Informatica launches solution for GDPR data governance and compliance
Informatica says its Data Governance & Compliance Solution for GDPR is “the industry’s first intelligent, integrated solution designed to engage business, IT and security on their journey to GDPR”…
Informatica, the enterprise cloud data management leader accelerating data-driven digital transformation, has announced Informatica Data Governance & Compliance for GDPR, the industry’s first governance solution designed specifically to support customers on their journey to GDPR compliance.
In May 2018, the European Union’s GDPR becomes effective, enhancing protection of personal data. This regulation could have significant impact for organisations and how they manage data pertaining to customers, consumers, partners, staff and other ‘data subjects’ with some potentially very large penalties for violations. Informatica Data Governance & Compliance is currently the only solution available that engages the business, IT and data security teams in governing data of all types – cloud, on-premises, and big data anywhere – across the entire enterprise to help customers with GDPR compliance efforts.
The new solution is delivered as part of Informatica’s Intelligent Data Platform, a meta data and artificial intelligence-driven platform that spans on-premises, cloud and big data. It ensures data is trusted, secure, governed, accessible, timely, relevant and actionable, enabling the companies across the word to deliver data-driven digital transformation outcomes.
Explaining more about GDPR, Amit Walia, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer of Informatica, said:
“GDPR poses many challenges, but it also has the potential to result in opportunities around the use of data in an organisation.
“Organisations must take a holistic and automated approach to governance and compliance to help maximise the potential opportunity. To help enterprises with GDPR compliance, Informatica has brought together the most comprehensive governance and compliance package available, empowering all constituents from non-technical business users to IT to effectively collaborate and govern data, across the enterprise.”
Informatica Data Governance & Compliance for GDPR is comprised of an integrated set of innovative, intelligent products that the company says are all recognised leaders in their respective spaces. To implement a comprehensive GDPR program, companies need to discover, assess and govern their in-scope data.
In addition, Informatica offers other products that can assist in data compliance issues: data masking to prevent unauthorised access to automatically remove or hide data subject information; a master data management solution to provide the foundation for a 360 view of personal data and all the associated consents and a central point to enact subject rights; a data quality solution to ensure relevant, timely and trustworthy data; a data archive solution to purge data if a data subject wants personal information removed.
The Informatica Intelligent Data Platform, upon which these products are built, uses the CLAIRE Engine for meta data-driven artificial intelligence to provide automation and personalised recommendations that boost user productivity, accelerate the implementation of data governance programs, and drive ongoing operational efficiency to comply with complex and dynamic regulatory requirements.
