Software-based security solutions encrypt the data to prevent it from theft. However, a malicious program or a hacker could corrupt the data in order to make it unrecoverable, making the system unusable. Hardware-based security solutions can prevent read and write access to data and hence offers very strong protection against tampering and unauthorized access.
Backups are used to ensure data which is lost can be recovered and nowadays is very important to keep a backup.
Data Masking of structured data is the process of obscuring specific data within a database table or cell to ensure that data security is maintained and sensitive information is not exposed to unauthorized personnel.
