Ensuring the ongoing protection of personally identifiable information is mandatory in today's business, enabling you to guard against data breaches and comply with regulation such as the GDPR, HIPAA and SOX.

Taking a privacy-first approach that involves greater visibility over sensitive data, and how it changes and moves through your SQL Server estate, means you can better control and protect it.

But protecting data can be difficult.

With data often spread across a growing number of different environments, it's hard to know what to restrict and where it's located. This risks non-compliance, and leaves organizations open to data breaches, customer backlash, and hefty fines.

Redgate helps you to protect your business by giving you a simple, scalable, and repeatable process for managing sensitive data as it moves through your SQL Server estate.

You get to focus on optimizing the productivity and performance of your IT organization, safe in the knowledge that data that must remain private, does.

"Less than 50% of organizations impacted by the GDPR will be compliant when it takes effect on May 25, 2018"


The data privacy and protection process

Safeguarding business-critical data requires a consistent and repeatable process designed with privacy in mind up front.

From building up a picture of the data you currently hold in your SQL Server estate to protecting sensitive information as it enters and moves around your environments, Redgate is with you every step of the way.


Save time building up an inventory of your SQL Server estate, from production servers to copies for development and test.

You get insight into where your databases live, what data they contain, and who has access, giving you the foundation to apply the right levels of security to data as it moves around your organization.


Remove the guesswork in understanding which tables or columns contain sensitive data for compliance.

Give your data context by assigning descriptive labels that are retained as it moves through environments.

Your team gets greater awareness of what's important, so they can become more security conscious, helping to protect your business.


Safeguard against data breaches and unauthorized access by masking and encrypting sensitive data.

Automatically apply masking rules as you provision new databases, refresh development and test environments with production data, and create backups. You get a simple, repeatable process that ensures proper security controls are in place to help you stay compliant with regulations.


Maintain compliance through ongoing tracking and management of your data protection policy.

Monitoring your databases as they move through environments helps to enforce data privacy rules and detect activity that risks unauthorized access to sensitive information. You gain the information needed to take action before it impacts your business.
