Gartner Positions Oracle in Leaders Quadrant for Data Masking

Gartner recently announced that Oracle Data Masking Pack, part of Oracle Enterprise Manager’s quality management and Oracle Database Security defense-in-depth solution, has been named a leader in the first Magic Quadrant for Data Masking Technology report.

Oracle Data Masking strengths highlighted in the report include:

  • High performance data masking in Oracle Databases
  • Integration into Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c resulting in easy adoption
  • Availability of pre-built templates for popular packaged systems such as, Oracle E-Business Suite
  • Database security expertise and strong DBMS security portfolio

About Oracle Data Masking
Oracle Data Masking ensures privacy by transforming sensitive data before it is transferred to test, QA, and other non-production environments, addressing regulatory compliance for both Oracle and non-Oracle Databases.


Oracle Data Masking Pack: Production data is cloned and masked before being copied to Test.

Key Features:

  • Application data discovery
  • Centralized extensible format library
  • Comprehensive mask techniques
  • High performance masking with role-based security
  • Optimized for Oracle and non-Oracle databases
  • Integrated with Oracle testing products
  • Integrated with data subsetting

Oracle Data Masking completely replaces sensitive information such as; names, account numbers, SSNs, financial results, purchasing transactions, etc. in your development, test and QA systems with data that cannot be “reverse engineered” to reveal its original source. This allows production data to be safely used for development, testing, or sharing with out-source or off-shore partners for other non-production purposes. The Pack provides extensive search capabilities to scan enterprise databases for sensitive data discovery based on established data patterns and models.

The solution allows masking of all the related data elements automatically while preserving referential relationships combining the sensitive data columns and associated relationships in an Application Data Model. Oracle Data Masking can detect data dependencies, such as foreign key constraints and replaces sensitive information transparently. This ensures that the referential integrity necessary for applications to work and function properly will continue be in place, even on development systems.

Benefits:

  • Administrators will save time and eliminate risk by replacing individual scripts and routines written by DBAs with centrally managed and deployed libraries of masking processes.
  • Provides secure, scalable and automated solution to create test environments from production data using bulk masking.The solution enables faster time-to-market by speeding up the development process while helping organizations comply with privacy regulations and confidentiality policies.
  • Enables rapid DBA productivity through the use of application masking templates.
  • Supports custom data masks that are defined once and can be used every time that set of data needs to be masked.
  • Data security is integrated within the application management lifecycle, meaning that DBAs can provide realistic-masked production data to developers or testing groups for accurate application testing while reducing their storage costs by not having to provision an entire production environment for each developer or project.
  • Oracle Data Masking Pack is built into and installed with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c.

Data Masking for Security and Compliance
Oracle Data Masking offers a comprehensive and customizable library of masking formats, templates and policies that can be used to replace sensitive information with realistic simulated values—all with just a few mouse clicks. The sensitive data never has to leave the Oracle Database or the production environment. This maintains data security and compliance through privacy and confidentiality polices on shared production data. The solution helps protect against unauthorized access to data that is being shared with off-shore developers, partners or 3rd party vendors.


Oracle Data Masking Pack: Centralized Extensible Format Library.

In addition, Oracle Data Masking allows organizations to enforce compliance with regulatory requirements such as; Sarbanes-Oxley, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, as well as numerous other laws and regulations that restrict the use of actual customer data.

Oracle Data Masking continues to gain strong adoption, check out the latest customers to see how they are benefiting from the solution:
