“This security platform stands out as a leading solution, employing advanced cryptographic methods to protect data at every stage of its lifecycle, from creation and usage to sharing across cloud-native data repositories.
The Proxy for Postgres Dynamic Data Masking serves as an intermediary layer between your applications and Postgres databases. Within this framework, data residing in databases is encrypted or tokenized to ensure data-at-rest protection. When data is in use, it is decrypted and/or masked in accordance with role-based access controls (RBAC), tailored to specific data and application/user roles. For instance, certain personnel may view credit card numbers (CCN) as “confidential,” while others may access CCNs in their original form. This solution is essential for achieving compliance with rigorous security and privacy regulations like PCI-DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, and CCPA.
The proxy operates by intercepting SQL queries originating from applications and seamlessly managing key encryption, encryption/decryption processes, and RBAC-based masking in real-time. This approach minimizes or eliminates the need for extensive code modifications within your applications, simplifying the implementation process. The system features a two-tiered key system, allowing you to retain control over key encryption keys while avoiding the management of data encryption keys. The modular design of the proxy architecture ensures scalability to meet your evolving performance and availability requirements.
Please note that the Manager serves as a web-based graphical user interface (GUI) for configuring, managing, and generating reports on these data protection measures. Importantly, the Manager is offered free of charge and should be the initial installation.”
