The AuricVault® Service Story

July 5, 2019

On 1 March 2022 Auric Systems International and the AuricVault® service was acquired by TokenEx, Inc.

Appropriate Solutions, Inc. (formerly d/b/a Auric Systems International)  created the AuricVault® service to protect our client's sensitive information.

Auric's journey into tokenization started in 2007 when we were approached by a client who was already using our Trevance® payment application. This client, a well know software publisher of office suite products who competed with Microsoft in 2007, needed to keep credit card information in their environment for an extended period of time in order to fulfill an extended warranty marketing initiative. Their payment processor did not provide tokenization.

Auric created the PaymentVault™ application for storing tokenized credit card numbers as an add-on product to our Trevance® and CN!Express payment applications.  The PaymentVault™ product met the company's requirement of separating the credit card from the personally identifiable address information.

The PaymentVault™ application was used by many of Auric’s Trevance® and CN!Express payment application clients for tokenizing transactions with multiple payment processors. Auric eventually grew the stand-alone application into a web service providing clients the ability to store their tokenized credit cards off site.

Building on the success of the PaymentVault™ application, Auric Systems International developed and released the AuricVault® tokenization and storage service in 2014. this opened the tokenization service for general usage and extended its capabilities beyond credit cards.

The online market place was and continues to be under attack by cyber criminals bent on stealing sensitive information. The data being stolen is Financial, Identification and Access Data. The AuricVault® tokenization service is designed to secure all types of data.

Auric Systems International has tokenization clients in over 31 countries in a broad range of industries including aerospace, e-commerce, finance, healthcare, hospitality, mobile applications, and transportation.
