Data Security Solutions for Your Corporation

PROACTIVE DATA GOVERNANCE

Go beyond passive monitoring of your data via ASP's solutions that allow customers to take action on their data through active data archiving and purging of live and retired applications, dynamic or persistent masking of data in production and non-prod environments and active auditing to ensure compliance with corporate and government mandates like GDPR.

FEATURED SOLUTIONS

PERFORMANCE ARCHIVE

'Right size' your production transactional database via live archiving of transactional data to maintain database performance and reduce Tier I storage costs.

APP RETIREMENT ARCHIVE

Dramatically reduce ongoing resource, license, and data center costs by safely decommissioning legacy applications while retaining the data required to be compliant with existing corporate data retention policies.

RIM PURGE

Ensure your live applications only keep the data required by corporate data retention policies and reap the benefits of better performance, major storage savings, and reduced exposure to data breaches. Critical for complying with Right To Be Forgotten and Data Minimization GDPR mandates.

DATA RETIREMENT

Fully 'retire' a complete set of aged data (transactional and reference) from your live applications and house it separately for corporate data retention compliance as the data's value shifts from supporting business operations to supporting litigation/audit cases.

PERSONAL DATA ASSESSMENT AND IDENTIFICATION

Quickly identify and catalog critical personal data like PCI, PHI, and PII data that span multiple applications and repositories within your company - including Dev/Test environments!

APPLICATION ECOSYSTEM DATA SECURITY

ASP offers solutions to protect your personal data from unauthorized access regardless if it resides in production or a dev/test environment. Implement role and location-based data masking, pseudonymization, and/or encryption to ensure your most critical asset is protected anytime, anywhere.

GDPR READINESS AND COMPLIANCE

ASP provides customers a data-centric, practical approach for compliance across the enterprise.

GDPR IS AROUND THE CORNER - ARE YOU READY???

On May 25, 2018, the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect, offering far tougher standards for protecting EU citizen's personal information. If your company stores EU citizen data, you're affected, even if your company is based outside of the EU. The fines for noncompliance are far greater as well, resulting in fines of up to 4% of the company's total revenue. However, ASP can provide customers a direct path to compliance via a 360 degree, data-centric, and automated approach resulting in data that is secured, trusted, and compliant.

ASP PATH TO GDPR COMPLIANCE

STEP ONE: DEFINING AND CATALOGING PERSONAL DATA

The first step on this journey is defining what is personal data within your company and catalog it in a centralized repository. GDPR only provides guidance on what constitutes personal data but doesn't explicitly state it. Each company must review all types of personal data to see what is relevant to their company and industry.

STEP THREE: ESTABLISH AN ACTIONABLE DATA GOVERNANCE PROGRAM

It simply isn't good enough to just govern your data passively, you need to ensure the policies established to properly govern your company's personal data can be actively implemented and monitored. ASP's Data Governance Director provides a platform to automatically drive and monitor archive, purge, user access, and security projects to put these policies in action across an entire application ecosystem.

STEP TWO: IDENTIFY AND ASSESS

Now that the cataloged personal data elements are in hand, the next step is to quickly identify where these data elements reside within the company, at what volume, and assess the exposure of this data to internal and external users and systems. ASP leverages best of breed tools like Informatica's Secure@Source and processes to quickly assess where this regulated data exists - regardless if it is in production or non-production environments or if it is structured or unstructured data - and if it is unsecured and exposed.

STEP FOUR: TAKE ACTION - DATA CONTROL AND PURGE

Explosive data growth will no longer be allowed under GDPR. Nor will it be allowable to have users with excessive access to data. ASP provides solutions to address both via providing scalable solutions to purge data on demand by an EU data subject request across entire application ecosystems or control data access of personal data by role or location. Personal data can be further protected via persistent and dynamic data masking across prod and
non-prod environments.

APPLICATION RATIONALIZATION

Confidently rationalize your applications efficiently after a major merger/acquisition, in preparation for a large-scale enterprise re-architecture or business process reengineering initiative. ASP provides the best practices toolset and methodology to quickly categorize each application to determine not only where its data lands in the information lifecycle but which corresponding data governance approach is most appropriate.

KEY BENEFITS FROM APPLICATION RATIONALIZATION

Simplify technology standards and therefore simplify technology adherence - 

Diverse applications with diverse technology platforms only lead to increased costs and lack of a unified standard. Rationalizing your existing and future applications to a common set of technology standards will go a long way in addressing this situation.

Eliminate 'desupport' situations -

One of the key benefits from app rationalization is the elimination of desupport situations. App rationalization will quickly identify the risk exposure of older applications and their vendors and execute a plan to eliminate those applications where any outage may lead to catastrophic data loss.

Eliminate redundancy -

Utilizing ASP's toolset and methodologies allows companies to easily identify applications that perform similar or identical functions in different areas of the organization.

Redirect future investments that support growth of the future, not the past -

App rationalization analysis will certainly identify huge opportunities for cost savings and therefore opportunities to redirect those savings toward investments that provide future strategic value to the business.

Eliminate unnecessary or wasted investments -

ASP's app rationalization process evaluates all applications through a lens that focuses on the application's strategic value against current and future organization's objectives. Why continue to invest in an application that is divergent from these objectives?

Dramatically reduce training and support requirements -

Each application will require some level of vendor-specific support from both your staff as well as the vendor's. This support costs money and can be greatly reduced when BOTH the number of applications and their vendors are reduced.

FEATURED SOLUTIONS

ONE-CLICK SAAS

Implement ASP's best practice toolset that not only leverages existing, storage-based virtual cloning technologies but provides the 'one-click' environment refresh solution for both the app/db tier of an application. This SaaS solution allows even Tier I operations the power to execute these once DBA-specific tasks. This solution also dramatically reduces refresh times from days to hours - even for very large databases of 25TB or more.

TEST DATA MANAGEMENT

Implement ASP's best practices tool set that provides best of breed implementation and operational execution of test data management tools like Informatica's TDM. This allows dev/test environment users only the data needed to effectively test a new product. ASP's solution also includes data security to implement either data masking and/or encryption to further protect your company's sensitive data from internal/external breaches.
