Sensitive Data Discovery and Protection (SDDP) can identify sensitive data in your data assets based on sensitive data identification rules and track the use of sensitive data. SDDP also provides a data overview for you to obtain the security status of your data assets in real time.

Sensitive data exists in your data assets in different forms and includes data of high value, such as customer data, technical data, and personal information. The leaks of sensitive data can incur serious economic and brand losses to your enterprise.

SDDP scans data in MaxCompute, Relational Database Service (RDS), and Object Storage Service (OSS), and determines whether the data is sensitive based on sensitive data identification rules.

  • Before using SDDP, you must activate MaxCompute, RDS, or OSS.
  • SDDP only scans your data assets for sensitive data and marks it with different risk levels. To protect your privacy, SDDP does not store any of your data.
