Direct Computer Resources, Inc. (“DCR”), a provider of data masking and management software and test software for z / operating systems OS, today announced that customers continuing to use version 5.0 of DataVantage® for IMS will get a free upgrade to version 7.1, as the previous version will cease to be supported on August 31. The upgrade will meet security requirements as more people work from home for an extended period.
“Due to COVID-19, we are offering a free upgrade that will allow our current customers to take advantage of the data masking feature to secure their test data,” said George Lang, co-founder and chief technology officer by DCR. “They will also have access to on-the-fly data masking as well as changing the date of sensitive data to mitigate the risks associated with a personal data breach. “
