This case study of Great Eastern Assurance is based on a December 2020 survey of PKWARE customers by TechValidate, a third-party research service.


The cybersecurity needs that most influenced their decision to use PKWARE solutions:

  • Automation
  • Data tracking (discovery/classification)
  • Unauthorized files sharing or theft
  • Custom data masking

The compliance measures that most influenced their decision to use PKWARE solutions:

  • GDPR
Script-based masking has been very challenging in terms of running scripts, validations and access grants to the stakeholders. With PKWARE, there is no risk as the governance process is tightly coupled with the tool.
