BankAtlantic Uses Data Masking to Protect Sensitive Information

Software replaces private date with "fictitional, usable" data.

BankAtlantic has implemented DMsuite data masking software from Axis Technology to protect sensitive information.

"BankAtlantic's security practices already meet all regulatory requirements with regard to sensitive information," said Brian Smith, Corporate Information Security Officer, in a statement. "However, as the security of sensitive data evolves, proactively employing the right technologies to protect our customers is a strategic initiative in which the bank is continuously investing."

"We narrowed our search down to three providers, but the two factors that made DMsuite the obvious choice for us were: 1) the intuitive data discovery tool and 2) the Axis staff," said Sean Milligan, Strategic IS Project Coordinator of BankAtlantic. "Analysis and discovery of our data was a task we thought would be the most challenging, but thanks to the Axis team and the unique capabilities of DMsuite we had everything running smoothly in about four weeks."

DMsuite removes confidential data and replaces it with usable, fictitious data. It protects Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, and DB2 environments, as well as file formats including VSAM, delimited, XML, XLS and flat files.
