CyberRes partners with Google Cloud in lead up to BigQuery release

CyberRes, a Micro Focus line of business, has announced a partnership with Google Cloud to support the upcoming release of BigQuery remote functions.

The partnership will see CyberRes' end-to-end enterprise data protection solution,Voltage SecureData, integrate with Google's BigQuery data warehouse to accelerate and expand organisations' data science initiatives and help companies comply with ever-evolving privacy regulations.

The integration will enable CyberRes Voltage customers to persistently protect data in use, in motion, and at rest in Google BigQuery. The support for remote functions also enables Google Cloud's BigQuery customers to take advantage of Voltage's privacy-enabling technologies, the company states.

Mutual customers can use Voltage's format-preserving encryption, hashing, and tokenisation services within BigQuery in conjunction with Google BigQuery's native security to address strict privacy compliance controls.

Voltage's cloud-agnostic and consistent data protection allows all customers to safely use regulated data for analytics across hybrid clouds.

Tony de la Bree, vice president of product management, CyberRes, says, “The availability of remote functions from BigQuery is an exciting and critical evolution of Google Cloud's platform for CyberRes customers.

"The integration with Voltage SecureData means BigQuery will allow customers to utilise and support the Voltage data-centric protection approach for secure analytics, enabling enterprises to accelerate and expand their data science initiatives with privacy by default.

BigQuery, Google Cloud's highly scalable multi-cloud data warehouse, is designed for business agility and allows customers to gain insights with real-time and predictive analytics, access data, and securely share insights with ease.

This new partnership adds to Voltage SecureData's deep capabilities in securing analytics across data warehouses, databases and data lakes, and enables customers to shift workloads to BigQuery, the company states.

Ritika Suri, director, technology partnerships, Google Cloud, says, “Emerging threats and evolving technology needs are at the forefront of challenges in cyber security.

"By making its Voltage SecureData solution available to Google Cloud customers from within their BigQuery data warehouse, CyberRes is enabling customers with the technologies needed to protect their sensitive data while addressing and adhering to current data privacy regulations.

The CyberRes Voltage portfolio is designed to help secure organisations with continuous data discovery, insight, and protection to reduce risk and enable privacy by design. Organisations can work with high-value, sensitive customer data in its protected state to derive business intelligence without the risk of data exposure in Google BigQuery.

The data protection technologies in Voltage SecureData provide flexible implementation and data-centric protection for a virtually unlimited number of structured data types in any language, and in any region, with proven performance, reliability, and scalability.
