Nearly $2 billion worldwide commercial information and business insight company, with business credit and company data solutions.
The company received trade files from customers daily, containing sensitive Card Holder Data (CHD), making them subject to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) regulations.
Files containing CHD were received by their mainframe and then distributed to multiple, heterogeneous databases for analysis and use. All CHD in the company systems required protection.
Protegrity created a secure staging environment outside of the mainframe where the customer files would land. The token server inside the environment tokenized CHD within the files before sending them to the mainframe.
Due to the complex IT environment, a custom solution was needed to convert the massive amount of legacy data into tokens. Files were fed back through the inbound token server, and then placed back in their original databases tokenized.
