Data masking report finds GDPR is pressing the need for solutions

Christian Hargrave Christian Hargrave in Security Thursday, August 23, 2018

GDPR compliance is driving enterprises toward data masking to make sure user's sensitive data is protected while giving companies similar realistic data.

Dataguise has been recognized in a new report on data masking by Gartner titled, Market Guide for Data Masking. As data growth continues and data analytics becomes a mission-critical operation throughout the enterprise, Dataguise has been supporting the need to protect sensitive information in the wake of new data privacy regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

By 2021, the global enterprise use of data masking (DM) or similar de-identification techniques will increase to 40%, an increase from 15% in 2017,” according to Gartner in the Market Guide for Data Masking. “DM protects sensitive data by providing users fictitious, yet realistic data, instead of real and sensitive data while maintaining their ability to carry out business processes.

Enterprises are under increasing pressures to secure privacy data in the prevention of unauthorized insider and outsider access. Data privacy mandates such as the GDPR are moving IT security and risk management professionals to take increasing actions to ensure the protection of sensitive customer data.

“Review your data security and compliance roadmap. Focus on vendors that offer more than one type of DM technology and support consistent policies across your DM scenarios, applications, and platforms,” noted the report. “Evaluate vendor capabilities to address the full lifecycle of data masking. Keeping up to date with changes in the environment is important. Regulatory requirements and threats change, application schema changes, additional data sources or applications, or changes in the quantity of data to mask can affect the performance and effectiveness of the masking implementation and require periodic adjustments." - JT Sison, VP, Marketing and Business Development
