19.1 Overview of Oracle Data Masking

Enterprises run the risk of breaching sensitive information when copying production data into non-production environments for the purposes of application development, testing, or data analysis. Oracle Data Masking helps reduce this risk by irreversibly replacing the original sensitive data with fictitious data so that production data can be shared safely with non-production users. Accessible through Oracle Enterprise Manager, Oracle Data Masking provides end-to-end secure automation for provisioning test databases from production in compliance with regulations.
