Tokenization vs. Encryption: what's the difference?

Tokenization v. Encryption



  • Tokenization replaces sensitive data with
    a randomized, non-sensitive substitute.

  • Tokenized data CANNOT be hacked. 
    PII is stripped from healthcare record;
    there's no valuable data to steal.


  • Encryption changes the data type & length
    making info unreadable in databases.

  • Encrypted data CAN be hackedHackers steal encryption key & intercept data either before or after it’s decrypted.

Genuine PHI is stripped from record & secured in Remote Token Vault
