Whether your organization stores sensitive data in a physical data centre, a private or public cloud, or in a third-party storage application, proper encryption and key management are critical to ensure that data is well protected.
This can be achieved by developing and implementing an enterprise-wide encryption strategy to protect your most valuable data.
Put simply, this holistic strategic approach involves deploying a data security platform that identifies and protects sensitive data, no matter where it resides. And it does this using a set of data protection mechanisms and centralized policy and key management—ensuring only people with a business “need to know” will have access.
In other words, your organization’s most sensitive data—including personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI) and more—is flowing everywhere.
If any of this data were to fall into the wrong hands, it could deal a fatal blow to all parties concerned.
This is where an encrypt-everything strategy comes in.
