Tech info

Sensitive data discovery is one of the most important elements of the best data security practices. It gives a full and thorough understanding what data needs protection. The Data Discovery tool for Amazon Athena is included into the DataSunrise Database Security Suite and it is the first step to be taken to have all personally identifiable data effectively protected so that it cannot be traced back to the individual within the system. The process of finding and managing sensitive data with DataSunrise is fully automated and user-friendly. It means that our customers seeking to be compliant with national and international sensitive data regulations and laws have a great tool for that. Personally identifiable or sensitive information usually means name, home address, passport number, phone number, driver’s license number and bank card details. But the Data Discovery module from DataSunrise for Amazon Athena goes far beyond that. Thanks to easily adjustable and versatile filters our customers can retrieve and later protect any data deemed valuable and sensitive. All in all, the inability to protect sensitive data badly damages any company’s image and reputation.


If you go to the DataSunrise Web Interface you will see that by default you can find the following data across Amazon Athena database(s):

  • Dates
  • Names
  • E-mail
  • Financial (codes, credit card numbers, PIN codes, etc.)
  • Geographic (names of cities, countries, ZIP codes, etc.)
  • Medical (search for medical records)
  • Numbers (account numbers, certificates, license plates, etc.)
