Overview

The SecurDPS data protection suite by comforte is a scalable, fault-tolerant enterprise data-centric security solution that protects sensitive data with minimal effort and little to no impact on existing applications. It helps organizations achieve end-to-end data protection, compliance with PCI DSS as well as other security regulations and standards such as GDPR, and a significant reduction in the impact and liability impact of data breaches.

comforte AG is an active member of the PCI Security Standards Council, adding its voice to the standards development process and collaborating with the growing community of more than 800 organizations to improve payment security worldwide, recommending new initiatives for consideration to the council, and sharing cross-sector experiences and best practices at the annual PCI Community Meetings.

The comforte solution features a patented tokenization algorithm that provides linearly scalable, high performance tokenization. The algorithm is stateless, vaultless, and collision-free. The tokenization table holds a large set of random numbers gathered during initialization of the system. Once started, the static tokenization table then loads fully into memory, so all tokenization operations occur purely in memory and on CPU, thus in real time, without any disk IO.
