Incremental Data Masking

Automatically Refresh and Secure Tables and Files

Real-Time Data Masking


Real-time data masking as defined here involves the automatic, incremental refresh and obfuscation of PII in database or file targets given new data, or changes to data in supported sources.


In the case of databases, the IRI Ripcurrent facility in IRI Voracity (which includes FieldShield and DarkShield) can apply consistent (rule-based) static data masking functions to classified data when rows are inserted or updated in MS SQL, MySQL, Oracle or PostgreSQL source tables.

In the case of structured (flat) file sources, you can set up a file watcher program through Powershell, for example, to trigger a FieldShield operation when there are new or modified files detected in the operating system.

It is also possible to define triggers through database procedures or external programs that can then activate IRI data masking functionality through FieldShield (structured) or DarkShield (semi-structured and unstructured) data masking operations. In any of these scenarios, you can work with IRI Professional Services to obtain a customized implementation!
