Enterprise customers can greatly reduce or eliminate their compliance exposure by using tokenization – the replacement of sensitive data with a token that has similar characteristics, but no value. Using tokens maintains the data relationships in application systems, eliminates sensitive data from production, test, and QA environments, and provides a much smaller target for data thieves. The use of tokenization by payment vendors can also greatly reduce the data protection responsibility of their merchant customers.

Alliance Token Manager is a complete implementation of tokenization including an independent and encrypted repository accessible by any authorized application in the Enterprise. It can be used by Enterprise customers and payment system vendors to provide a secure, scalable repository of tokens.
