Tokenization

Keeping sensitive information secure while enabling business processes

Data security is crucial to any industry that deals with online transactions and communication (for example, through IoT devices). With every exchange of information, the risk associated when transferring sensitive data back and forth becomes multiplied. However, a security solution for this requirement should not hinder any business processes or operations.

A solution to this problem is tokenization. With a tokenization solution in place, data can be shared without exposing sensitive information. Here’s how tokenization works:

Tokenization turns sensitive data into non-sensitive tokens with the use of cryptographic algorithms. These tokens are an unrecognizable string of characters that are rendered unusable without the tokenization system in place and, if stolen, provide no value to cybercriminals.

Benefits

By using tokenization, companies benefit from:

Maximum Security & Compliance

  • Enables secure sharing of information to maintain business processes, without exposing any sensitive information
  • Secure data exchange to IoT devices, 3rd party providers, and data analytics platforms 
  • Protects any structured data set, including personally identifiable information, for comprehensive privacy compliance. 
  • Securely manages and stores keys and sensitive data in a single, centralized location.
  • Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is encrypted with different cryptographic algorithms
  • Meets compliance requirements with all relevant industry standards including Payment Card Industry standards (PCI DSS) and GDPR
  • Provides random tokens, based on a true hardware-based, FIPS-certified Random Number Generator

Easy and flexible business process enablement

  • Flexible deployment with vault or vaultless based tokenization
  • Token inventory for easy crypto management
  • Tokens can be generated in a wide variety of predefined formats, or a specified custom token format
  • High Availability (HA) option, allowing multiple appliances to be integrated into a self-replicating network. Appliances may be separated geographically, allowing tokens issued by one appliance to be recovered on another.
  • For both token generation as well as de-tokenization.
  • Uses a simple JSON Schema with a RESTful API driven functionality
  • Configurable network settings enable access to shared network storage for secure file storage and access.
  • Allows for the addition of new HSMs (including HSMs from other manufacturers), as well as the ability to view and manage existing HSMs within the infrastructure.
  • Offers configurable automated daily backup functions.
