DataSunrise Data Masking for MySQL
Data masking tool for MySQL allows organizations to protect sensitive and regulated data when a database is accessed by the company's employees or transferred to a third party. The tool randomizes or obfuscates information and makes it useless while keeping it looking realistic. This way the employees are able to perform operations with data without the risk of compromising its confidentiality and privacy.
Data masking is useful when a company transfers databases to third parties or when there is a need to limit business information exposure to unauthorized employees – analysts, developers, testers, etc.
DataSunrise data masking tool intercepts the SELECT transactions and changes it according to the masking rule parameters so that the database sends the client a table with masked values in the columns specified in the rule settings. Masked data is not reversible. It is not possible to retrieve the original data from the masked values.
DataSunrise performs both dynamic and static data masking.
Compared to static masking, proxy-based masking is performed at the time of the request. There is no need to make the copy of the database and update it every certain period of time.
