DarkShield Platforms & Pricing

Unstructured Data Masking You Can Afford

Operational Platforms



IRI DarkShield requires leverages the Workbench IDE, built on Eclipse™ for data classification and discovery, masking job configuration and execution, and job auditing. It also requires a masking executable licensed on the same platform.


Compatible operating systems, on-premise or in the cloud, are Windows, Linux, or MacOS (Sierra). If for some reason you require the masking executable to run on a different system than Workbench, let us know.


DarkShield performance will depend on data volume and complexity; a minimum of 4GB of RAM and 2 physical or virtual cores is recommended.
