Dataguise and Green Light Technology Team to Help Companies in Latin America Detect and Protect Sensitive Information
FREMONT, CA — (Marketwired) — 04/28/16 — Dataguise, a technology leader in secure business execution, today announced a partnership with master IT distributor Green Light Technology (GLT), extending availability of Dataguise DgSecure® to enterprises throughout Latin America. The Dataguise partnership with GLT brings a unique depth of technical expertise to organizations with challenges in information security and compliance. Availability of Dataguise DgSecure complements GLT’s solution portfolio to safely unlock the value of big data, databases, and unstructured information for business success.
According to a report by the Bureau of National Affairs on privacy laws in Latin America, “Thirteen jurisdictions in Latin America now have comprehensive privacy laws including: Argentina, Aruba, Bahamas, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Trinidad, Tobago, and Uruguay. The two laws that are most closely aligned with the European laws (and thus deemed to the European Commission to provide adequate protection) are Argentina and Uruguay. Other countries such as Brazil, Ecuador, and territories such as the Cayman Islands have draft bills that have either been or are expected to be introduced to their legislatures. In addition, Chile, which has had a high-level data protection law since 1999, may amend its existing law in 2015 to include registration, impose cross-border restrictions and establish a data protection regulator.”(1)
Headquartered in Maitland, Florida, GLT provides custom development, professional services, and the recommendation, implementation and customization of best-of-breed software products to organizations throughout Latin America. The solution provider builds solutions that create a bridge between legacy and advanced technologies to meet the needs of companies in a range of industries. GLT works with a number of organizations to leverage business analytics powered by Hadoop and other big data platforms. Dataguise now supports these efforts by GLT with cradle to grave protection of the data to ensure that sensitive information is detected upon creation, protected from unauthorized access, and monitored in real-time to prevent threats from impacting business operations.
The flagship offering by Dataguise is DgSecure, a highly automated data-centric security platform that precisely monitors access and activities associated with sensitive data such as email addresses, Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, or other confidential or personally identifiable information (PII). The solution works seamlessly with all leading big data and database platform vendors. DgSecure is also ideal for protecting vast pools of difficult to aggregate unstructured data for end-to-end protection of sensitive data.
According to a data breach industry forecast by Experian, “The risk of experiencing a data breach is higher than ever with almost half of organizations suffering at least one security incident in the last 12 months. To address this, 48 percent of organizations increased investments in security technologies in the same timeframe, and 73 percent acknowledged the likelihood of a breach by developing a data breach response plan. Showcased by shifts in leadership at companies that suffered a public data breach in the last year, it is clear that security can no longer be viewed as just an IT issue. Scrutiny of corporate leadership’s management of security may continue to increase in the form of legal and regulatory action after a major incident.”(2)
“Data security is receiving high profile attention from Global 2000 enterprises, including many across Latin America,” said Jaime Penagos, VP of Business Development at Green Light Technology (GLT). “Many of our customers are concerned about the exposure of sensitive information and looking for solutions to address this threat. While perimeter security solutions are critical, DgSecure by Dataguise delivers a unique data-centric advantage that allows enterprises to safely unlock the full potential of their information assets.”
“Data driven organizations around the world remain at high risk from internal and external threats to their most precious informational assets,” said JT Sison, VP, Marketing and Business Development, Dataguise. “Our emphasis on sensitive data, from detection to protection and monitoring, makes DgSecure an important security layer that allows our customers to operate safely under compliance mandates. This alliance with GLT extends access to DgSecure, thereby ensuring secure business execution for organizations throughout Latin America.”
