Dynamic Data Masking is best implemented at the data access level, which allows masking to be applied with minimal disruption to the applications or other resources that are accessing the data. When deployed at the data access level, Dynamic Data Masking solutions can implement the same interface as the underlying database, so that no applications or integrations using the database have to be modified. For the quickest deployment of a solution, products that have an out of the box integration with many database products, such as NextLabs’ Data Access Enforcer (DAE) can be deployed much faster than those that require custom code. Products that have support for Format Preserving Encryption (FPE) as well also reduce the amount of customization that needs to be done to deploy a Dynamic Data Masking solution.
