MENTIS Software (, the pioneer in data masking and enterprise data security products, announced its inclusion in DBTA 100: The Companies That Matter Most in Data. This list is created by Database Trends and Applications (DBTA) magazine and recognizes companies that are meeting evolving market demands through innovation in software, services, and hardware.

“We are proud to have MENTIS recognized in DBTA Top 100,” said Rajesh Parthasarathy, CEO of MENTIS. “We’ve been the visionary and early pioneer in the data security space, building solutions that adapt to and anticipate risks that organizations face. Inclusion in this list speaks directly to our approach and accomplishments – and we’re pleased to have independent affirmation. Our offerings continue to break new ground. In fact, our most recent product release, iVerify, is the only solution that brings two-factor authentication to both enterprise database and application connections.”

According to the announcement from DBTA, “The world of data management is constantly changing. The DBTA 100 is our way of recognizing vendors who are evolving with the times and leading the charge to address new opportunities and requirements. Today, data is on the move, streaming in to organizations and being stored in more repositories of greater variety than ever before. In transit and at rest, that data must be protected but also made available to more users so they can quickly glean insights and react to new opportunities.”

MENTIS is the leading solutions provider for at-risk data, starting with iDiscover, which locates sensitive data and identifies the programs involved. MENTIS’ masking, iMask and iScramble — combined with iMonitor — wraps security around the data where it resides. iRetire and iSubset further reduce exposure. MENTIS offers the only complete, integrated solution that pro-actively tackles risk to sensitive data at exposure points along the information lifecycle, and can be used in all IT environments.

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