Tokenization is for all types of data. The AuricVault® service allows you to store up to 11,000 bytes of data, either plain ASCII or UTF-8 encoded characters.
The Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, which tracks private and privileged information losses, clearly indicates that Payment Cards, Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and Protected Health Information (PHI) are not the only types of sensitive data that could benefit from the safety and security that tokenization brings. Companies frequently have multiple silos of sensitive information that could be tokenized.
