Dynamic Data Masking Combats Daunting Data Breach Risks

It seems like every day a new data breach splashes across the news. As consumers, patients, customers and social networkers many of us have a plethora of information stored in various databases well outside our control. Data security officers, DBAs and other security specialists continue to do their best to educate, protect and anticipate both internal and external threats. But … the breaches continue and so do their associated costs. There are many technologies from encryption to tokenization to database activity monitoring (DAM) to data loss prevention (DLP).

Informatica just released a new option to the mix: dynamic data masking.  The technology came into the company through the acquisition of ActiveBase. Since then I’ve had a number of people ask me if Informatica Dynamic Data Masking will complement or replace an organization’s existing data security technologies.
