DgSecure 6.0 is our answer to enterprise-wide security and compliance across an organization’s entire data infrastructure. With the newest release, customers gain the insight and protection they need to confidently unlock the full potential of their data. We look forward to introducing our latest innovations at the Hadoop Summit this week.”
