MENTIS, the pioneer in data and application security software, has been rated as an innovator with top scores in sensitive data discovery and masking in the 2019 Test Data Management Market Update from Bloor Research. The report is an outcome of an in-depth platform assessment and a competitive comparison completed by the Bloor Research team that focused on market trends and assessed vendor capabilities in sensitive data discovery, data masking, synthetic data generation, test data provisioning, data virtualization and ease of use of in test data management.

In addition, Bloor Research in their MENTIS InBrief report says, “MENTIS is a broadly capable data security platform and test data management solution. It provides excellent, comprehensive data discovery capabilities as well as flexible static data masking that can be utilized in several different ways (notably, in conjunction with dynamic data masking). If you are interested in achieving test data management via subsetting, MENTIS should definitely be on your shortlist.”

“MENTIS was started with a vision to protect sensitive data in both non-production and production environments. The proliferation of extensive internal and external access to these environments always create huge data protection risks. MENTIS’ discovery and masking solutions can discover and protect sensitive data, while enabling development and testing teams to access usable data for their purposes.”
