    quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
--  According to Gartner, "Adopting data masking helps enterprises raise
    the level of security and privacy assurance against abuses. At the

    with the security and privacy standards recommended by
    regulating/auditing authorities."

    maturity for data masking. By 2016, the static data masking [SDM]
    market will reach the Plateau of Productivity in Gartner's Hype Cycle,
