Format Preserving Tokenization™
This industry leading tokenization model extends the encryption and key management capabilities of Liaison Protect by replacing sensitive data throughout the enterprise with data surrogates, or tokens. Tokens can be safely used by any application or database throughout an enterprise without risk of exposing sensitive data. When applications or databases require the clear-text value, they simply make a call to the Token Manager and present the token (as long as the request is valid and authentic). The Token Manager looks up the token in the data vault, identifies the appropriate cipher text, decrypts the value and presents it back to the database or application.
With Format Preserving Tokenization, tokens that maintain the length and format of the original data can be generated for all types of sensitive data. Social Security numbers, credit card data, National Insurance numbers, financial data, health records and other proprietary or personally identifiable information (PII). No data in the clear, no data at risk. No impact on existing systems and applications, no added costs.
