MENTIS Featured in Gartner Market Guide for the Fourth Straight Year

Gartner’s most recent Market Guide for Data Masking publication, again features MENTIS as a leader in the space.

The report focuses on the critical elements of the data masking lifecycle, which include static data masking, dynamic data masking (repository, proxy, API, and application deployment), data redaction for unstructured and semi-structured data, and data and relationship discovery.

The November 26th report states, “By 2022, consistent enterprise-wide use of Data Masking or similar deidentification techniques will increase to 50%, an increase from 20% in 2018.” They added, “There is a definite convergence in data de-identification techniques. 75% of all data security vendors will be offering masking, encryption, and tokenization capabilities by 2022.”

MENTIS has pioneered the data masking space since its founding and has added new capabilities with each release as the threat landscape evolves. MENTIS’ sensitive data security platform protects sensitive data across its life in a system, from sensitive data discovery, static data anonymization, and dynamic data anonymization, to data monitoring and data retirement. These capabilities, combined with the data firewalls and two-factor authentication, make MENTIS a uniquely comprehensive security solution.

.“The threat and compliance environments are constantly evolving, and this also fuels the need to protect the data sufficiently. With MENTIS, you can secure your data without affecting day-to-day business needs. Independent mentions from respected analysts like Gartner reinforces our focus and passion for innovating and leading the market with technology solutions in data and application security that drive real value to customers.”

Rajesh Parthasarathy, CEO of MENTIS

MENTIS Director Suresh Sundaram continued, “We are extremely proud to be featured in Gartner’s data masking market guide, consecutively for the fourth year. MENTIS has been a visionary in this data security, and we are glad to have this independent affirmation.”

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.

MENTIS protects data across on-premise, hosted, and cloud environments; Production, Pre-Production, Non-Production, mainframe and relational databases; and file servers.
