Test Data Manager
*aka ‘Data Compliance Suite’
The Data Securitization and Test Data Management platform. DevSecOps your Test Data & Privacy Risks.
A Test Data Management platform that helps you identify where data security exposures reside within production data, rapidly remediate these risks to avoid data breaches, and centrally validate your compliance success. The solution also comes with IT delivery accelerators to support Data DevOps (DataOps), data analysis, data mining, test data bookings, and ultimately accelerate your software testing.
The Data Compliance / Test Data Problem Statement
IT Projects need “production-like” data to effectively develop and test platform changes. However, that requirement introduces “compliance” challenges as organizations are responsible for ensuring that individuals’ data i.e. PII (Personally Identifiable Information) are continually protected from disclosure or misuse.
The consequence of not complying with “privacy acts*” is significant both financially & reputationally.
*Privacy Acts including and not limited to APRA, CCPA, GDPR, PDPO, PDPA, HIPPA, FCRA, ECPA, etc.
Data Privacy Considerations
Key reasons you need to protect your data:
- Loss of data can have a significant impact on the individuals, for example, employees & customers.
- Mismanagement of data can lead to “compliance” penalties, fines & Sanctions.
- Companies are exposed to significant financial risk, brand damage & lawsuits.
- Privacy protection and security regulations are continually changing & evolving.
- Information breaches are becoming more and more common as organizations leverage the value of data.
The Data Challenge
Data is complex and identifying and addressing your data security exposures are non-trivial.
- Platforms are inherently large & complex (seas of data & billions of data points).
- Risks are often well hidden (needles in haystacks).
- Data security operations are manual and therefore error-prone & expensive.
- Remediation takes time. Usually months of analysis and engineering effort.
- Success, and avoidance of a data breach, depend on the competence of data engineers, platform “subject matter experts” & often luck.
The Data Compliance Solution
“The Data Bimodal”.
Enov8 Data Compliance Suite, is a holistic solution that addresses the two primary objectives of data delivery, that is agility versus security, or as we call it “The Data Bimodal”.
Out of the box features include “security-oriented” capabilities like data profiling for risk discovery, data obfuscation through encryption or masking and data validation methods to confirm compliance.
And “delivery oriented” methods like data fabrication for producing fake realistic test data, a DevOps manager for scheduling & automating data operations (DataOps) and data mining facilities for sharing & booking valid test data.
Both security & delivery methods are further supported through powerful integration features allowing us to integrate with other tools in your tool chain and a wide variety of data sources.
Key features of Enov8 Test Data Manager:
Know your Risks! Use Enov8 Data Profiling to identify where your PII (Personally Identifiable Information) and other sensitive data hides.
Manually analyzing your data can be very time-consuming, and due to volume and complexity. mistakes & oversights are easy.
Enov8’s TDM “Data Profiling” module uses Automation, AI, and Machine Learning methods to quickly understand your data and identify risks that could lead to security exposures, for example, PII (Personally Identifiable Information) and other sensitive customer data points.
Real-Time Insights that will drive platform upskilling & better data engineering, better data security, and act as a launchpad for accelerating engineering remediation.
Data masking is a process of transforming sensitive data into non-sensitive data that software testing can use. This is done by replacing confidential information with fictitious data that has the same overall characteristics as the original data. Data masking is used to protect information from unauthorized access or theft. It is also used to create test data sets that capture the statistical properties of production data without revealing confidential information.
Enov8’s platform uses AI to automatically profile your data and generate security masking routines. This removes the need for engineers to spend months understanding and de-sensitizing data. Once generated, you can run and re-run your securitization / masking routines whenever new data arrives.
Securing and masking data is critical to ensuring compliance with regulations like GDPR, HIPAA, and other information privacy laws.
However, simply securing and masking data is not enough. It’s also important to validate that the data security process was accurate and that all high-risk production data patterns have been removed before testing teams proceed with data access.
Enov8’s platform uses machine learning to validate data security processes, ensuring compliance with regulations like GDPR, HIPAA, and other information privacy laws. With Enov8, you can be confident that your data is secure and compliant.
Tracking & demonstrating compliance, with your data, can be difficult.
The Enov8 platform removes the problem by providing a birds-eye view of “data compliance” across the enterprise.
A set of complementary insights, dashboards & reports that can be easily understood by both executives, managers, & engineers. Including, the all-important, security, compliance, audit, and testing teams.
The Enov8 Compliance Module gives you visibility into your organization’s compliance posture and helps you to identify issues and correct them before they become problems.
If you are struggling to find the right data in production, our Test Data Manager’s “Data Fabrication” Module can help.
Our Fabrication module will help you prepare test data by rapidly generating realistic data that looks realistic but is fake i.e. is synthetic data.
This is useful for filling in gaps where test data is needed, but no real data exists. It can also be used to create test data that meets specific criteria, such as edge cases that are difficult to find in real data sets.
Fabricated data is another Incredible approach to generating test data since it does not utilize real information, so there are no legal or security concerns.
Test Data Booking
Test Data Booking Management is the process of making sure that all the Test Data you need is available when you need it, while also avoiding Test Data conflicts.
Enov8 Test Data Manager helps simplify & standardize the task of data access through centralized data mining & data viewing routines. No need for messy SQL statements or shared spreadsheets.
The solution also provides you with a Test Data Reservation (aka Test Booking Management) functionality, that ensures that Test Data is only used by one team, or person, at a time and prevents potential data corruption and conflict.
Is CICD leaving your Data in the Dust?
DevOps has traditionally been focused on automating the application development and deployment process. However, in many organizations, the data is still being left behind.
This can lead to delays in test data preparation and getting new features and applications to market, as well as decreased agility and increased risk.
Enov8’s DataOps Automation platform addresses this problem by providing a framework for automating the entire enterprise data life cycle. As a result, you can easily integrate it into your existing DevOps processes.
Note: The Enov8 platform provides an Open REST API, Webhooks and is language agnostic, allowing you to choose whether you want to code in SQL, Bash, JS, Java, PHP, Python or other.
Supported Data Sources
DCS works with your most popular datasources. Including relational databases, no-sql and flat files.
