Teradata Takes On Data Security

Partnership highlights much needed industry effort.
Ventana QuickTake™

Teradata, a provider of data warehousing technology, and Protegrity, which sells data security management technology, have announced a close partnership in which Teradata will resell the Protegrity Defiance data protection system (DPS). This is the first partnership between a data warehouse technology supplier and a pure-play data security vendor. The announcement is important because it illustrates that vendors may be reacting to a growing need for IT organizations to manage not only user security but information security. As information assets become increasingly crucial within businesses, the protection provided for those assets should grow equivalently. Sound data governance practices are a key part of any enterprise information management program. To assure robust data governance, Ventana Research believes that organizations must adopt trust and security policies, along with technologies such as these to implement them.
