Grid-Tools positioned in the “Challengers” Quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Masking Technology Thursday 18 December 2014 PDF Print Grid-Tools Limited, the leading vendor of test data management, test data generation and data masking software and solutions has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the ‘Challengers’ Quadrant of the December 10, 2014 ‘Magic Quadrant for Data Masking Technology’, a report authored by Joseph Feiman and Brian Lowans. “We believe our data masking solutions have proved their ability to adapt to complex projects that require high scalability,” said Huw Price, Managing Director of Grid-Tools. Grid-Tools offers a stand-alone data masking tool GT Fast Data Masker and also the option to generate synthetic data through its award-winning Datamaker™ Test Data Management suite. This allows testing and development teams to quickly provision referentially intact data which is not only secure but enriched so that functionality can be rigorously tested. With clients in North and Latin America as well as Europe, the Middle East and Asia, the company has assisted clients radically improve how test data is provisioned, a vital step in delivering valuable software earlier. “Our approach is different as we get under the skin of what a client needs,” Huw Price continues, “if there is a requirement to simply mask data, our solution can quickly identify all of the potentially sensitive data across multiple systems and meet data privacy requirements and short-term challenges. “But our solutions can support client ambitions too, for example, with agile development projects, we can generate smaller, richer, more sophisticated sets of test data that can be distributed to multiple teams at once, in parallel.” For further information, contact Grid-Tools at www.grid-tools.com, or call 01865 884600 Disclaimer: Gartner does not endorse any vendor, product or service depicted in its research publications, and does not advise technology users to select only those vendors with the highest ratings or other designation.
