MENTIS announces the release of MENTIS 8.1.4. This robust new version includes performance enhancements, adds new methodologies, and extends support to new platforms. Among the new features are agent-based discovery as an enhancement for sensitive data discovery and a web proxy method for cloud application solutions; in addition, dynamic data masking for databases is extended to DB2 LUW and ZOS mainframe platforms.
MENTIS continues to break new ground in sensitive data discovery. The agent-based discovery methodology combines with optimized algorithms to boost functionality and performance.
“We passionately believe in continual innovation (this is 56 releases in the last 14 years) and we continue our mission of helping keep enterprise sensitive data safe – wherever it is along the information lifecycle — with products that can get out ahead of the challenges our customers face. The added capabilities featured in 8.1.4 in sensitive data discovery and masking reinforce the leadership and commitment to innovation of MENTIS in the enterprise data security space.”
Rajesh Parthasarathy, MENTIS’ founder, and CEO
Suresh Sundaram, Executive Director at MENTIS, added, “MENTIS is winning customer and industry trust through the active deployment of our solutions in complex and demanding environments. To do business as usual in the global economy requires our enterprise customers in the US and Europe to step up their security and compliance programs. They rely on MENTIS as a crucial partner in their efforts, and MENTIS thrives on the challenge. Our latest release brings new functionality, added flexibility, and performance enhancements for compliance enforcement, cross-border data access, test data management, and the securing of sensitive data in cloud applications and data warehouses.”
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 never since stopped. Known for its responsiveness to the moving target that is risk and compliance, MENTIS continues to bring powerful products to the market, the result of the company’s deep analysis of new trends in risk, along with a collaboration with its customers to assess and weigh their current challenges.
The company’s latest release makes the MENTIS platform the only integrated end-to-end platform where discovery, masking, monitoring, and retirement of sensitive data are available for both Non-Production and Production environments, and also now support both structured and unstructured data, whether in the cloud or on premise. Its segregation of duties functionalities means MENTIS also allows stakeholders across the IT, business, and security and compliance groups to collaborate to achieve comprehensive and consistent data security.
MENTIS helps protects the data of some of the most iconic industries and institutions in the world. Its 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 global leaders in the highly regulated financial services and healthcare industries.
