How to handle masking when data is already tokenized outside delphix

Part of Delphix implementation, we have a application where PII fields are already tokenized using protegrity product and other applications are masked using Delphix. The challenge that I have is, SSN is masked in delphix using SM method where same SSN is masked in other application using tokenization. So, having 2 different SSNs for same customer, which is not practical is leading to issue. Is anyone come across similar issues or any solution available from Delphix front. Some more points to add here:

1. The tokenized fields are accessed between application through webservice, means when webservice call is made from downstream application then protegrity service is called, which detokenize and send the records to calling application.

2. Now, we are in journey of Delphix implementation, having 2 different kind of masking mechanisms is blocking the implementation.

Appreciate if anyone have some solutions or thoughts.

In database, the records have token key structure. When other application attempt to access this record, then it will call the webservice which in turn call protegrity and detokenize. Again this record will be tokenized while inserting into DB of other application.

 It means, protegrity product is deployed in every environment of an application. I have added below link to understand better.
