MENTIS Announces Release 8.1

MENTIS, the pioneer in data masking and enterprise data security products, today announced the release of MENTIS 8.1. The update further enhances the efficiency of their market-leading data discovery process, bringing more efficiency to the process and enhanced granular control for the enterprise.

With this release, MENTIS also fully integrates iVerify into the solution set. The company’s latest innovation, iVerify is the market’s only two-factor authentication solution for both applications and databases. MENTIS 8.1 also extends support for additional data sources across iDiscover (Data Discovery), iScramble (Static Data Masking), and iMask (Dynamic Data Masking) solutions.

MENTIS 8.1 updates the company’s ground-breaking MENTIS 8 that enabled security in critical data stores such as unstructured data, data in the cloud, and data in mainframe databases, and added Format Preserving Encryption option to its existing masking and tokenization methods.

“Six months after our release of what is recognized as the most advanced enterprise platform for data security and compliance — MENTIS 8 — we have released version 8.1. This update underscores our commitment to innovation and customer success. MENTIS 8.1 makes the solution even more efficient and suitable for large enterprises who are taking on new challenges ranging from GDPR compliance to the security requirements for cross-border sharing of data. We will continue to build security and compliance solutions that enable our customers to act on the ‘what’s next’ for their businesses.”

Rajesh Parthasarathy, MENTIS’ founder, and CEO


Founded in 2004, MENTIS was one of the first companies in what was then a fledgling data-security market. Guided by a visionary founder with a deep grounding in both business and technology, MENTIS immediately began to innovate and has since never stopped.

MENTIS’ sensitive data security solutions proactively tackle sensitive data risk along the full information lifecycle. In addition to the company’s groundbreaking discovery solution for sensitive data, the platform also includes static and dynamic data masking, continuous monitoring, and retirement solutions for meeting security and compliance mandates. MENTIS’ masking includes the industry’s ONLY conditional and location-aware dynamic data masking, along with tokenization and format-preserving encryption anonymization methods with customizable libraries.

The enterprise-ready platform uses shared sensitive data intelligence and a common database architecture across products; brings clear segregation of duties capabilities; and adds ease of implementation on a low-overhead/high-performance architecture. The solutions work across on premise, hosted, and cloud environments, and on Production, Pre Production, Non Production, mainframe and relational databases, and file servers.

Gartner has featured MENTIS since 2008: first, as a Cool Vendor; in their 2012 inaugural Magic Quadrant for Data Masking, as a Visionary. From 2013 on, as a Challenger.

MENTIS helps protects the data of some of the most iconic industries and institutions in the world. Our customer roster includes internet commerce pioneers and national airlines; higher education institutions ranging from the Ivy League to Land Grant schools; international industrial behemoths and retail giants; and household names in the highly regulated financial services and healthcare industries.
