What Is Data Masking?
Data masking is the process of protecting sensitive information in non-production databases from inappropriate visibility. After sanitization, the database remains perfectly usable - the look-and-feel is preserved - but the information content is secure. The Data Masker software provides a simple, repeatable and "push-button" method of scrambling data in test systems.
What Does Data Masker Do?
In one easy to use package it provides all the tools needed to substitute, scramble or otherwise obfuscate your test data. If you would like an introduction to the art of data masking please have a look at our Data Masking: What You Need To Know white paper.
Why Do You Want Data Masker?
Masked data is a sensible precaution from a business security standpoint and in many cases it is a legal obligation. Its not just a matter of trusting your employees - scrambled test information can help prevent accidental data escapes as well.
How Does Data Masker Do What It Does?
Simple and understandable rules are defined to operate on the data. The collection of these rules perform a series of known, tested and repeatable actions at the push of a button.
Each version of Data Masker has been custom written for the architecture of the target database and it operates only on that database. The database specific design makes Data Masker simple to use on very complex data and lightning fast on large tables.

Is My Data Too Complex to be Masked?
Not likely. Data Masker handles even the most intricate data structures. It can preserve data relationships between rows in tables, between rows in the same table or even internally between columns in the same row. Data synchronization issues of this type can be automatically handled by the addition of simple, easily configured masking rules. Don't worry about the size of the data either - Data Masker has successfully masked tables containing hundreds of millions of rows.
What Platforms and Databases does Data Masker Support?
Oracle and SQL Server versions are available. The Data Masker software is installed on a Windows PC and operates on both local and remote databases. There are no server side components for any Data Masker version. Oracle versions 9i, 10g, 11g and Sql Server versions 2000, 2005, 2008 and 2012 are supported.
