Business Issues

Naturally, the best way to set up test sets is to go back to their source and get them directly from production. What IT specialist hasn’t, at some point or another, scoured an information system used for testing to find the employee payroll files? Simple curiosity can become a nightmare for the company when sensitive information is disclosed publicly. Many businesses are already aware of this issue and most of them have implemented physical separation of their production and testing platforms. However, have they all really dealt with this confidentiality problem?

The Gartner and Forester statistics reports show that 70% of security-related incidents and 80% of risks originate with companies’ internal employees and that 65% of risks are never detected.

Fraudulent use of sensitive data has resulted in the introduction of laws and recommendations by most governments around the world (like the GDPR, the US Patriot Act and the HIPAA standard for the healthcare industry).

The need to comply with these laws, the risk of heavy fines and loss of business due to data leaks are all pushing companies to find solutions to protect the confidentiality of sensitive information.

Functional and technical architecture

DOT Anonymizer architecture

DOT-Anonymizer has a single, central engine to protect the data in all of your databases. It can be set up in any type of configuration:

  • After restoration of a production database to a test database
  • In combination with an ETL (Extract, Transfer, Load)
  • In combination with a data replication tool

The anonymized data can be used as a test resource that replicates actual-use conditions while complying with the legal constraints on data transfers.

  • Data is anonymized via engines that use various algorithms (scrambling, masking, directories, etc.) which are provided standard and are (of course) irreversible. Users also define rules which will allow them to send the data to be anonymized to the engine chosen for this operation.

  • All of the engines/rules can be extensively configured via a studio available as a web application or a rich client application.

The DOT-Anonymizer solution is based on a high-performance, multi-platform service in charge of providing anonymized data to different clients.

  • Our server’s multi-protocol communication capacity (DTAQ, TCP/ IP, HTTP, etc.) and the client (command line-type) application program interfaces (APIs) provided allow our server to be integrated at all levels of the data management chain by taking into account a company’s technical environments and the diversity of the information system.
