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.
