US retail and government firms select Camouflage to provide enhanced data security for application test and development purposes.
St. John's, NL (PRWEB) May 18, 2015
Camouflage Software Inc., an industry recognized leading expert and pioneer in the field of sensitive data management, security, and data masking is pleased to announce that two new clients within the retail and government sectors have recently engaged with the company and have implemented Camouflage’s Data Discovery and Data Masking solutions.
The first, a leading grocery retailer with 600+ stores and upwards of 60,000 employees operating throughout the southern United States, has recently implemented Camouflage’s market-leading solutions and expert support to protect highly sensitive customer and employee data.
Prior to engaging Camouflage, this retailer was seeking a means to better protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) being used in application test and development environments. It needed to perform application upgrades and database migration without exposing sensitive employee data, including payroll and benefits administration as well as sensitive customer and pharmacy data. In doing so, employees required usable and realistic data but not necessarily “real” data.
As such, a highly robust and scalable solution was required that would quickly search and discover sensitive data as well as intelligently and efficiently mask the necessary information. After a thorough evaluation, the retailer chose Camouflage as the clear winner in being able to meet all organizational requirements and industry standards.
Also joining the Camouflage team is a government agency within in the state of Colorado. Prior to engaging Camouflage, the company was in need of a more effective means to protect sensitive PII being used in application test and development environments. It needed a Data Discovery and Data Masking solution to mitigate risk and exposure of sensitive data. Ultimately, Camouflage was chosen as the leading vendor, with solutions that could optimize the company’s data analysis and protection needs.
Kevin Duggan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Camouflage says, “The need for masked data in application test and development environments is a key challenge that many of our clients have been experiencing, and have therefore been seeking Camouflage’s market leading expertise in. Organizations are always upgrading and testing new applications and they need a solution that can not only transform the data so it is anonymized, but the transformed data needs to remain realistic and useable. With Camouflage, these clients are provided a new level of expertise and data protection as it relates to customer, employee, and their own confidential corporate information, while also complying with mandatory government legislation for their employees and customers.”
Camouflage Software is recognized by Gartner and Bloor Research as a leading expert and pioneer in the field of sensitive data management, security, and data masking.

Camouflage’s world-class solutions offer identification, classification, and anonymization of sensitive information in both test and production environments. This enhanced level of security allows organizations to comply with increasing legislative and industry requirements surrounding data management, while combatting the increasing threat of cyber-attacks and data breaches.
