How IBM Data Privacy Passports extends your data security

Protect sensitive data

IBM Data Privacy Passports is a consolidated data-centric protection technology that secures SQL structured data sources accessed via JDBC or REST APIs and enables privacy of that data after it leaves the system of record, minimizing the impact of security breaches and noncompliance risk.

Move data securely between environments

Encrypt data into Trusted Data Objects, or enforce masking, before it leaves the system of record. This protection follows your data as it traverses the enterprise network and prevents unauthorized access at all locations and end points.

Prevent unauthorized access

Protect data by applying several techniques—including encryption, masking and hashing—to reveal only data that is authorized for a given user based on central policy controls. At the point of data consumption, the policy defined using the Passport Controller determines a user’s entitlement to see the data.

Maintain control of your data

Once there is no longer a need to share data, future access can be revoked at any time through key deletion or a dynamic policy update.

Enable verifiable security and compliance

Centralizing access and control of your protected enterprise data across all platforms reduces cost and complexity, and allows you to be audit-ready in a single place.
