Accelerating QA/Testing Securely Using Data Virtualization and Masking

A huge constraint in software testing is data size. Storage is a bottleneck, and while faster SSD/Flash is available, it is often too costly due to the size of many data sets. The old joke about “good, fast, and cheap, pick any two” is true with data as providing full sets of data and code for each tester on each project seems unrealistic. While virtualization solves many of these problems you still have the problem of sharing confidential data cloned from production.  The solution here is obfuscation using data masking.  Join Tim Gorman as he explains why data virtualization and masking is the two-pronged solution to a problem every tester knows. Tim will share how to clone things securely and quickly and eliminate the biggest constraints to agile testing. In Tim’s session you will learn what data virtualization is and why is it important. You will leave with an understanding of what data masking is and why is it an important new requirement. Finally, learn how data virtualization and data masking accelerate the quality and quantity of testing.
