How tokenization makes data usable without sacrificing privacy

Tokenization, sometimes referred to as pseudonymization or surrogate replacement, is widely used in industries like finance and healthcare to help reduce the use of data in use, compliance scope, and minimize sensitive data being exposed to systems that do not need it. With Cloud DLP, customers can perform tokenization at scale with minimal setup.
