Enabling business processes while data remains protected
In an organization, there are various processes that include entering, processing, and generating data via (software) applications. In addition, IoT devices are also increasingly used in a variety of use cases and industries, including smart manufacturing, supply chain, remote health care services, and smart cities.
Due to these developments and advancing use cases, data is transferred and processed between different endpoints – partially automatically. These volumes of moving data could contain sensitive and personal information that needs to be protected.
There are two main security mechanisms that help to protect this data:
- 1. Tokenization: By using tokenization, sensitive data is replaced with a non-sensitive token and can still be used for business processes and also shared with 3rd party solutions.
- 2. Encryption: By encrypting sensitive data, it is only accessible and readable for those users with the corresponding cryptographic keys.
Utimaco provides reliable solutions for both tokenization and data encryption.
