Is Tokenization a Fad?

Yesterday, Protegrity CTO Ulf Mattsson published a blog entitled, “Is Tokenization just a Fad?” The post was his response to an unnamed “key executive” who recently posed that question. Mattsson’s ultimate premise was that tokenization is a powerful and useful weapon in the IT and InfoSec professionals’ arsenal, and that it is certainly not a fad. I agree with this. However, there was one glaring error in his response with which I take issue.
