Tokenization for IBM i (AS/400, iSeries)

Protect against data loss and simplify compliance with tokenization: 
Tokenization is a recognized data privacy strategy that replaces sensitive data with a token. The generated token maintains the original data characteristics but holds no value, reducing the risk associated sensitive data loss. 

Tokenization reduces risks associated to data loss

Replace sensitive data stored on your IBM i (AS/400, iSeries) database with a token value. If the files containing tokens are lost or stolen, the sensitive data is not compromised in any way.

Take servers out of scope for compliance with non-recoverable tokens

Generate non-recoverable tokens, (when the original data does not need to be recovered) using a separate token server and eliminate the need to store the original data in an encrypted format, usually taking the server out of scope for compliance.

Tokenization can help minimize the impact of regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA/HITECH , GLBA and individual state privacy laws.

Meets VISA encryption best practices:

Alliance Token Manager meets the technical recommendations set forth by Visa for tokenization implementations.

Create masked tokens

Supports the masking of tokens using the following options: Mask using the last 4 digits, the first 5 digits, the first 6 digits or mask using the first 2 and last 4 digits. This flexibility allows organizations to meet regulatory requirements that allow organizations to retain some parts of the original personally identifiable information.

Automatic Tokenization

The new Automatic Tokenization module makes it easy for IBM i system administrators to set up the tokenization of data without performing any developer tasks. A file is simply copied to a designated library, the fields or columns are selected for tokenization, and Automatic Tokenization replaces the sensitive data with replacement values. Over 20 different fields types are supported including credit card, date, zip code, social security number, address, and many others. The referential integrity of the DB2 database is maintained and data is usable by developers and users. Simple commands allow for the replication and automation of the tokenization process. 

NIST (National Institute of Standards & Technology) validated

Ensures key management used to encrypt data in the tokenization database will be compliant with NIST requirements.

Flexible licensing options

With flexible licensing options, including perpetual and subscription licensing, protecting sensitive data on the IBM i has never been easier or more affordable.
