nuBridges has released a new version of Protect Token Manager, a format preserving tokenization offering for data security that augments encryption key management control, supports enterprise integration with LDAP and includes various enhancements that make data-centric information security initiatives even easier to implement and maintain.
The company said that the Protect Token Manager is part of nuBridges Protect, a data security software offering to combine a new variation of tokenization, Format Preserving Tokenization, with encryption, centraliased encryption key management and logging in one platform-agnostic software package.
The new offering is designed for organisations that need to protect volumes of personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI), as well as payment card numbers, from theft and accidental loss while reducing complexity and simplifying compliance management for data security standards and privacy laws, the company claims.
According to nuBridges, the new Protect Token Manager Release 1.3 includes developments such as granular control over the encryption key lifecycle and consistency with the evolving OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) standards; pre-configured templates for easier protection of international PII such as UK national insurance numbers and Canadian social insurance numbers; enhanced surveillance of client, user and administrative activities; and LDAP integration support for role-based administration and web-services governance.
Gary Palgon, vice president of product management at nuBridges, said: “Our introduction of nuBridges Protect Token Manager last April was met with enthusiasm and excitement by data security professionals who recognize the role that protecting PII and PHI, as well as cardholder information, plays in reducing organizational risk.
“We are fully engaged with this new, vital data protection technology and are committed to advancing it aggressively to simplify and lower the cost of data protection and compliance, and stay ahead of the evolving threat landscape.”
