Find and Mask Data at Risk
Classify PII centrally, search for it globally, and mask it deterministically, automatically. Preserve realism, referential integrity and/or reversibility using encryption, pseudonymization, redaction, and other shareable rules for production and test environments.Learn more
Comply with Data Privacy Laws
Delete, deliver, or anonymize data subject to CIPSEA, DPA, FERPA, GDPR, GLBA, HIPAA, PCI, POPI, etc. using your on-premise or cloud hardware. Verify compliance via human- and machine-readable search reports, job audit logs, and re-identification risk scores.Learn more
Protect Data throughout its Lifecycle
Optionally mask data as you map it. Apply FieldShield functions in IRI Voracity ETL, federation, migration, replication, subsetting, or analytic jobs. Or, run FieldShield from Actifio, Commvault or Windocks to mask DB clones. Use deterministic masking functions for consistency to preserve data integrity across sources.Learn more

Take the FieldShield Quiz
- Do you collect or process PII or other "data at risk"? Do you know where (all of) it is?
- Is that data safe from a breach; i.e., could it be used were it stolen or exposed?
- Does your department comply with data privacy regulations? Can you prove it?
- Do you use multiple tools or methods to protect different DB columns in different ways?
- Do you need data masked the same way across different database and file formats?
- Can you protect only the data at risk, so you can see and use the non-sensitive data?
- Does your masked data look real enough? Is it deterministic (referentially correct)?
- Can you score your masked data sets for re-ID risk and anonymize quasi-identifers?
- Does it take too long to learn, implement, modify, or optimize your data masking jobs?
- Can you mask data in your ETL, subsetting, migration/replication, CDC or reporting tasks?
