Data Masking

Profitap NPB feature deep dive

Data Masking

Every year, millions of people’s sensitive data is exposed in data breaches worldwide, resulting in millions of dollars in losses for many businesses.

To protect networks without leaving blind spots, network security appliances need visibility into encrypted traffic. Decrypted traffic, however, can expose confidential data to network engineers and analysts, resulting in security or privacy implications. Profitap’s X3-Series Network Packet Brokers can obfuscate sensitive data to comply with privacy regulations. Data masking enables complete visibility into decrypted data without the risk of exposing sensitive data.

Before forwarding traffic to security and monitoring tools, X3-Series Data Masking removes sensitive data from packets in real-time and replaces it with a constant value.
