Vormetric Partners with Informatica Secure@Source
Informatica recently launched the industry’s first data security intelligence offering, Secure@Source. Informatica’s Data Security Group Director of Business Development, Christophe Hassaine, interviewed our partner Vormetric’s Vice President of Product Management, Derek Tumulak to get his take on how our complementary solutions address the need for more data centric security.
Christophe: Derek, tell us a little more about how Vormetric customers benefit from your offerings.
Derek: Vormetric provides data security solutions. We help organizations protect sensitive information assets and we enable them to achieve regulatory compliance and security requirements. We also help them protect against data breaches. Our solution benefits customers by protecting information in database and file servers, big data, and cloud environments.
Christophe: What are the shifts in the industry you see and what new challenges it creates?
Derek: The challenges we see in the market today are data breaches that are occurring more frequently. The largest gaps are in the fact that historically organizations have focused on anti-virus and anti-malware solutions. Even today many organizations continue to focus on network/perimeter and host based solutions when they need to be more focused on data-centric security solutions that bring the controls closer to the data itself. Organizations need to be implementing encryption, tokenization, access control and comprehensive auditing solutions in order to better protect their sensitive data in any environment.
Christophe: Why is data security intelligence so important to your customers?
Derek: Data security intelligence is important for our customers since they not only need to understand and classify the data they have but also need to understand potentially anomalous/suspicious access patterns and even failed attempts to access sensitive information by various users and applications. Based on this type of threat intelligence and analytics organizations can be proactive about adapting their access policies particularly in situations where an organization may be under attack.
Christophe: How will the integration between Vormetric and Secure@Source benefit your customers?
Derek: We are integrating with Informatica Secure@Source in two distinct areas. The first allows customers to implement encryption, tokenization, and sophisticated access controls in environments that Informatica identifies as having sensitive information and potentially inadequate data security controls. The second integration is around providing rich data access audit information to Secure@Source for increased threat intelligence and analytics. This benefits our common customers by giving them an end-to-end solution and a comprehensive view around the data security lifecycle. Customers can discover, protect, and continuously monitor sensitive data.
