ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Camouflage Software Inc., a leading provider of intelligent data discovery and data masking solutions, today announced that for the third consecutive year it has been positioned by Gartner as a challenger in its most recent data masking Magic Quadrant report. Cited as a "pioneer" in data masking, Camouflage's challenger position was strengthened this year with praise for its offering of Dynamic Data Masking for relational database management systems and for XML messaging systems, along with its added ability to mask big data for Apache Hadoop and Cloudera distribution.
The positioning in this recent Magic Quadrant falls in line with Camouflage's plans to expand upon what is quickly becoming a top data security need and priority for businesses: data discovery. While data masking has rapidly become a recognized must-have component for complete IT security, the one invisible threat that has been plaguing even the most locked-down organizations has been hidden or disparate sensitive data at-rest. Without having a complete map of all data within the organization's sensitive data landscape, a business is almost as vulnerable to losses as though it had no data security in place at all.
"Camouflage has built a solid reputation in providing the pioneering data masking product platform, so we are thrilled to continually be recognized by Gartner,” said Camouflage President and CEO, Kevin Duggan. “We've enabled the world’s leading enterprises to stay ahead of threats and now we are especially proud to be able to take data protection even further. By expanding our data discovery technology as a unique offering (Camouflage Sensitive Data Analysis (SDA)), enterprises will have a true awareness of where their sensitive data is, and will be even better positioned to review and analyze crucial information.”
In addition to expanding upon Camouflage SDA, Camouflage continues to bolster its Enterprise Data Masking Solution that is relied upon by leading companies in vertical markets including financial services, healthcare, insurance, and higher education. In addition, 2015 will see Camouflage expanding operations to end-customers, as well as growing its efforts through Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Value Added Resellers (VARs).
