How To Use PeopleSoft Data Masking And Logging To Detect Security Threats

Michael Cunningham - March 22, 2022

Security threats exist at the application, transaction, and data level. Unfortunately, default PeopleSoft data masking and logging capabilities are insufficient to meet today’s modern data security and privacy requirements.

In this Appsian Solution demo, we’ll show you how dynamic data masking and real-time analytics work together to secure identity, control & monitor access to sensitive transactions, protect UI data, and provide deep visibility into data access and usage.

While all activity should be monitored for security and compliance purposes, high privilege user accounts should be continuously monitored and analyzed for potentially malicious trends.

Click-To-View Data Masking

Allowing access to sensitive data fields to everyone with valid login credentials can lead to unnecessary exposure, resulting in non-compliance with regulatory requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, etc. Appsian offers several types of dynamic data masking, including full, partial, click-to-view masking, or complete redaction to any data field in PeopleSoft.

As we demonstrate in this video, click-to-view field masking helps protect against unnecessary exposure of sensitive data while still allowing users to view data with expressed intent. The Appsian Security Platform (ASP) creates very specific and targeted logs in PeopleSoft. These logging features like click-to-view masking develop a complete audit trail of all data access for quick reference.

Real-Time Analytics

Appsian’s transaction-level activity logging captures granular, real-time information on who a user is, what they’re trying to access, and where they’re coming from. With that information, our real-time analytics application aggregates data access and usage trends. Then, it displays them on a visually rich dashboard, eliminating the time-consuming need to translate unstructured logs into actionable information.
