IRI FieldShield helps you adhere to both business rules and data privacy laws in a data-centric context.

Profile and protect database tables, flat files, and other sources at the column (field) level. Choose which columns remain clear as you secure the others with one or more supplied or custom data masking functions.

Consider some of the advantages of using FieldShield:

Sensitive data discovery
Finds and classifies PII, PHI, and other data matching pattern and fuzzy search criteria in databases, files, and dark data sources.
Field-level protection
Protects faster and surer than other, bulk protection methods. Leaves non-sensitive data in its original format and available for regular processing. Even if one field is compromised, the others stay safe with their own protection (vs. breaches where one password exposes all).
Multiple function choices (i.e., encrypt, mask, pseudonymize, hash, de-ID, randomize, substring, math, etc.)
Bases security decisions on the nature of each datum, on considerations like: security level, reversibility, ciphertext appearance, and speed.
Multi-platform executable and external libraries
Deploys concealment and revelation widely and easily, through bulk/batch, real-time applications, or through stored (SQL) procedures (e.g., in-situ encryption).
Database and file agnostic, multi-source and target
Secures data at sources and endpoints across multiple database platforms and file formats with the same product, and at the same time.
Random value lookups
Pseudonymizes PII using data from the same or third-party source(s) to provide realism, safety, and reversibility (optional).
Format-preserving encryption
Preserves the look and feel of the original values, fooling hackers and enabling application and load testing while preserving referential integrity.
Cross-table rule application and storage
Defines, enforces, and re-uses protections for common-named tables and the data class libraries you've identified across the database(s). Preserves referential integrity because common start values get the same end values.
Standard and custom National ID (NID) masking
Saves research and design time in complying with de-identification requirements and local data privacy laws.
Hashing and tokenization routines
Validates the integrity, and improves the security, of encryption operations.
XML audit log file option
Verifies data privacy law compliance efforts and supports queries and reporting of all runtime details.
Multi-source, single (or multi)-target
Saves protection design and execution time by protecting many different files and tables in the same job script and I/O pass. Consolidates multiple protections and authorizations in a single target, and thus reduces both throughput and data synchronization concerns; i.e., different people can reveal different fields from the same document.
Metadata compatibility with IRI CoSort (SortCL) and MIMB-supported platforms
Runs data protection with data transformation, migration, and reporting in the same job script and I/O pass. MIMB users can convert existing metadata in BI, CRM, DB, ETL, and modeling tools, into the data definition file (.DDF) format that FieldShield uses to protect the data used in those apps.
Easy 4GL scripts supported by an Eclipse GUI with: metadata discovery and job creation wizards, function dialogs, syntax-aware editing, and runtime options
Reduces the learning curve in discovering, profiling, and protecting data in disparate sources. Data layouts and field functions are self-documenting so that data architects, DBAs, and compliance teams can easily design, modify, and verify jobs. Eliminates the complexity of proprietary GUIs and cumbersome database encryption implementation.
