Data Protection: The Value of MaskingMike Logan of Delphix on New Approaches to Data Security in Finance
Data today is money - especially in financial services, where account data is every hacker's target. How, then, can institutions mask that data and protect it when it's in non-production environments? Mike Logan of Delphix offers new insights.
"Data has real value," says Logan, VP of Masking at Delphix. "The data breaches we hear about all the time, they're happening because there's a lot of value in getting that data."
Recognizing the reputational and regulatory imperatives to protect data, financial institutions are looking for new, holistic solutions, Logan says.
"How do they solve this problem across all their different access points they have with their customers, their partners, their vendors," he says. "They have to protect the data no matter where it's going."
In an interview about data protection, Logan discusses:
- Top data protection concerns for financial institutions;
- How data masking solutions have evolved;
- What distinguishes Delphix in the marketplace.
A senior leader with 30 years of experience, Logan is the Vice President of Masking at Delphix. His focus is to make Delphix a leader in the secure data virtualization market. He brings together a unique combination of management, consulting and technology depth and design thinking to transform a business through the use of next generation data solutions.
Prior to joining Delphix, he was President and co-founder of Axis Technology, LLC and was responsible for developing its proprietary data masking product DMsuite, which was subsequently acquired by Delphix. Before founding Axis, he was a senior technical leader at Oracle and Digital Equipment Corp, where he pioneered the delivery of data warehouses using parallel database technology for leading edge clients.
