FDIC is looking for a few good data sanitizers

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. is requesting information on commercial software that will sanitize data from existing sensitive databases or generate test data for application development and testing. The independent government agency supervises banks and insures bank deposits.

FDIC’s production databases include sensitive data, for which there are security concerns, the agency said in its posting on the FedBizOpps site. Companies are invited to submit information describing their product by Jan. 22. This is not a request for competitive proposals, but responses may be used to create a list of vendors for a possible future solicitation.

The application should be able to retrieve production data, sanitize data and position the test data at a designated destination. FDIC also is interested in a feature that generates test data with user-specified parameters. The software will run on Microsoft SQL Server and IMB DB2 RDBMS environments among desktop, midrange and mainframe platforms and be compatible with Oracle, Sybase and Datacom.

FDIC is undecided about the number of users and thus the size of the software license. So the agency is interested in pricing for a site license and licenses to support 100 users and 20-30 users, and per workstation or user, training and technical support.
