Data anonymization software is an ally to all organizations or companies, helping them comply with regulations, reduce risks, minimize liabilities, consolidate customer confidence, save time, and increase productivity.
The software must be developed using advanced technology that allows it to adapt to the unique characteristics of each company. In addition, it must allow information to be securely shared with other organizations in any language.
Masker covers all of this, and more. Discover everything that Pangeanic's data anonymization software can offer your company.
What is data anonymization software?
Anonymization software is a technological tool that processes sensitive data stored and used by a company or organization, so that it does not contain any personally identifiable information (PII).
It is a sophisticated system that accurately detects identifiers within a data set to alter or remove them and ultimately generate an anonymized data output
Current uses of data anonymization software
These days, anonymization or data masking tools are used to obtain non-identifiable values that, at the same time, can be useful and shared or disclosed while complying with privacy protection standards.
Companies use these systems to perform data analysis in a secure manner and to neutralize the negative impact of information leakage.
Its main applications
Among the main applications of anonymization software is the processing of confidential and personal data in:
Banking institutions: anonymization must be used on data containing information such as balances, social security numbers, account numbers, etc.
Health insurance: for the protection of PII such as addresses, medical conditions, or social security numbers, among other information.
Public Administrations: data masking tools allow them to comply with the transparency and availability of information, but without the risk of harming the privacy of third parties.
Hospitals and medical or healthcare companies: for the purpose of sharing or publishing medical records, clinical results, scientific studies, etc.
Legal, accounting or consulting services: to process legal documents and proceed with their disclosure.
Masker: Pangeanic's data anonymization software
Masker is Pangeanic's data masking solution that uses artificial intelligence (AI) for effective and secure anonymization.
It is a system that automatically and accurately identifies PII to anonymize identifiers, according to the settings, custom labels, and type of data masking selected by the user.
Masker detects and anonymizes sensitive data categorized as direct identifiers (names, phone numbers, addresses, ID documents, etc.), and, if a more aggressive level of de-identification is desired, it also allows the anonymization of indirect identifiers, such as dates, employment information, religion, etc.
The main features of Masker are as follows:
It offers 5 different types of anonymization (data masking), allowing identifiers to be replaced by means of:
○ Data tags.
○ Blank spaces.
○ Temporary identifiers.
○ Black lines.
It allows flexible implementation (subscription, local, or API) and comes with a free trial and subscription plans.
It is multilingual. It offers the possibility of integrating machine translation into the platform, with 25 languages available.
It allows both permanent and reversible anonymization. It irreversibly removes the identifiers, but has the option to repersonalize when the user deems it appropriate.
It has advanced features that allow:
○ Training and configuration for the optimization of specific languages or vocabulary.
○ Cloning of AI for unique domains.
It is compatible with many formats (using structured and unstructured data). For example:
○ Business applications, such as MS Office documents.
○ Text files, such as PDFs, presentations, spreadsheets, or other formats created in word processors.
○ Data from social networks, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter.
Which problems can it solve?
Comply with privacy policies with regard to personal information. This reduces the risk of loss of customer trust and avoids fines or damage compensation costs.
Securely share sensitive anonymized information within the organization or with third parties. This reduces risks and streamlines communication, optimizes business procedures, and increases productivity.
Securely store data because it means bringing an additional layer of security to the information.
Increase efficiency when detecting and replacing PII, thanks to automation and the use of AI, which also leads to reducing efforts and costs.
