An Interview with Simon Bain, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, ShieldIO
Sponsored Content, January/February 2019
Developing against real, live data has always been the gold standard for application developers and testers—but security and compliance concerns have continued to move that data further out of reach. To solve this problem, Silicon Valley–based ShieldIO introduced Developer Shield, an innovative solution that allows developers to access and use real, live data securely, revolutionizing the development process while maintaining speed and security levels that until now have been elusive.
Q: Why is it important—and yet so challenging—for developers and testers to access real data?
A: Developers and testers must have access to data for the application development process to work. They can either develop against real data or create false data that approximates that data. Working with real data is complicated by compliance regulations. Working with false data has its own draw-backs. It can be very expensive to create, and while similar to the real data, it is totally different and can produce skewed results.
