What is Tokenization?
What is Tokenization? Tokenization is a method to provide anonymization – the process in which sensitive/protected information are eliminated or manipulated with the purpose of hindering the possibility of reverting back to the original data. This involves removing all identifying data in order to create unlink-able data. Tokenzed data is not mathematically reversible. Tokenization is Data Security.
Tokenization is a vital factor in preparing for that next break-in. Thieves cannot steal what you do not have. Tokenization moves your vitally important sensitive personal and financial data out of your environment and into Auric’s PCI and HIPAA compliant hosting environment. Tokenization is the pinnacle of data protection technologies.
The physical and logical separation of payment and privacy information significantly reduces a company’s exposure to information theft. Well-tested, reliable, and flexible tokenization services are available today; there is no technical reason to delay implementation.
Auric has active tokenization clients in over fifteen countries in a broad range of industries from e-commerce, to aerospace, healthcare, Hospitality and mobile.
” Even when physical security is breached, firewalls are penetrated, tripwires are evaded and software-based security is circumvented, the combination of tokenization and cryptography provides a robust defense that can provide last-ditch salvation.”
