Multi-billion dollar, global chain of department and warehouse stores, with over one million employees.
A major global retailer needed to protect the identities of their many employees, primarily their Social Security Numbers (SSN), according to internal privacy policies.
This meant applying protection capabilities in the Teradata IDW, as well as Pivotal HD and SQL Server.
Subsequent drivers included protecting the identities of their customers to enable secure analytical and operational processes according to the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) reporting requirements.
Fine-grained data tokenization was applied to key data elements that allowed the IT team to leverage the data in a protected form. The test environment remains full-functioning but unauthorized users are unable to access or grant access rights to sensitive data in the clear.
Critical to the success of the solution, Protegrity also enabled the CISO to determine and specify what data is to be protected, where it is to be enforced, who will have access and when and how the data will be protected.
Enterprise key management (EKM) capabilities are integrated into the platform and provide an easy-to-use system for managing keys. Built-in comprehensive auditing and reporting provides the insight needed to track usage and patterns.
