Database Insider Newsletter, August: Oracle Data Masking Strengthens Security of Oracle E-Business Suite Data
By Troy Kitch on Aug 07, 2012
The August edition of Database Insider highlights new Oracle E-Business Suite templates for Oracle Data Masking:
To more easily and effectively protect sensitive data in nonproduction environments, Oracle has released the new Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 template for data masking. The latest release is part of a suite of products designed specifically to protect sensitive data in Oracle E-Business Suite environments, including Oracle Advanced Security, Oracle Database Vault, Oracle Audit Vault, and Oracle Database Firewall.
“It’s important to protect sensitive production data, especially when copying to nonproduction environments for testing, QA, development, or offshoring and outsourcing purposes,” explains Willie Hardie, vice president, Oracle Database Product Marketing. “However, manually masking data in enterprise application databases can be time-consuming, and if not done correctly, easily prone to error. Masking data must maintain referential integrity so that applications can continue to function properly without exposing sensitive data.”
