MENTIS Listed in Gartner Market Guide for Data Masking

One of four vendors listed that provide discovery, static and dynamic data masking and unstructured data masking, four out of five DDM deployment tiers

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, March 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — MENTIS Software (www.MENTISoftware.com), the pioneer in data masking and enterprise data security products, today announced its inclusion in Gartner’s most recent Market Guide for Data Masking publication. [1]

The firm’s February 2017 report recommends to “Mitigate data risk and enable your organization’s digital business transformation by adopting data masking and complementary technologies such as format-preserving encryption and tokenization as a key strategy.”

The threat and compliance landscape has continued to evolve, and 2016’s breaches, combined with the continued growth of data within organizations, are fueling demand for both static and dynamic data masking solutions.

Gartner’s Market Guide for Data Masking lists representative data masking vendors and focuses the report on the critical elements of the data masking lifecycle, which include static data masking, dynamic data masking (repository, proxy, API, and application deployment), data redaction for unstructured and semi-structured data, and data and relationship discovery.

“Out of 19 representative vendors in the report, MENTIS was one of four that support four out of five DDM deployment tiers. These capabilities, combined with our other integrated products such as database firewall and sensitive data retirement solutions, makes MENTIS a uniquely comprehensive solution for the entire sensitive data lifecycle,” stated Rajesh Parthasarathy, CEO of MENTIS.

Last year, MENTIS announced the company’s most significant version release to date, MENTIS 8, which extends its platform to enable security in critical data stores such as unstructured data, data in the cloud, and data in mainframe databases. It also adds a new format-preserving encryption option to its existing masking and tokenization methods and features a new, metro-style UI with fresh and easily digestible infographic elements.

MENTIS’ sensitive data security solutions tackle sensitive data risk along the full information lifecycle. In addition to its groundbreaking discovery solution for sensitive data, the platform also includes static and dynamic data masking, continuous monitoring, and retirement solutions for meeting security and compliance mandates. MENTIS’s masking includes the industry’s ONLY conditional and location-aware dynamic data masking, along with new capabilities for tokenization and format-preserving encryption anonymization with customizable libraries.

The enterprise-ready platform uses shared sensitive data intelligence and a common database architecture across products; brings clear segregation of duties capabilities; and adds ease of implementation on a low-overhead/high-performance architecture. The solutions work across on-premise, hosted, and cloud environments; Production, Pre-Production, Non-Production, mainframe and relational databases; and file servers.

“From the moment it is created, data is at risk wherever it is stored or accessed,” said Parthasarathy. “Every organization has the dilemma of maintaining the accessibility and usefulness of data while protecting it from misuse. Our software helps companies manage and protect this vital information, without getting in the way of business.”

As companies develop a data security and compliance strategy, Parthasarathy recommends that they should stay focused on risk. Mitigating risk is central to enabling the organization’s digital business transformation. Specific recommendations include:
• Robust data masking and complementary technologies, such as format-preserving encryption and tokenization, as a key strategy.
• Effective and sustainable de-identification programs for sensitive data. The ability to assess the re-identification risks for the duration of the data masking implementation will make or break this effort. MENTIS recommends favoring vendors that offer the tools and expertise to determine re-identification risks.
• In applications where traditional DDM approaches have struggled, organizations should take advantage of innovative DDM solutions at the data virtualization or alternative application tiers.

“We are extremely proud to have MENTIS recognized in Gartner’s Market Guide for Data Masking,” said Suresh Sundaram, Executive Director of MENTIS. “We’ve been the visionary and early pioneer in this space, building solutions that can adapt to and anticipate the risks that organizations face. We’ve led the way for other companies entering the space. Gartner’s market and technology perspective from this report speaks directly to our approach – and we’re very pleased to have that independent affirmation. We’re proud that our discovery, static data masking, dynamic data masking, and other offerings continue to break new ground. In fact, our most recent release, MENTIS 8, anticipates many of the Gartner recommendations.”

MENTIS is the leading solutions provider for at-risk data, starting with iDiscover, which provides certainty about where data is and identifies the programs that put it there. Masking solutions include iMask and iScramble which, combined with iMonitor, wrap security around the data where it resides. And iRetire and iSubset can be used to further reduce exposure. This is a complete and integrated solution that pro-actively tackles risk to sensitive data at exposure points along the information lifecycle; the platform can be used in all IT environments, whether Non-Production, Pre-Production, or Production.

The World Bank, through the International Development Association, provided the equivalent of US$ 12.49 million to the project costs. Project preparation was funded by a trust fund grant in the amount of US$ 313,351.78 from the Japan Policy and Human Resources Development Fund and a Bank contribution of US $276,000.

Partners

The Bank collaborated with the Inter-American Development Bank (Multiphase Program in Support of the Plan to Eradicate Extreme Poverty (PEEP)), both on BJA program management (including its management information system, processes evaluation, and monitoring) and on the impact evaluation of the BJA program.

Moving Forward

The project was fully implemented within the government’s public-sector structure, with administrative expenditures financed by government funds. Since the midterm project review, the government has been fully responsible for financing BJA transfers to program beneficiaries, including the 107 municipalities supported under the project. The MPED program continues to operate under the Ministry of Labor, with additional support from a follow-on US$ 20 million Bank loan, the Improving Employability and Labor Income of Youth Project, approved on May 15, 2014.  

Beneficiaries

From 2009 to 2012, the period during which transfers were supported by the project, more than 130,000 Bolivian pregnant women and children below two years of age living in the 107 most vulnerable municipalities in the country benefited from the program. A total of 1,367 MPED beneficiaries completed training courses and received a medium-level technical degree accredited by the Ministry of Education in the areas of apparel construction, gastronomy, construction, metallurgy, and domiciliary gas service installations. Sixty percent of these MPED beneficiaries were women.

Exploring Behavioral Medicine: Its Application to Anxiety & Depression Disorders

ADAA logo

ADAA 2017 Annual Conference

Conference attendees will take away a much greater sense of the variety of mental health treatments for their patients who need help now and in the future.”

— ADAA President Karen Cassiday,PhD

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, March 22, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Anxiety disorders affect 40 million adults and one in eight children in the United States. They interfere with daily functioning and often lead to depression, substance use, suicide attempts, and other disorders.

Depressive disorders affect about 19 million American adults. More than 50 percent of people diagnosed with depression also have an anxiety disorder. Coexisting anxiety and depression account for the most disabling mental health disorders in the United States.

One of the most pressing issues facing mental health professionals is behavioral medicine and its application to anxiety and depression disorders – and what this means for patients and their families. Experts will discuss these and other relevant topics when they convene at the Anxiety and Depression 2017 Conference. Sponsored by the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), the conference draws more than 1,200 clinicians and researchers who specialize in anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD and other related disorders. Under the theme “On the Cutting Edge of Wellness,” they will meet April 6-April 9 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.

Distinguished therapists and psychiatrists from around the globe will focus on the challenges facing those who treat anxiety and mood disorders. These are among the best understood brain disorders, and effective evidence-based psychological and pharmacological treatments are available.

“Patients often have questions about whether they are receiving the most appropriate care for mood and anxiety disorders,” says ADAA President Karen Cassiday, PhD, a psychologist at the Anxiety Treatment Center and Rogers Behavioral Health Chicago, “even though a wide range of evidence-based mental health interventions are available.” She explains, “Scientific research leads to new and novel treatment approaches, so clinicians are faced with more and more information all the time.” Those who attend the conference will take away a much greater sense of the variety of mental health treatments for their patients who need help now — and in the future.

University of Nevada Foundation Professor of Psychology and one of the world’s most-cited clinical research psychologist and psychotherapy developer, Steven C. Hayes, PhD, will deliver the keynote address, “The Power of Turning Toward: Why Psychological Flexibility Matters for Clients and Practitioners Alike.” Dr. Hayes will describe the science of psychological flexibility as a general model of behavioral development and change and show why it matters to target these processes for change for clients and for the practitioners who serve them.
Many of the world’s most experienced and knowledgeable clinicians and researchers will also address other issues related to anxiety and depression, among them mindfulness, trauma, substance abuse, ketamine therapy, suicide, the use of mental health apps, alternative therapies, telemental health, veteran-focused therapy, new and novel pharmacotherapies, selective mutism, anxious children and culturally sensitive therapy for minority and LGBTQ communities.
For more details on the more than 170 workshops, symposia, and roundtables, visit the ADAA website: www.adaa.org/conference.
The media will have opportunities to interview experts and attend all sessions. A complete list of sessions and new-research posters, including abstracts, is available online.
