DataSunrise Data Masking for IBM Netezza

If you need your contractors to access your live IBM Netezza database, it would be wise to hide its real contents. And this is the case when IBM Netezza data masking tool by DataSunrise can come in handy.

DataSunrise prevents sensitive data exposure by masking it dynamically. Actual data in the database output is replaced with random values, predefined strings or asterisks on-the-fly. As a result, the risk of data leak is decreased dramatically.

Tech info

Protect your sensitive data with IBM Netezza data masking tool by DataSunrise. It is designed to prevent critical data exposure during testing or application development procedures. IBM Netezza data masking tool functionality is based on replacing genuine data with specified characters.

DataSunrise can perform both dynamic and static data masking for IBM Netezza databases. Let’s see what is the difference between them.

Static masking is basically used when a company needs to create a testing or developing environment. In this case, we make a duplicate of the database and apply required masking algorithms for selected columns to make sure all critical data is masked. It allows you to share the database with outsourced developers and testing teams.

Dynamic data masking enables you to perform data masking on-the-fly. The confidential data never leaves the database. IBM Netezza data masking tools intercept the queries and change the answer of the server by replacing sensitive data with fake data according to configured masking rules. Dynamic masking rules can be customized to mask data only for certain IP addresses, applications or hosts.

How IBM Netezza data masking tool works

We have a database with some personal data. Let’s assume that we have a department that needs an access to the columns containing names and contact numbers.

Netezza Data Masking by DataSunrise

We create masking rules for each column, select IP addresses or groups of database users for whom the data will be masked. DataSunrise includes various masking patterns for different types of data. We used some of the built-in patterns. After configuring the rules, we try to retrieve the same database once again and below you can see the result of the query.
