Delphix launches new compliance service integrated with Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform

Using Delphix through the Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform makes it easy for all stakeholders to deliver compliant data on demand.

The exponential growth in the global volume of data has created new challenges for companies seeking to learn actionable insights. Storing data in a multitude of formats has concentrated it in silos. At the same time, international data privacy regulations hold companies accountable for enforcing data security standards, and provide for heavy fines and penalties for non-compliance. To fully realize the strategic value of data, it must be mobile, dynamic, secure and compliant. It is within this framework that Delphix is ​​partnering with Microsoft to help their joint customers accelerate the creation of value, in terms of both compliance and security, from their data capital on Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform.

The compliance edge that Delphix brings to Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform

To be fully exploited, business data must be handled in the same format. ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) pipelines must therefore be adapted to each archiving system, while being able to scale up to manage the gigantic data sets of companies. Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform solutions for data pipelines, such as Azure Synapse Pipelines and Azure Data Factory, simplify these tasks by providing zero-coding ETL and enterprise-grade connectivity within rich visual experiences.

When sensitive data is extracted from these archiving systems, it must nevertheless be brought into compliance without impacting the economic value of this data set. This process can be slow and complex; it often requires the intervention of a professional with specialized knowledge, and companies generally need time to ensure that their data complies with a host of privacy regulations for which they are liable. Their data dissemination processes risk being slowed down, creating a bottleneck.

Delphix solves these challenges with a fast, automated, API-driven way to move secure data to where it’s needed in the business. Specifically, Delphix identifies sensitive information across the enterprise and automates data masking where it resides.

This masking protects confidential data by irreversibly replacing their original real values ​​with fictitious, but realistic equivalents, preserving the integrity of the repository. Delphix also ensures consistent masking of this data, all sources combined. Data masking not only excludes the risk of personal data exposure: it also ensures compliance with almost all data privacy regulations without impacting the economic value of the data.

Interoperability of Delphix and Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform solutions

Used together, Delphix and Intelligent Data Platform combine powerful offerings focused on compliance and automation to simplify the on-demand deployment of compliant data. Microsoft Azure ETL solutions solve connectivity challenges for enterprise-scale data integration, while Delphix fills ETL compliance gaps. By facilitating the circulation of data in the company, while ensuring their conformity in the blink of an eye, these products avoid their compartmentalization.

Specifically, Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform and Azure Data Factory (ADF) customers will be able to use Delphix to perform data profiling and create masked copies of it via ADF connectors. Delphix will also enable end users to automatically transfer compliant data from sources such as SAP, Salesforce and Oracle EBS to high value service layers such as Microsoft Synapse.

This new service allows:

Secure activation of Azure Data Services for certain industry solutions;

- The resolution of complex regulatory compliance issues concerning data;

- “Shift left” acceleration (corresponding to a security turn to the left) as part of a “DevSecOps” approach;

- Reduced training time for AI/ML algorithms thanks to the compliance of analytics tools.
