What is the Redact service?
The Pangea Redact service helps developers limit the sprawl of sensitive information by performing redaction using defined rules. The Redact service comes equipped with out-of-the-box redaction rules to identify personally identifiable information (PII), payment card industry (PCI) data and other sensitive information. The Redact service has native integration to other Pangea services that have data storage requirements (e.g., Pangea Secure Audit Log).
Why use the Redact service?
Many privacy laws (e.g., GDPR) require companies to minimize the retention of sensitive information. Essentially, these laws require that sensitive personal data only be retained for as long as necessary and never be retained without having a reasonable need to do so. The Redact service can be used to cleanse data of unnecessary sensitive information prior to storage, reducing the risk of accidentally introducing sensitive content where it is not required.
