Voltage Security launches Voltage Secure Stateless Tokenization technology
Dec 31, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Voltage Security, a provider of data-centric encryption and key management, has announced the availability of Voltage Secure Stateless Tokenization, or SST, technology.
Voltage Secure Stateless Tokenization technology is an advanced data security solution that provides enterprises, merchants and payment processors with a new approach to help assure protection for payment card data, with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, audit scope reduction.
Voltage SST technology is offered as part of the Voltage SecureData Enterprise data security platform that unites encryption, tokenization, data masking and key management to protect sensitive corporate information in a single comprehensive solution. Voltage SST technology is deployed and in use with customers leading in payment card processing, retail, financial services and airline industries.
Voltage SST technology eliminates the need for a token database, which has been a central element in tokenization solutions. It also removes the need to store sensitive data. The end result is that it substantially decreases PCI DSS compliance costs and complexities, and dramatically reduces the number of applications and systems that would be considered 'in-scope' for compliance assessments.
By eliminating token databases and the need to store sensitive cardholder data, the Voltage SST solution also reduces risk of breach. "The SST method is truly a paradigm shift in PAN tokenization," says Kennet Westby, president of Coalfire, Inc., a independent IT Governance, Risk and Compliance firm. "Memory access is many thousands of times faster than disk access. By removing the database and practically eliminating disk I/O, performance is increased dramatically over conventional tokenization solutions. Typically, performance and security move in opposite directions, but not in this case. The overall security of the tokenization process is actually enhanced."
For transaction processors Voltage SST technology delivers a secure solution that meets carrier- and payment processor-grade high availability requirements. With Voltage SST technology there are no software prerequisites. The solution works with virtually all languages and platforms, easily integrating into existing IT environments, including mainframe and mid-range.
