Data Segmentation

Data segmentation, sometimes called information segmentation, allows you to divide your information into different categories (segments). The AuricVault® service can tokenize and isolate a wide range of data with varying levels of sensitivity.

For example, suppose you use the service to store both credit card numbers and passwords. Giving a service access to passwords should not mean that service automatically has access to the credit card numbers as well. Or perhaps you are tokenizing passwords from two different websites. Segmentation allows you to categorize which tokens are associated with which web site. With segmentation, you can store tokenized credit card numbers in one segment and tokenized passwords with another segment.

You can also provide permissions based on that segmentation. This makes segmentation useful when sharing information with other companies or clients.
