Voltage Security Inc., has extended its SecureData solution by adding tokenization and data masking capabilities to existing encryption functionality, enabling the end-to-end protection of data, such as credit card numbers, in applications and databases. When combined with the supplier's SecureMail and SecureFile products, the end-user can create an end-to-end data protection platform with a single developer interface, common policy framework and centralized stateless key management. Tokenization protects against data breaches by replacing primary account numbers (PANs) and other sensitive data with a different value, a "token." The PANs and matching tokens are stored in an encrypted database, and the organization uses the token, instead of the PAN, to process and record transactions within its own systems. If hackers gain access to those systems, they only receive meaningless tokens and are unable to sell or use customer information.
