Protegrity Leads Discussions on Future of Tokenization at 2011 Teradata PARTNERS User Group Conference & Expo

Experts to Share Best Practices for Minimizing Cost and Complexity of Data Security Compliance in Wake of Major Breaches

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2011) - Teradata PARTNERS User Group Conference & Expo -- Protegrity USA, Inc. (BOOTH #201), a leading provider of end-to-end data security solutions, is a platinum sponsor at the Teradata PARTNERS User Group Conference & Expo in San Diego this week. Teradata and Protegrity have been strategic partners since 2004, and the Protegrity Data Security Platform (DSP) currently protects sensitive information like credit card and social security numbers, email addresses and electronic health records stored within Teradata systems for more 30 Teradata customers.

Protegrity Tokenization is increasingly popular among Teradata customers that have to comply with PCI-DSS and other data security regulations because it allows them to remove key security requirements from compliance scope and consequently drive down the costs associated with staying compliant. Protegrity's patented approach to tokenization creates a very small system footprint that makes it the most high-performance, cost-effective and secure tokenization solution available. Additional details about Protegrity's approach to tokenization are available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyfnt5mx1vs.
