Protegrity Database Protector Achieves Oracle Exadata Optimized Status

Protegrity Database Protector for Oracle Exadata Gains 7x and 15x Performance Increase Running with Oracle Exadata Database Machine

STAMFORD, CT – October 15, 2015 – Protegrity today announced it has earned Oracle Exadata Optimized status through Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), demonstrating that Protegrity Database Protector for Oracle Exadata has been tested and tuned on Oracle Exadata Database Machine to deliver speed, scalability and reliability to customers.

Protegrity is a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork. Protegrity’s patented Database Protector can perform column level data protection and help to transparently provide an additional layer of security to applications that use the database being protected. Protegrity’s Database Protector for Oracle Exadata supports Oracle Database and Oracle Exadata Database Machine.

Protegrity’s Data Security Platform offers a collaborative set of data protection solutions that can be combined in complex, heterogeneous environments to protect sensitive data from the point of creation to the point of archive or purging. During Oracle lab testing, Protegrity Database Protector for Oracle Exadata achieved a sevenfold performance gain, and fifteen fold increase in data warehouse queries executed and concurrent user connections over single high-end Linux servers and baseline Unix servers running AIX or Oracle Solaris – all while securing data using encryption and tokenization.1

Oracle Exadata is part of the Oracle Exastack Optimized program, which allows partners, such as Protegrity, to leverage OPN enablement resources and dedicated lab environments to help develop, test and tune their applications on Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine and Oracle SuperCluster engineered systems. The Oracle Exadata Database Machine delivers extreme performance and is the ideal database platform for OLTP applications, data warehouses, as well as the varied and unpredictable workloads of cloud computing. It is a complete package of servers, storage, networking, and software that is massively scalable, secure and redundant.

By achieving Oracle Exadata Optimized status, Oracle recognizes Protegrity for developing, testing and tuning Protegrity Database Protector for Oracle Exadata on Oracle Exadata Database Machine. This accomplishment is a testament to Protegrity’s ability to deliver the extreme performance and reliability customers require.

“The Protegrity Database Protector for Oracle Exadata is a strong solution for our mutual customers,” said Protegrity CEO Suni Munshani. “Not only does our platform help improve ROI by offering increased performance when executing heavy workloads, but it also may reduce total cost of ownership by allowing more simultaneous user connections and concurrency via the application tier which results in greater database utilization.”

"Oracle Exastack Optimized recognizes partners who have optimized their solutions on a complete, integrated and cloud-ready infrastructure in order to help them accelerate innovation, unlock new features and functionality, and deliver superior value to users," said David Hicks, Vice President, Worldwide ISV, OEM and Java Business Development, Oracle. "By achieving Oracle Exadata Optimized status, Protegrity has demonstrated its Protegrity Database Protector for Oracle Exadata is tested and tuned to work with Oracle Exadata Database Machine to help deliver optimum performance, scalability, and reliability to their customers."
