Hides original data with random characters or figures to protect the actual data while having a functional substitute for occasions when it is not advisable to show sensitive real data.

Data will keep looking real and consistent and will remain usable for purposes such as testing and training. The most common data type which may need masking method is where the data contains Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or Sensitive Personal Data (SPD). For further information, see Function behavior in common PII.

tDataMasking reads a data set row by row and creates a structurally similar but inauthentic version of the data after having applied specific functions on data fields. It generates one row for each input row.
