Is SecureData encryption just using a UDx to obfuscate values?

The presentation mentioned "Analyze Without Unencrypting with Voltage SecureData", but it seems like perhaps that is a misnomer. It's just that the decryption is obfuscated through the UDX?

Asked at the Keep Data Private presentation by Rich Gaston at the 2020 Big Data Conference.

    SecureData isn't "obfuscation", it's proper key-based encryption that is as strong as AES. There is some analysis that is possible without the user having a way to get decrypted values.
