As you have probably already noticed, the authors of the paper, (Net 2000 Ltd.) sell a software data anonymization tool called Data Masker. However, as the title states, the white paper really is a generic summary of the knowledge you really need to have before getting involved in the masking of data and it contains no references to any specific software. If you have any questions about issues raised in this whitepaper or wish to know more about the Data Masker software please contact us via an email to Info@DataMasker.com

 

If you would like to download an evaluation copy of the Data Masker software we would be pleased to work with you and provide advice and assistance as you build masking rules for your databases.
