Mentis is strong on data discovery and protection and possesses innovative scanning and masking technologies. However, it has no database assessment or threat prevention capabilities, and third-party integrations are lacking. A focus on Oracle and PeopleSoft databases makes it less applicable to other types of databases.
The Mentis Suite comprises the following products:
- iDiscover for automated high-performance discovery of sensitive information in databases
- iMask for dynamic data masking
- iScramble for static masking of non-production data
- iMonitor for monitoring database activity and analyzing applications accessing those databases
- iProtect for database access control
- iRetire for automating data retention policies
Although each is offered independently, the Mentis products are built upon a common software platform and can be easily integrated into a single suite.
