  • Social Security Number
  • Telephone/Fax
  • Users can also create and edit their own search filters.

    Search of sensitive information is performed across all available database elements. In case it is necessary to find sensitive data in a particular database or table, it is required to specify the location. Also, the user selects data types to be searched. After identifying the columns containing sensitive data, Masking, Audit and Security rules are created. Security and masking rules allow users to make those columns available for a limited group of employees and reduce exposure of production databases to unauthorized personnel.
