  Benefits: cost savings and reduced licensing requirements

  

    2. Expanded support for TDG & TDW: The following file formats are now supported for Test Data Generation & Test Data Warehouse:

    • Sequential multi record files
    • VSAM multi record files
    • IMS multi record files
    • PWX single record sequential files

   3. PAM Updates

    • My SQL support for data subset, data masking, TDG & TDW
    • Native Netezza support
    • PostgreSQL as a source for data subset, data masking & TDG

 

Persistent Data Masking Enhancements

 

  1. Encryption: 10.2 R1 introduces a new protection technique – Format Preserving Encryption for relational data stores.
    • Format preserving encryption allows for the replacement of alphabets with alphabets, while maintaining case, and replacement of numbers with numbers
    • Metadata preserving encryption allows for encryption as long as length and data type are maintained
    • Encryption based on a pass phrase
    • Support for string data types

Benefits: Share sensitive data with partners in a secure way. Decrypt to get back original data after processing is done. No change in metadata required.

 

   2.  Export/import Data Domain Column assignments: TDM 10.2 R1 provides the ability to export and import data domain column assignments.

Benefits: Improved productivity of compliance managers and security officers as they can now review the risk of each column offline and assign data domains to them. They do not have to be TDM users to be doing this work.

 

   3.  Integration with Secure@Source: Support for asynchronous data protection tasks initiated by Secure@Source and completed by TDM/PDM users.

Benefits: improved interop across Informatica products to detect and protect sensitive data
