Agile Implementation of Data Privacy Compliance with HushHush Components

Hush-Hush is a data masking components pack that allows companies comply with privacy regulations limiting access of the personnel to non-production environment.

Its SSIS product line installs into SSIS, expands data flows functionality, and is ready for application development in any mode: Agile, Kanban, Six Sigma, and ol' Waterfall. The person familiar with SSIS requires little-to-none learning time to start using the components. Data masking SSIS components are data flow components each representing specific algorithm. The algorithms used together are capable of masking any solution. The algorithms are very simple to understand and use. Current SSIS workflows might need simple modification vs. complete replacement and integration with stand-alone software. New data workflows using the components let you activate data masking components in non-production environment and disable them in production. New data discovery tool allows not only your database professional but also your security or compliance engineer auto-generate SSIS extract-transform-mask-load (ET(M)L) workflows without any prior knowledge of SSIS.

API-based data masking components embed into software frameworks, including those of BizTalk, SSAS, SSRS, and support privacy-in-design features of custom built software.

It is our great belief that you can develop masking solutions fast and for that you need the tool close to development, "at the tip of your fingers". After all, data masking (de-identification, anonymization) is part of the software development lifecycle. We also believe that policies are indeed just the algorithms and that they do not have to be "centralized" via repositories. We believe that policies unification for the enterprise should be achieved via distributed components. Such way allows ultimate flexibility, true enterprise -wide utilization of various data storage formats, robustness, and satisfies time-to-market requirement while providing adequate protection.

Requesting and Installing a Trial Version

We have provided an easy request form for the trial version of the components on our product page or via "Request" menu option. Simply fill in the form and click on the button. You will get an email with the links to the download of the trials and the manual. Currently, the trial version will last for two weeks, after which the data masking components while you try to run them will state that the trial period has expired. At this point you might buy a license ( this is the most desirable outcome to us) or uninstall the components via HushHush.exe or "Remove Programs". We understand that not all solutions fit all cases. Please, note, that trial version often times will have limited features and only serves to familiarize you with the components. The production version of the data masking components will contain the complete functionality.

Preparing the environment

Visual Studio 2008 is home to familiar BIDS.

Visual Studio 2010, 2012, and 2013 as of June, 2013 also can be used for SSIS development. You will need to download SSDT

Downloading and Installing

The link we will send you will lead you to the installation, the manual , and installation instructions.

Run the installer.

You are good to go.

In case the components did not refresh in SSIS Toolbox.

How to Refresh the SSIS Toolbox

In BIDS, 2008:

Right-click the toolbox and then click Choose Items.

In the Choose Toolbox Items dialog box, click the SSIS Data Flow Items tab for a data flow component.

Click the check box next to your component, and then click OK.

In SSDT, 2010, 2012:

Get into the Data Flow tab.

Right-click on the toolbox.

Refresh the Toolbox.

Using the Components

Instructions on using all the components are available in two forms: in the form of a manual for download on the installation page and as pages in wiki, each of them under their own name.
