The Sentinel Data Scrambling utility provides a fast, flexible and efficient means of scrambling large amounts of personal (and personal sensitive) data, in an integrated way, across a variety of test systems on your landscape.
By scrambling a person’s record it is made anonymous so the original person cannot be identified, yet the data is still realistic. This allows you to conduct safe and reliable testing on IT systems that hold and process personal data, without breaching the Data Protection Act (1998).
Key features and benefits
Enables organisations to carry out valid testing of their systems
No risk of test processes or personal data leaking out into the real world, such as a test scenario accidentally sending an email or text to a real customer
Easy to set up
Works with data from any structured source
Clients determine how to scramble each field (including numeric values) based on a range of rule types
Multiple source systems can be plugged in so that data can be scrambled in exactly the same way across an entire test landscape
Uses Sentinel Data Hub technology and so is rules-based and can be managed by our clients
Can be incorporated into test system refresh processes to ensure test data is always Data Protection compliant
