Ingrian Networks Data Discovery Tool Finds Sensitive Data in Databases
New tool saves IT professionals time by quickly locating data to be encrypted
Redwood City, Calif., Jan. 31, 2007 -- Ingrian ® Networks Inc. today announced the release of an innovative discovery tool that helps enterprise users identify and locate sensitive information throughout their databases. The Ingrian data discovery tool can scan databases for clear text account numbers and data including credit card, bank account, and Social Security numbers, and e-mail addresses, helping database administrators and security directors quickly identify where sensitive data exists -- saving time and enabling them to better secure personally identifiable information (PII).
Since the discovery tool can locate clear text data, and users can define their own regular expressions to scan for, it is also can act as a compliance validation tool. Data that has already been encrypted and stored in cipher text will not appear in the search results of the discovery tool. Therefore, organizations can validate that the encryption they have in place is effectively safeguarding their data. The discovery tool currently works with Oracle 8i, 9i, 10g and SQL Server 2000, 2005 databases.
The Ingrian data discovery tool is a Java-based application that can quickly and easily install on any platform supporting Java Virtual Machines (JVM). To download a free copy, please visit Ingrian’s Web site at: http://www.ingrian.com/info/reg_ddt.html
