Prime Factors Adds Tokenization to Security Offering

Aug. 1, 2011

Prime Factors, Inc. has added tokenization to the EncryptRIGHT product suite. The Eugene, Ore.-based data security firm said tokenization, which substitutes a surrogate value for sensitive payment information without changing existing applications, protects sensitive data that businesses rely upon. The company said EncryptRIGHT supports two methods of token generation: random tokenization and tokenization by encryption. “When combined with data encryption and key management features, EncryptRIGHT now offers a superior way to achieve compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS or PCI),” said Prime Factors President Patrick Riley. “EncryptRIGHT tokenization offers excellent security while reducing audit requirements and cutting the cost of a PCI audit.”
