Voltage Security Partners with Informatica

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Voltage Security, a company that deals in data-centric security and key management solutions, recently announced that it has partnered with Informatica Corporation, an independent provider of data integration software. Voltage Security will integrate its data-centric security platform, Voltage SecureData with Informatica's Data Masking software to provide clients protection across the entire application development lifecycle, from creation to production to application retirement.

Voltage SecureData unites end-to-end encryption, tokenization, and data masking to protect PCI cardholder data and all other sensitive information while minimizing impact to business processes, work flow, and applications. Utilizing Voltage Security innovations like Voltage Identity-Based Encryption and Voltage Format-Preserving Encryption, Voltage SecureData is the only comprehensive data protection platform that secures data as it is captured, processed, and stored across a variety of devices, operating systems, databases, and applications used by enterprises, merchants, and service providers.

Informatica Dynamic Data Masking is high-performance, scalable data masking software. It integrates with LDAP, ActiveDirectory, and identity access management software to block or mask sensitive or confidential information from unauthorized access to production or near-production databases. Informatica Dynamic Data Masking dynamically masks sensitive information and blocks, audits, and alerts end users, IT personnel, and outsourced teams who access sensitive information while ensuring quick compliance with privacy regulations.

"This partnership is built around a core principal shared by Voltage and Informatica; companies need more data-centric capabilities when managing information integration," said Jeremy Stieglitz, vice president of business development at Voltage, in a statement. "Voltage enables a common, consistent way to deliver data-centric, end-to-end protection of sensitive information, while preserving the value of the data as it is used, shared and reused for business process across the organization. Information remains protected as it flows across extended collaborative communities, clouds and big data integration projects."

Brad Kern, senior vice president, Worldwide Alliances, Informatica, said, "Customers want the flexibility that is delivered by Voltage and Informatica, with the ability to execute a full variety of security solutions, tokenization, masking and encryption across the application development and data privacy lifecycle."
