On Tokenization: Determining if Tokenization Is the Right Solution
December 21, 2011 | POSTED BY ALEX PEZOLD IN PCI, TOKENIZATION
How do you know if Tokenization is the right data security solution for your environment? Depending on how sensitive data flows throughout your environment, integrating a tokenization solution may not be the right solution. For instance, tokenizing a very small environment does not make sense if point-to-point encryption can provide the necessary means for data protection. Conversely, tokenization can drastically reduce, if not eliminate, a majority of your environment from PCI Scope.
Determining if tokenization is the right solution for your environment and then determining the right tokenization solution provider are both critical to achieving the correct data security strategy. Experts at True are available to evaluate your cardholder data environment and help you make this determination.
