Axis Technology Software and Rackspace Hosting Partner to Provide Secure Cloud Services

Axis Technology Software, LLC, the leading provider of enterprise data masking solutions, and Rackspace® Hosting (NYSE: RAX), the open cloud company, today announced an alliance that enables users deploy a test environment in Rackspace cloud within their data center of choice — be it their own data center, a colo facility, or in one of Rackspace’s global data centers using DMsuite and OpenStack-powered Rackspace.

With enterprises turning to the cloud at a rapidly increasing rate, data security stakes in cloud-based and virtualized environments are high. With a joint Rackspace / Axis offering, customers are guaranteed a top productivity environment with ironclad data protection. In particular, the risk of sensitive data exposure is totally eliminated, and all compliance regulations are met, allowing businesses to take advantage of all that the cloud has to offer while keeping data entirely out of harm’s way.

“Cloud computing is constantly evolving, and businesses are embracing the cloud at an even faster rate,” said Mike Logan, President of Axis Technology Software, LLC. “Much like just about every other technology innovation, risks always emerge- especially when it comes to security. In the last year alone we have seen headline after headline that discussed security breaches in the cloud, or other disasters that put private information in jeopardy. By partnering with Rackspace, customers do not need to worry about whether or not their data will fall victim to any vulnerabilities related to doing business in the cloud."

DMsuite™ secures development, quality assurance, and third-party testing environments by removing confidential data and replacing it with realistic, fictitious data. Because the masking transformation is executed in memory, production data is not accessible within DMsuite™ or anywhere in the target environment, making DMsuite™ the most secure and effective data masking offering on the market today. It maintains referential integrity across business lines and different platforms such as Oracle, MSSQL, Cache, Hadoop, and file formats that include VSAM, Excel, delimited, and XML. DMsuite™ can be used straight out of the box, offering self-service provisioning functionality. DMsuite™ is Web-based and its central point of control enables easy operation, administration, logging, and auditing.
