Securing and Sharing Business Data – Compromise no more!

Today, extended enterprises operate across multiple geographies where companies share high volumes of data within and beyond organizational boundaries. Such data sharing is needed for business application development, testing, training, statistical analysis, business process outsourcing, and market research. However, it also exposes organizations to several dangers. These include theft of sensitive client data resulting in penalties, lawsuits, loss of customer confidence, negative brand image, and erosion in share price. Ultimately, these risks mean higher costs and revenue loss.

Infosys - Enterprise Data Protection Solutions

Global regulatory norms such as HIPAA, PIPEDA, PCI DSS, GLBA, ITAR, SOX, and JSOX make it imperative for enterprises to protect confidential, sensitive, private, and personally identifiable information. Constrained by these regulations and concerned about data security risks, many companies are struggling to find secure ways for profitable outsourcing/off-shoring.

Infosys Enterprise Data Privacy Suite secures your data and your business

Enterprises require a strategy where they can protect confidential client data while sharing it with internal/external entities for business purposes. Such a strategy involves using holistic data masking tools that ‘de-identify’ sensitive data and replace it with realistic but false data. In doing so, data stays secure and is still usable by application development, business intelligence and BPO teams.

Case studies


Use cases for iEDPS

Data protection and off-shoring: Businesses are responsible for the security and control of any personal data within their possession. However, most businesses overlook the importance of data protection from a legal and risk management standpoint when devising their outsourcing strategy. This raises serious data breach concerns during offshoring. By anonymizing data, iEDPS eliminates data sensitivity, thereby mitigating the risk of data leaks.

Compliance with data privacy regulations: Today, industries and corporations are obliged to comply with various data privacy regulations that could be sectoral or regional in nature. iEDPS can be configured to comply with multiple regulations simultaneously.

Evaluate readiness for GDPR: Faced with the deadline of October 2018 to implement GDPR, businesses within the EU that capture and process customer data need to place the necessary controls on sensitive data within their data stores. iEDPS can help these organizations identify where sensitive data resides in the organization while providing an assessment of their readiness for GDPR.
