Just as IRI FieldShield product users can reach and mask personally identifiable information (PII) — and IRI Voracity platform users can integrate and govern structured files — in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets, IRI DarkShield users can now find and mask PII in unstructured files stored in S3.
One of the primary uses of IRI FieldShield is to encrypt and decrypt sensitive data in database or flat-file columns. FieldShield relies on a passphrase to derive a symmetrical encryption key used at encryption and decryption time.
The Data Class File Masking Job wizard in IRI Workbench protects large numbers of structured file sources that have been previously classified. While it was possible to use the data classes in many of the existing wizards, if the data class library included a lot of classified fields, selection of the classified sources was cumbersome.
