Leading data masking vendor, Grid Tools, to exhibit at Infosecurity Europe

Press release from: Grid-Tools Ltd

Oxford, UK, March 2011 – Grid Tools, the leading vendor of test data generation, data masking and test data management software has announced they will be attending Infosecurity in London. The event, which is the largest information security event in Europe, will be taking place between April 19th – 21st at Earls Court.

Grid Tools will be showcasing their data masking solutions, Fast Data Masking™ and Simple Data Masking™, which are both well known in the industry.

Data masking, which is the process of de-identifying or obfuscating production data so it can be used securely and anonymously in non production environments, help organizations comply with data regulations like the PCI DSS or the Data Protection Act. Ultimately, data masking ensures all procedures in testing and development remain secure.

Infosecurity will attract top level executives in information security, and Grid Tools plan to focus on the importance of security in testing and development arenas which is an area that is often overlooked.

“Gartner has published that over 80 per cent of organizations are still using live production data in testing and development,” explains Huw Price, Grid Tools Managing Director. “This is unacceptable, especially considering there are quick and easy solutions out there to completely secure the data in these environments, which also keep the referential integrity of the original database. We think Infosecurity will provide a great platform for us to present our data masking solutions to people who may not know otherwise”.
Huw will also be speaking about data masking at Infosecurity on Thursday the 21st of April at 1:20pm, where he, along with a key customer, will be presenting a case study on the successful implementation of a data masking solution at one of the largest banks in the UK.
