BigID and OpenLegacy Partner to Extend Sensitive Data Management to Core Mainframe and Midrange Systems

Posted by Debra Mendes on June 09, 2020

New York (PRweb) June 9, 2020
BigID, the leading data discovery and intelligence platform for privacy, protection, and perspective, today introduced first-of-its-kind discovery and security features for managing sensitive crown jewels across core mainframe systems powered by OpenLegacy.

OpenLegacy’s automated API creation provides BigID with pre-built integration to core environments, ensuring no sensitive data is left behind in customers’ quest for regulatory compliance and data protection.

The seamless bundling of OpenLegacy’s APIs with BigID’s platform addresses core challenges faced by all regulated industries that deal with sensitive data - including financial services, insurance companies, and more. Organizations of all types need to be able to discover, identify, and protect sensitive data - in legacy environments stored in mainframes all the way up to the cloud.

A large financial services company, for example, worked with OpenLegacy and BigID to surface sensitive and personal data from Mainframe VSAM systems. The customer singled out OpenLegacy as the only viable solution due to its ability to access VSAM data directly, and the automatic code-generation approach ensured a timely integration of their large-scale legacy environment.

BigID’s discovery-in-depth enabled the customer to automatically discover, classify, and manage highly regulated industry data, building a foundation for them to gain full visibility on their most sensitive data - and they’re now able to leverage BigID for sustainable privacy and protection initiatives within their organization like fulfilling data subject access requests

“BigID is seeing a growing and time-sensitive need for customers to adopt regulatory compliance laws and regulations,” explained William Murphy, vice president of technology alliances. “This requires complete access to all corners of the enterprise data, including the vast amount of mainframe data. By embedding OpenLegacy’s industry-leading prebuilt APIs, we’re able to build upon the strength of our platform to provide a complete experience to our customers.”

“Data privacy and compliance are paramount for any organization and BigID has emerged as a trusted leader in this space. OpenLegacy’s platform is a natural fit for BigID’s customers as they seek to maximize the value of their data trapped in mainframes and other core legacy systems,” said Bo Luongo, global senior vice president of alliances and business development. “Our platform and code-generation approach seamlessly integrates with BigID’s data intelligence platform and dramatically accelerates time-to-business value for BigID’s customers with data stored in core mainframe and midrange systems. OpenLegacy is excited to partner with BigID to provide universal access to sensitive data.”
