Clonetab Data Scrambling for Oracle eBusiness Suite, PeopleSoft & Databases

Automation of Scrambling / Obfuscation & related tasks, securely

When the database is cloned from production or similar environments to non-production environments, several pieces of confidential information may flow in to these target instances posing security and compliance related issues. Compliance while performing refreshes and compliance while bringing sensitive data from production to target can be controlled using Clonetab. The features like passwords encryption, data scrambling, password masking in logs makes Clonetab deliver secure and compliant refreshes which are not possible with normal shell scripts.

The in-built roles which include Compliance manager gives compliance administrators more control over refreshes. They can define the refreshes with a flexibility of which instances should undergo data scrambling, what tables & columns needs to be scrambled, which algorithm needs to be used etc. More importantly, this access can be kept only with compliance administrator and can be revoked from DBA, so that DBAs can initiate the refresh, but cannot skip the sensitive data scrambling steps. This makes the refreshes more secure.

Reports: Clonetab also provides various types of reports out of the box. The reports on refreshes, patches, services administration, roles to users etc provides more tools for the managers to have compliant refreshes.

Audit trail: The tasks created, changes to tasks etc can be tracked as Clonetab maintains Audit trail of these activities.
