What do you think of Informatica Persistent Data Masking?

What is our primary use case?

We have a lot of applications with different functionality. We use Informatica mainly for sensitivity tests. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the structure masking and platform masking.  I also like that for Salesforce integration we can use Informatica Cloud. For on-premise, normally we do the SQL server database.

What needs improvement?

I don't see where it has much room for improvement. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with this solution for the last two years. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have a team of 10 users on-premise. Their roles are doing the initial analysis for identification. We don't currently have plans to increase usage. 

What other advice do I
