Put Your Data Protection on Auto Pilot

In 1933, aviator Wiley Post flew his single-engine Lockheed Vega around the world in a eight days. He had a navigator to help him stay alert and fight fatigue.

Today, autopilots perform the same duties as a highly trained pilot. For some in-flight routines and procedures, autopilots are even better than manual attention. They have made flights safer and more efficient.

How many of us are dependent on manual actions to make our data safer? Many organizations make use of manual scripting to mask or de-identify the data in their non-production environments. Aside from the information that we are going by is housed in spreadsheets that may or may not be entirely accurate, this work is fairly boring for developers and not the stuff that one looks to get into the office to tackle.

What are the chances that an overworked, fatigued and distracted staff may make a mistake in the process? This is not something that you want to have your developers, DBAs and the like tied up to be responsible for.

In fact, you don’t want to have to do any coding at all to make this work. Take it up a level, use intelligent software to automate the process and take the need for coding out of the process. Let the developers do what they do best.

Add value to key systems! Enhance your data security and reduce costs by putting your data masking process on autopilot !
