DPS 5.1 offers strong payment card and identity data protection

Protegrity : 18 December, 2009  (New Product)
Integrated tokenisation from Protegrity provides protection for personally identifiable information and sensitive payment card data
Protegrity, a provider of data security management solutions, has announced the release of the Protegrity Data Protection System (DPS) 5.1, the newest version of Protegrity's award-winning comprehensive data protection platform.

The enhanced, integrated tokenisation solution included in DPS 5.1 provides strong protection for payment card data, personally identifiable information, and a range of other sensitive data. DPS tokenisation is available now, and it can be deployed with minimal changes to the target environment.

This advanced on-site solution gives customers the ability to leverage their current transaction processing services or choose a different transaction processor regardless of that service's tokenisation capabilities. It also reduces the inevitable risks resulting from outsourcing critical data security functions such as tokenisation.

DPS 5.1 was engineered to fully support enterprises in their drive to move forward to proactive risk-adjusted data security strategies. DPS 5.1 tokenisation complements the other data protection technologies that comprise the DPS platform, including strong encryption, to deliver an end-to-end data protection solution optimised for demanding enterprise requirements.

"We believe that using risk-adjusted methods to determine which technologies are best suited to particular types of data is the most effective way to enhance an organization's security profile and achieve the right balance between important business, operational, and security requirements," says Paul Giardina, Protegrity CEO. "DPS 5.1 demonstrates our commitment to supporting practical, business-process based data security solutions."

New and enhanced features in DPS 5.1 include:

• Transparent tokenisation: Eases deployment with database plug-ins and eliminates the need to alter applications for use with tokens. Transparent tokenisation generates a token and sends the original sensitive value to the token server automatically, with no need to utilize APIs or perform complex coding. Transparent tokenisation also increases data security while reducing data processing time and, depending on the environment, reducing the number of applications within PCI scope.

• Bulk tokenisation: Enables secure simultaneous batch processing of multiple data values and tokens, resulting in dramatically improved processing speed and enhanced information availability.

• Configurable tokens: Protegrity's tokenisation technology enables businesses to create custom token values for virtually any data protection need.

Tokenisation removes sensitive data from the information flow at the earliest possible point in the process, replacing it with a token that acts as an alias for the protected data. The encrypted original data is stored in a separate location and can be accessed only by authorized applications and users.

DPS 5.1 tokenisation further protects data by storing it in a security-hardened, high-availability server cluster that meets data protection security standards. The token servers scale to support very high demand environments. Built-in key rotation for the encrypted data values simplifies data security management chores.

Along with tokenisation, DPS 5.1 provides a complete set of data protection technologies including strong encryption, format controlling encryption, hashing, masking, and data monitoring to lock down sensitive data even in the most complex and demanding business environments.

Protegrity's highly flexible DPS platform enables all or any of these technologies to be deployed when and as needed, in accordance with businesses' unique risk profiles, enabling organizations to quickly address changes in data risk levels and new threat vectors.
