Data Masking, sometimes called de-identification or redaction, is a technique used to secure your sensitive data in non-production environments such as Development and QA by replacing sensitive data with fictitious but realistic data, eliminating the risk of exposing your sensitive data to unauthorized parties. Delphix's unique approach to data masking involves breaking the logical association between unique identifying information (for example, social security numbers) and personally identifiable data (for example, name and address). Delphix, uses this simple 5-step process to protect your data and each step can be completed with a simple push of a button. Delphix processes for protecting sensitive data are measurable, documented, and repeatable, providing clearly auditable results.
