Security

Q
What security features does FUJITSU Enterprise Postgres provide?

Transparent data encryption
All data in FUJITSU Enterprise Postgres can be protected using simple-to-set-up encryption that utilises the same algorithms as used by the US Government and financial institutions — Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), 256-bit transparent data encryption, PCI DSS-compliant. FUJITSU Enterprise Postgres provides data encryption, log encryption, and internal communication channel encryption.
Data masking
Our masking methods include character shuffling, nulling or deletion, encryption, masking, and word substitution, to protect sensitive data such as credit card numbers, bank account details, and other sensitive personal information.
Different privileges have access to different views of the same data. Employees in a bank call centre, for example, see a restricted view of sensitive data, whereas employees in a bank branch can see a full view of customer information.
