Masking in Action

ADM identifies and masks sensitive data in all databases, flat files, and structured files.
XML Before XML- after

XML Files

Seamless XML Content Masking

  • Navigate the complex hierarchical structure of XML files with sophisticated rules and logic-based masking.
  • Discover and mask nested elements and attributes with context-aware masking that maintains data integrity.

Ensure your personal data remains protected during development and testing—without breaking XML schema or important application logic.

Flat Delimited Files

Your Flat Delimited Files, Covered

  • Discover and mask data in flat delimited files, even without contextual clues and data tags.
  • Preserve file structure and data utility for testing and analytics.

Protect sensitive data stored in a range of files types to comply with data regulations and mandates

Databases

Robust Database Masking for Security and Compliance

  • Seamlessly mask large volumes of data without impacting database performance.
  • Handle various data types and formats, from simple text to large binary objects.
  • Ensure applications using the database continue to function correctly with masked data.

Common Obstacles

Speed

Lack of rapid planning and execution

Complexity

Increased complexity of DataOps and security needs for effective solutions

Compliance

Potential fines, reputation damage and data loss

Data Preservation

  • Preserve important data characteristics so that your data remains functional but still anonymized.

Example 1: Format-Preserving Masking retains data structures, like American Express card format, for system validation without revealing actual card details.

  • Length: Amex card numbers typically have 15 digits, in contrast to most other credit card numbers, which have 16 digits.
  • Starting Digits: Amex numbers usually start with the digits "34" or "37." These initial numbers are called the Issuer Identification Number (IIN) or Bank Identification Number (BIN) and help identify the issuing institution.

Example 2: Luhn Algorithm Masking creates valid-looking numbers that pass the Luhn check, ensuring realistic, non-active data representation in systems.

Credit-Card

Mask Consistently Across Different Data Sources

  • With multiple databases in an enterprise, it’s common to mask data separately in each database, which can lead to inconsistent masking and breaking of referential integrity.
  • ADM empowers you to mask important data consistently and with referential integrity in mind, saving time and boosting efficiency.

Example: An SSN such as 109-98-1767 (not real but adheres to the standard—109 shows it was issued in NY) can be masked as 109-00-5874 consistently across all other databases, files, and more.

Advanced, Customizable Algorithms Provide Unique Benefits

Our team of experts uses advanced groovy scripts to create customizable and granular masking algorithms that optimize security and functionality.

Category-Preserving Masking

ADM allows to you to mask information while maintaining important categories for your data

Example: Mask a user’s age with a fictional number that is still within the same age group as the original. A senior citizen will remain a senior citizen, and a teenager will remain a teenager.

Compound Masking

Compound masking allows you to mask unique, interconnected fields.

Example: If a first and last name are masked into new values, an original email address derived from the name will automatically be generated with the new values.

Show More

Synchronized Fields

ADM allows you to maintain related fields, so your data remains logical.

Example: When changing a user’s age, their birthday will also automatically adjust, maintaining continuity and logic.
