Reliable Heroku Data Masking Tool

Data masking is a necessary feature when testers or technical support administrators need to access the database that includes credit card numbers, email addresses, phone numbers and other types of personal information. Masked data can still be used for testing or additional program developing purposes. Masking can be static or dynamic. Static masking is made by copying the whole database and replacing the genuine data. DataSunrise performs obfuscation dynamically, which allows avoiding use of extra space for the duplicate database.

Masking rules are easy to adjust to different needs. Rule settings provide the opportunity to mask contents of certain database elements, mask data requested by a group of users, hosts or IP ranges, choose among wide range of masking patterns for email addresses, phone numbers, CC numbers and other types of data, set a time schedule.
