Yokneam, Israel – 23 October 2023: Quadrant Knowledge Solutions announced today that it has named K2view as a 2023 technology leader in the SPARK Matrix: Data Masking, 2023.
The Quadrant Knowledge Solutions’ SPARK Matrix™: Data Masking, 2023 research report includes a detailed analysis of the global market regarding emerging technology and market trends. The research comprises vendors’ product features and functionalities, as well as competitive differentiating factors. The research provides competitive landscape and vendor analysis to enable technology vendors to enhance their understanding of the market and implement a growth-oriented technical roadmap.
According to Saurabh, Analyst, Quadrant Knowledge Solutions, “K2view offers a robust and comprehensive data masking solution that addresses the challenges of modern hybrid environments. Leveraging patented micro-database technology, the solution uses entity-based data masking to enforce referential integrity of the masked data, regardless of data source diversity. This enterprise-scale solution supports static and dynamic masking use cases, structured and unstructured data, masks data from any source, and is especially beneficial when data is fragmented across sources. The K2view solution offers user-friendly implementation for non-technical users, harnesses AI-driven automation, and supports advanced capabilities and methods for synthetic data generation.”
Yuval Perlov, CTO at K2view, said, “Our entity-based data masking solution ensures that the data is masked in flight, in the context of its business entity (customer, for example) and that referential integrity of the masked data is maintained across all source systems. Plus, both static and dynamic data masking are supported in the same platform, making it ideal for any use case involving the protection of sensitive data."
“Quadrant Knowledge Solutions defines data masking as a process to replace organizational data with structurally similar and authentic data. The goal is to protect sensitive data while providing a functional substitute. Data masking techniques can include substituting portions of datasets and reorganizing and scrambling the data, among others. “
It is a pivotal tool for enterprises aiming to fortify their data security infrastructure. Organizations can significantly diminish vulnerabilities to unauthorized access and potential data breaches by systematically obfuscating sensitive data. This methodology aligns with stringent data protection regulations and optimizes operational workflows, expediting data-driven analytics and reporting. Data masking emerges as a more cost-efficient and streamlined solution than traditional encryption, adeptly countering external cyber threats and insider risks, if any. Furthermore, it facilitates a secure data-sharing paradigm, allowing developers to understand better and better safeguarded ecosystems without compromising the production data.
The evolution of data masking is rooted in the need to protect sensitive data while ensuring its usability, especially in non-production environments. Initially, the most security-conscious organizations developed in-house tools and methods to safeguard data against breaches. As the technology evolved, it became evident that specialized data masking tools could identify and protect sensitive data fields more effectively than many internal processes. This shift democratized data protection, allowing organizations of all sizes to safeguard sensitive information more efficiently.

At K2view, we believe that every enterprise should be able to leverage its data to become as disruptive and agile as the best companies in its industry.
We make this possible through our patented Data Product Platform, which extracts, creates, and manages a complete and compliant dataset for every business entity (customer, order, loan, etc.) – on demand, and in real-time. The dataset is always in sync with its underlying sources, adapts to changes in the source structures, and is instantly accessible to any authorized data consumer.
Data Product Platform fuels many operational use cases, including customer 360, test data management, synthetic data generation, data privacy management, data migration, data pipelining and more – to deliver business outcomes in less than half the time, and at half the cost, of any other alternative.
The platform inherently supports modern data architectures – data mesh, data fabric, and data hub – and deploys in cloud, on-premises, or hybrid environments.
