With Dynamic Data Masking

Efficiently De-Identify Sensitive Data and Reduce PCI DSS 3.0 Scope

For today’s IT teams, the time and effort it takes to comply with corporate security policies and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) continues to increase—but budgets, resources, and staffing do not. While tokenisation offers the potential to address a wide range of security and compliance objectives, traditional tokenisation tools have been far too costly and complex to deploy and manage.

Now, Vormetric offers a better way. Vormetric Tokenization with Dynamic Data Masking helps your security team address its compliance objectives while gaining breakthroughs in operational efficiency. With the product, you can remove databases from PCI DSS audit scope—and do so with minimal disruption and administrative overhead. Plus, by ensuring that you retain persistent security controls over your data, no matter where it resides, Vormetric Tokenization also enables your organisation to fully leverage cloud services, big data analytics, and outsourced environments.

Unlike other dynamic data masking tools, the Vormetric solution tokenises sensitive data at rest in databases. As a result, your organisation can establish comprehensive safeguards to protect sensitive records from insider abuse as well as from cyber attacks by criminals and nation-states. Further, the product’s dynamic data masking capabilities help you ensure authorised personnel can only access the portion of clear-text data they require to do their job.

Vormetric Tokenization Key Attributes

Vormetric Tokenization makes it easy to add format-preserving tokenisation capabilities to existing applications. The solution features the Vormetric Token Server, which is a virtual appliance for creating and managing tokens as well as enforcing policy for clear-text access. To add tokenisation and dynamic data masking services to your existing environment, applications can simply use REST API to call the Vormetric Token Server. Vormetric Tokenization offers these attributes:

  • Non-disruptive implementation. With the solution’s format-preserving tokenisation capabilities, you can restrict access to sensitive database fields without database customisation.
  • Streamlined application integration. The Vormetric solution streamlines all the application development efforts associated with implementing tokenisation and dynamic data masking in an enterprise.
  • Dynamic data masking. Administrators can establish policies to return a value that’s completely tokenised or dynamically mask parts of a field.
  • On-demand scalability. Vormetric Token Servers run as virtual appliances that can be added and removed to accommodate changing performance requirements.

Vormetric Tokenization is part of the Vormetric Data Security Platform, which means you can leverage a single platform for tokenisation, encryption, key management, and privileged user access control. As a result, you can employ the mix of technologies that’s optimally suited to your specific projects and use cases, while gaining the cost savings and operational benefits of working with solutions that can be uniformly managed.

 Technologies like tokenization reduce compliance scope by replacing sensitive data with a non-sensitive token that looks and acts like the original. This means you get data protection without the need to change your databases. Once sensitive data is replaced with the token, these systems are no longer subject to compliance, meaning a lot less work for IT and compliance teams.
