“We’re replacing the patchwork of manual systems and freestanding tools. Not only we are more resilient and able to recover data quickly, Actifio is providing us greater data security as well.”
James Buzek – VP of Information Assurance and Infrastructure Services
ACTIFIO FOR SECURITY OPERATIONS & RISK
Data Virtualization Enabling Security
Minimize threats to mission critical data with instant access to immutable pure data copies.
Mitigating risks and resolving data security problems demands a new, holistic approach to managing enterprise data.
Data virtualization enables data capture directly from production applications, manage a single “golden master” of that data in a secure environment, and use virtual copies to maintain both accessibility and control.
It limits the proliferation and availability of physical data copies, reducing the risk “surface area”, decreasing the number of targets available to those with malicious intent.
“We identified Actifio as our best data backup and recovery solution through a competitive process. Not only did Actifio closely match our primary criteria, but it also provides creative support for application development using application-aware data mounts. That is very powerful for us; a great benefit.”
Gabriel Kimanzi – IT RISK & SECURITY OFFICER
Keeping enterprise data safe and accessible is a complex balancing act made all the more difficult by the geometric growth rate of production data.
When coupled with conventional data protection programs, the result is an unintended and uncontrolled proliferation of copies.
Data is created or copied for each individual use case from backup and disaster recovery, to analytics and compliance.
This often results in rogue copies of sensitive data that companies find hard to track, let alone protect.
Each added physical copy increases the surface area of attack with additional opportunities for the wrong people to access it.
Businesses can’t afford disruptions from downtime, and a data breach can slow or even stop production.
It can threaten long-term financial health, customer dissatisfaction, and lasting brand damage.
Essential data control for any enterprise begins with knowing where the data is, how many copies exist, and who has access.
At the same time, enterprises require Safe and immediate data availability at the right place and time. So, necessary safeguards must ensure data integrity while achieving a measurable return on data investments.

HOW Actifio HELPS
Actifio reduces complexity while increasing critical data security, resilience, and recovery capabilities through simplified security testing.
Actifio data virtualization eliminates redundant infrastructure, process, and expense. Audit logs and access controls enable audit capabilities for all administrator and user actions to ensure accountability.
IT administrators or application owners can set role-based data access controls (RBAC). Masking is available for Development and Test environments.
And two-factor control governs authorized user data access, including permissions for an individual or divided by a two-person-rule for any access to sensitive data.
Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and penetration and vulnerability testing can be used to conduct compliance scanning without risk of disruption to production operations.
Immutable references create a permanent copy for compliance and investigatory purposes or to detect data tampering.
