JustGiving Selects Protegrity Vaultless Tokenization for PCI DSS Compliance

Push for Better PCI Data Security, Simplified Compliance Grows Stronger from Merchants and Banks

Stamford, CT – September 9, 2014 – Protegrity, the leading provider of data-centric enterprise data security solutions, today announced a new customer relationship with JustGiving, the world’s leading online fundraising platform. The relationship with JustGiving supports a broader trend towards tokenization technology adoption within the Payment Card Industry (PCI) and as a result, growing demand for the Protegrity Vaultless Tokenization (PVT) solution. [blockquote]“In the last six months, we’ve seen a major shift from encryption to tokenization technologies among merchants and the payment industry as a whole – in particular to PVT,” said Protegrity Chief Technology Officer and PCI SCC task force member, Ulf Mattsson. “The major drivers seem to be increased security, by removing sensitive data from systems and applications, and the resulting reduced PCI audit scope.”[/blockquote] PVT’s high transparency to existing systems and small technological footprint has also helped merchants gain PCI DSS compliance faster and with fewer issues. [blockquote]“We had strict requirements for our PCI DSS compliance project, including a limited timetable and minimal modifications. Protegrity Vaultless Tokenization provided an elegant solution to easily meet them all,” said Richard Atkinson, Chief Information Officer for JustGiving.[/blockquote] More banks are also pushing for broad adoption of tokenization technologies, in an effort to fill the security gaps left over from the planned migration to the Europay MasterCard Visa (EMV) smartcard standard. This includes “card-not-present” transactions and securing the data flow throughout the payment lifecycle. Protegrity is exhibiting PVT technology at the upcoming PCI SSC North American Community Meeting in Orlando, FL on Sept 9-11, 2014. Ulf Mattsson will also be in attendance, offering individual PCI DSS 3.0 compliance workshops for merchants at the Protegrity booth #420.
