Financial Services Provider Leveraging Database Activity Monitoring Solution to Prevent Data Breaches and Improve Audit Processes
SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 25, 2010 - Sentrigo, Inc., the innovator in database security software, today announced that its Hedgehog Enterprise software solution has been selected by Red Link, a leading financial services organization in Argentina, to secure a wide range of highly-sensitive customer data including the personal information of account holders – credit history, account numbers and authentication data – as well as information associated with credit cards such as transaction records, merchant information and billing details. Activesec, Sentrigo’s channel partner in Latin America, managed the implementation at Red Link to ensure the entire integration process was quick and seamless.
Like many organizations in the banking and financial services industry, Red Link considers maintaining its security posture as a top priority. As fraud and identity theft move to the forefront of ongoing issues plaguing consumers, protection of personal data becomes a critical process in an organization’s security strategy. By implementing Sentrigo’s comprehensive database security software, Red Link can provide its customers and partners with the assurance that their sensitive data is protected from unauthorized access and destructive breaches.
“In the larger breaches that we’ve seen in our industry, one common theme continues to reappear – the exposure of private and sensitive data, both unintentionally or through malicious intent of external hackers or insiders,” said Jorge A. O’Higgins, IT Security and Fraud Prevention Manager from Red Link. “We looked at other database security solutions, and ultimately selected Sentrigo Hedgehog Enterprise because of its real-time monitoring and overall best-in-breed data protection functionality. Sentrigo has allowed us to heighten our security posture and meet regulatory guidelines without impacting the performance or reliability of our systems. The IT team at Red Link has many high priority projects requiring our time and resources, so the ease and speed of the Sentrigo software implementation process was extremely beneficial for us.”
Sentrigo’s software-only architecture was seamlessly deployed at Red Link and did not require changes to the existing software, systems, or network. While Red Link’s primary goal when selecting Sentrigo Hedgehog Enterprise was to secure data and prevent potential breaches, the financial institution has also leveraged the software to improve its audit process. By providing the Red Link database and security teams with greater visibility and control over sensitive data, Hedgehog Enterprise has armed the Red Link staff with the tools needed to quickly and easily respond to requests from auditors.
“More than ever, financial institutions are finding themselves at risk of both insider and outsider threats,” said Nathan Shuchami, CEO of Sentrigo. “By using our scalable database activity monitoring and intrusion prevention solution, organizations can implement a reliable, cost-effective solution that provides them with a high-level of data security to mitigate the risk of a serious breach.”
