Voltage Security has combined encryption, tokenisation and data masking into its SecureData platform.

It claimed that the additions will enable the end-to-end protection of data in applications and databases and give customers a choice of protection options to simplify implementation, reduce PCI audit scope and lower costs.

Voltage SecureData's protection for all types of structured and unstructured data includes primary account numbers (PANs), Social Security Numbers (SSNs), national insurance numbers, driver's licence numbers, birth dates, files, images and other types of sensitive and private information.

As part of the Voltage end-to-end data protection platform, all of these capabilities are supported by a unified architecture that offers a single developer interface, centralised administration for system configuration, policy management and key management.

Mark Bower, vice president of product management at Voltage Security, said: “The addition of tokenisation and data masking allows customers to significantly reduce the likelihood of an expensive data breach while lowering overall PCI compliance costs, without adding to their IT administrative burden.

“Voltage can now meet the most common use cases for online and offline data protection, with true stateless key management.”
