Gartner Positions Oracle in Leaders Quadrant for Data Masking
By Troy Kitch on Feb 14, 2013
According to Gartner, “Adopting data masking helps enterprises raise the level of security and privacy assurance against abuses. At the same time, data masking helps enterprises meet compliance requirements with the security and privacy standards recommended by regulating/auditing authorities.”
Gartner continued, “…we expect a relatively high speed of technology maturity for data masking. By 2016, the static data masking [SDM] market will reach the Plateau of Productivity in Gartner's Hype Cycle, with approximately 50% of the target audience adopting it.”
“With more structured and unstructured data in enterprise databases, companies need simple and consistent tools to comply with data privacy regulations and mask sensitive data during application development, testing or data analysis,” said Vipin Samar, Vice President of Database Security Product Development, Oracle. “Oracle is the world’s #1 database provider, integrating best-in-class hardware and software to deliver extreme performance and ensure robust database security for our customers.”
