Dataguise, the data-centric audit and protection (DCAP) solutions provider, has announced that the company is a Bronze sponsor of the 2017 DataWorks Summit, taking place June 13-15 in San Jose.
With less than a year before the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force for organizations conducting business with residents of the European Union (EU), Dataguise experts will be on hand to engage and advise event attendees on the direct actions necessary to discover, protect, audit, and monitor personal data in Hadoop and other data repositories in order to comply with the mandate's data privacy requirements.
The DataWorks Summit is the industry's premier big data community event, providing those attending the conference with the opportunity to learn from peers and industry experts on how open source technologies enable organisations to leverage corporate data, on premises and in the cloud, to drive predictive analytics, distributed deep-learning, and artificial intelligence initiatives. Dataguise plays a key role in this mission by providing organisations with the ability to fully utilise corporate data without the risk of exposing sensitive information contained in Hadoop and other data repositories on-premises and in the cloud.
During the event, Dataguise will showcase DgSecure, the company's flagship data-centric audit and protection solution that delivers a single view of sensitive data security, policies, access, and trends for risk and compliance management—all from a single dashboard. Recent enhancements to the platform include: sensitive data monitoring for MapR, Oracle Database, and Teradata; Cloudera Navigation for Hive; structured encryption and decryption for European languages; and an enhanced REST API for multi-cloud service interoperability.
DgSecure supports IT, business, and legal professionals concerned with data privacy regulations currently on the books or that will see implementation over the next year. The software locates all sensitive data across distributed business environments and provides encryption, masking, auditing and monitoring to support Hadoop distributions and other data in structured, unstructured, or semi-structured repositories. This is especially relevant to organisations with citizen data from the European Union (EU), which will soon be subject to the Supervisory Authorities (SAs) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) who may impose fines of up to 2% of total global revenue or €10M (whichever is greater) for initial violations of non-compliance.
"While it is the responsibility of businesses to ensure compliance with GDPR, Dataguise is on call to quickly and cost-effectively approach even the most rigorous and potentially complex regulations impacting them," said JT Sison, VP, Marketing and Business Development. "With Hadoop seeing unprecedented use globally, the DataWorks Summit provides an important venue and opportunities to speak with those directing deployments of the platform. We look forward to forging partnerships with businesses at the event and providing complete data-centric auditing and protection solutions to maximize the potential of their data."
