A holistic approach to securing sensitive data across creation, use and transmission

Theft and loss of personally identifiable or business critical information has made headlines for many years now. Our solutions are tailored to recognize sensitive information by business verticals and apply the appropriate controls, including technical, compliance driven process controls to mitigate risk and ensure customer confidence.

With extensive data encryption, classification and policy definition experience, our Data Security Services include the right mix of support for Regulatory demands, Technology challenges and Secure outsourcing.


Data Masking and Encryption

Cognizant has proven experience in data masking and encryption services across many industry verticals including banking and financial services, healthcare, insurance and manufacturing. This includes complex implementations across multiple data stores, different file systems as well as disparate enterprise systems comprising mainframes and other servers.

We utilize our own enterprise Web-based data obfuscation framework that supports a variety of database platforms and data stores including industry specific formats like EDI and XML. The solution uses a pre-defined algorithm set that handles all of the personally identified information (PII) data elements for most business conditions. Key highlights are as follows: 

  • Agent-based architecture for multi-platform support
  • Web Based UI for configuration, monitoring and management
  • Multi-threaded engine for better performance and integration with existing job schedulers
  • Out-of-box obfuscation algorithms for common PII elements
  • Easily customizable obfuscation algorithms
