STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) - Protegrity USA, Inc., an innovative leader in providing Data Security Management Solutions, today announced a ground-breaking tokenization enhancement to the upcoming release of the Protegrity Data Protection System (DPS) 5.2, the newest version of the Protegrity award-winning comprehensive data protection platform. Tokenization is the process of substituting sensitive data with replacement values that retain all the essential characteristics without compromising its security. Businesses are increasingly turning to tokenization to secure high risk data such as credit cards and social security numbers. Unfortunately, obstacles such as performance drains, data availability, scalability, collisions and increased management demands are marring their experiences with this promising technology. After two years of research and development, Protegrity has developed a solution by intelligently altering the traditional backend processes used in tokenization. This has resulted in a new patent-pending way to tokenize data which eliminates the challenges associated with standard centralized tokenization. Particularly in high volume operations, the usual way of generating tokens is prone to issues that impact the availability and performance of the data. From a security standpoint, it is critical to address the issue of collisions caused when tokenization solutions assign the same token to two separate pieces of data. Protegrity's next generation tokenization solution addresses all of these issues elegantly and intuitively. System performance, availability and scaling are enhanced, numeric and alpha tokens are generated to protect a wide range of high-risk data, key management is greatly simplified, and collisions are eliminated. "This revolutionary enhancement to the current tokenization model has been developed by Protegrity and demonstrates our commitment to providing cutting-edge technology to our protection of the enterprise data flow and B2B data security solutions," says Ulf Mattsson, Protegrity CTO. Protegrity will be announcing its new tokenization technology this week at the RSA Conference 2010. Please visit us at booth 1029 to learn more.
