Securing Data Is a Four Letter Word

It seems that every morning we wake up to news of yet another high profile data leak. Sensitive or business critical information has been improperly accessed, released to the public, or stolen by identity thieves.

Keeping sensitive data secure often seems like mission impossible. Ideally, it would be locked down, but the reason it’s in a database is because many people and applications need access to it. Frankly, it’s enough to keep anybody awake at night.

Data centric security solutions are helping to change this. Data masking, tokenization and encryption are all alternatives but these can impact performance and/or the application itself. Next generation data access control, however, which filters information, has minimal performance impact and can be deployed without altering applications.

Next generation data access control, utilzes centrally maintained policies to ensure only authorized users gain access to information, under the right conditions, while blocking unauthorized access.

The Axiomatics Data Access Filter solution, ADAF MD, effectively filters information in databases. ADAF MD ensures that access to information is governed by corporate policies and governmental regulations – rather than left to the individual preferences of the application programmer or database administrator. The result: secure data and effective compliance.

This webinar covers:

  • How data filtering compares with encryption, tokenization, and data masking
  • How XACML is applied to database content
  • How ADAF can be implemented in an organization
  • How our customers are using ADAF
  • How ADAF protectects your most sensitive data

Taking an identity-centric approach to a modern security architecture
Federal agencies invest heavily in protecting data from external threat actors, but the insider threat problem requires a new approach to access control. While protecting data is paramount, that requirement must be balanced with the need to share certain information across a variety of use case scenarios within and across agencies/departments.
