Protegrity Extends HP NonStop Server Support to Include Data Security Tokenization

Data Security Vendor Will Make Next Generation Tokenization Available to Enterprises Using HP High Availability Servers

STAMFORD, CT -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/12 -- Protegrity USA, Inc., a leading provider of end-to-end data security solutions, announces further support for HP's family of Integrity NonStop Servers, the mainstay of large-scale enterprises used across virtually every business sector. By combining Protegrity's patented tokenization technology with HP's highly available and scalable NonStop technology, enterprises will have ready access to this advanced, cost-effective protection for highly-sensitive data.

"Security breaches, along with the lawsuits and brand damage that accompany them, must be avoided at all costs. PCI compliance is a good start, but organizations are recognizing they must protect the widening range of personal, financial, and health data they have using methods that go far beyond basic passwords and access controls," said Suni Munshani, CEO of Protegrity. "By providing tokenization for this HP platform, we are helping to ensure enterprises won't be faced with the same humiliating situations encountered by Sony, Epsilon, Stratfor and Zappos."

HP Integrity NonStop systems provide 24/7/365 application availability for critical and complex enterprise applications. These systems are used by financial institutions, mobile operators, global manufacturing companies, hospitals and other private and public sector organizations grappling with increasing regulations such as PCI-DSS, along with emerging regulations targeted at personally identifiable information (PII) and personal health information (PHI).

Protegrity's patent-pending tokenization technology enables organizations to store high-risk data by replacing sensitive information with tokens that hold no value to anyone gaining unauthorized access to that data. The data replacement process uses random values, rendering it far more secure than predictable encryption keys and algorithms, which may be vulnerable to brute force attacks. Because tokens resemble the original data, there is no maintenance or conversion costs when securing data within applications or corporate databases. Protegrity's unique architecture is specifically designed to support high-performance, high availability environments, delivering the industry's fastest token creation (200,000 or more tokens per second) along with fast recovery of the original data when needed.

Protegrity Tokenization for HP NonStop will be available at the end of Q1 2012. For information, please call (203) 326-7200 or visit www.protegrity.com.
