WHY IS TOKENIZATION VALUABLE?
- Sensitive customer data stays within the bank’s control at all times. External systems have no access to the real data.
- Strong tokens have unique security strength because they are not “mathematically linked” to the original value they replace.
- When used as a security technique within a Cloud Data Control Gateway, the user of the cloud application has full use of the cloud's functionality, even though some of the data has been tokenized.
