As a Cloudera Certified Technology, Protegrity Delivers Industry-leading Protection for Sensitive Data Across the Enterprise

SALT LAKE CITY—Aug.18, 2020Protegrity, the data-security solutions provider, today announced that it has been certified on the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP). Protegrity’s data-protection platform is now a Cloudera Certified Technology and has been tested, validated, and certified to work with CDP. The Protegrity platform’s CDP certification creates a trusted and protected environment where customers’ data can flow freely and securely.

“Enterprises are analyzing massive amounts of data from a variety of systems, tools, and applications every day. As companies accelerate digital transformation and increase reliance on the cloud, securing that data becomes even more challenging. This shift requires added protection to comply with data-governance practices and privacy regulations,” said Jay Chitnis, vice president of alliances at Protegrity. “We’ve expanded our partnership with Cloudera to integrate Protegrity’s industry-leading data-protection platform with the Cloudera Data Platform to secure customers’ sensitive data wherever it resides–whether on premises, in the cloud, or in hybrid environments. The partnership enables customers to unlock the value of data across workloads without compromising security.”

Protegrity for CDP Protects Enterprise-Wide Data Initiatives

Cloud-based applications and workloads are proliferating as businesses prioritize digital transformation initiatives with more urgency in the current economy. It’s no longer sufficient to merely protect the perimeter and endpoints. Protegrity secures data no matter where it is, whether at rest, in transit or in use. The company’s data-protection platform is designed to centralize, simplify, and enable self-service data security across an enterprise’s customer base and those of its business partners. Using sophisticated tokenization technology, Protegrity’s approach replaces individual data elements, such as a consumer’s name, with a token. This process de-identifies personally identifiable information (PII) to protect it in a data store while maintaining its use for analytics and other applications.

“CDP was designed for both IT and the business, delivering cloud-native analytics in a secure, cost-efficient, and scalable manner,” said Gary Green, vice president of strategic partnerships at Cloudera. “Protegrity adds an important layer of data protection to any workload on CDP, so customers can scale seamlessly and securely without slowing down mission-critical data initiatives.”

CDP is a new approach to enterprise data, anywhere from the Edge to AI. By simplifying operations, it reduces the time to onboard new use cases across the organization. The platform uses machine learning to intelligently autoscale workloads up and down for more cost-effective use of cloud infrastructure. With Cloudera's Shared Data Experience (SDX), the security and governance capabilities in CDP, IT can confidently deliver secure analytics running against data anywhere. CDP manages data in any environment, including multiple public clouds, bare metal, private cloud, and hybrid cloud. The Cloudera Data Platform offers game-changing technology that lets companies harness diverse data to solve important business problems.

With the latest support for CDP, Protegrity continues to expand its trusted network of data protectors, creating environments where data can flow freely while being protected so businesses can focus on innovation and operational excellence.
