With more than 200 top people in Austria, plus 4,500 Nagarro experts worldwide, we can deliver scalable IT services and innovation at a consistently high level. This combined model of local strength and international shoring is unique in Austria.”

Axiomatics named as a Sample Vendor in the dynamic data masking category in the Gartner “Hype Cycle for Application Security, 2017” report

STOCKHOLM, Nov-29-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Axiomatics, the leader in fine-grained dynamic authorization, today announced the availability of SmartGuard™ for Big Data 1.2, the only authorization solution that fully supports Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) for Big Data. Key enhancements include support for the SQL-on-Hadoop engine Apache Impala, as well as a new user graphical user interface (GUI) and an improved Configuration API.

“SmartGuard protects data at the source with centrally managed policies that filter and mask content according to business, security and compliance objectives for SQL-on-Hadoop engines Impala, Hive and HAWQ,” said Roger Åström, vice president of product management at Axiomatics. “The use of dynamic authorization to protect Big Data stores provides efficiency, visibility and control of user access, and ensures a streamlined approach to securing Big Data, while also sharing it with authorized users.”

In addition to Impala capabilities, Axiomatics has enhanced the user experience with a redesigned user GUI, and added a new Configuration REST API, that features fine-grained access control for API users. This usability upgrade provides an easy-to-use configuration set-up, with separate tabs for authors and administrators, and organizations now can define these user views with policies.

“SmartGuard for Big Data provides our clients an improved user experience,” said Pablo Giambiagi, vice president of strategic research at Axiomatics. “Users now have much more flexibility when it comes to protecting Big Data systems against unauthorized access and exfiltration of data.”

SmartGuard for Big Data protects Big Data at the data layer, by enforcing user access based on multiple categories of attributes, and the relationship between them. Attributes could include data classification, the purpose of use, time of day, user location, the device in use, and the user’s role or group. Complex privacy requirements, such as protecting Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or helping to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation are supported with SmartGuard for Big Data. Dynamic authorization ensures not just the protection of critical assets and sensitive data, but it allows sharing the right data with authorized users. SmartGuard features the graphical policy editor from the flagship Axiomatics Policy Server, as well as the ability to dynamically mask, filter and redact sensitive data within policy settings. Axiomatics was named as a Sample Vendor in the dynamic data masking category in the Gartner “Hype Cycle for Application Security, 2017” report[1].

Marlton-based eMaint Doubles Revenue and Triples Staff since 2010

During a time when other companies are laying off and retrenching, South Jersey based eMaint Enterprises, a technology leader in delivering cloud based CMMS software and services, today announced significant revenue and staff growth over the past three years.

Revenues at eMaint grew 45 percent in 2012 over previous year, and a cumulative 167 percent since 2010. “Our customers, which run the gamut from family run farms to multinational corporations, are experiencing economic challenges just like everyone else,” said eMaint CEO Brian Samelson. “That means, more than ever, they need partners that save them time and money. eMaint has proven it can do that, and customers have rewarded us with their business and referrals.”

To support this explosive revenue growth, the company has kept pace by aggressively growing the size of staff, which has increased threefold in the past three years. In 2013 alone eMaint has hired 15 new employees, the majority of whom are recent college graduates. There are many good reasons to have a constant flow of new college graduates joining the company. “We are always looking for employees that have a high energy level, bring new ideas to the table, and are open to a culture of rapid change as our business continually adapts to meet the needs of our customers.” said Jon Hollander, eMaint’s Executive Vice President of Operations.

eMaint’s flagship product is X3, a cloud based Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS). X3 is supported by a full range of services – from implementation to training in advanced applications such as predictive maintenance and integration with third party applications to work order management and tracking. Its “Software as a Service” (SaaS) model emphasizes a high degree of configuration and flexible pricing models geared to the needs of all business sizes. Support for mobile devices has made the application even more accessible to a workforce of technicians who are no longer required to be in an office or at a computer to access the system. Its customer base now surpasses 18,000 users from approximately 3,500 customer sites. eMaint also enjoys a high customer retention rate of 96%.

In 2012, eMaint was named South Jersey’s fifth fastest growing private company by the Philadelphia Business Journal, received the BOSS (Best of SaaS Software) award from THINK strategies and was included in the “Philly 100” honor roll of fastest growing privately held companies by the Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia.

“It’s not often for a company that’s been around as long as we have to see the level of growth over the past few years that we have experienced,” said Samelson, who founded eMaint. “Our key to success is simple: We listen and respond to customer needs. When we say, ‘your success is our mission,’ it’s not just a slogan.”
