Platform and Data Availability

IRI FieldShield jobs work identically across all Linux, Unix, and Windows platforms. FieldShield jobs and library functions can be run from:

  • API calls
  • batch programs
  • command-line operations
  • database applications
  • SQL procedures (custom, in-situ)
  • The IRI Workbench GUI, built-on Eclipse™

There are no restrictions on table or file sizes, or the number of columns or fields. Most FieldShield functions can be applied to more than 100 single- and multi-byte data types in these sources.

Direct access to Excel, RDBMS tables, and many legacy data sources requires ODBC drivers. Among the flat-file formats that FieldShield can protect directly (without drivers) include: CSV (and other delimited), fixed-position text, flat XML, LDIF, CLR and ELF web logs, Micro Focus Variable Length (MFVL), and Unicode.

If you need to mask data in more proprietary, semi-structured, or unstructured data sources, see this page and tell us what you have.
