Encryption

Protect the data you keep

 

Data breaches are on the rise. Confidential information and personal records are getting leaked, lost and stolen – from threats both virtual and physical. On top of pains from unwanted access to sensitive information, penalties have become more severe and more frequent for non-compliance with regulations on financial, medical and personal data. All of these incidents now critically demand effective data protection solutions.

 

No information security strategy is complete unless data is properly protected at the source where it is stored. Data encryption secures the confidentiality of sensitive data to address the risks of data leaks and data theft, while also ensuring regulatory compliance.

 

If you store sensitive data, encryption is essential.

Use Cases for Data Encryption

 

Protection of Sensitive Information Against Threats

  • Unwanted eyes – for data stored on an active computer, shared workstation or network storage vulnerable to prying eyes
  • Physical theft – for data stored on lost or stolen computers, laptops and USB sticks

Prevent Unintended Data Leaks

  • Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
  • Electronic Health Records (EHR)
  • Credit card data
  • Insurance and financial records
  • Student information
  • Client records and customer databases
  • Proprietary information or trade secrets
  • Emails
  • Chat histories

Compliance with Regulations

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS)
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
  • European Union Directive on Data Privacy
  • UK Data Protection Act


Painless Encryption with BestCrypt

 

BestCrypt by Jetico delivers speed, flexibility and confidentiality for anyone concerned with protecting sensitive information – from IT experts at large organizations handling trade secrets to people at home concerned with personal privacy.

 

Encryption doesn’t have to hurt. To protect stored data, strong encryption with BestCrypt is easy to use and light on your system.

Use BestCrypt Container Encryption to store selected files and folders on an active computer, shared workstation or network storage.
Encrypted containers work like virtual drives – intuitively easy with transparent use and access to files. Thanks to compatibility on different operating systems, BestCrypt container files may be moved to any computer or storage media, working seamlessly between Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

Use BestCrypt Container Encryption - Enterprise Edition for remote deployment of client software, monitoring and inventory of encrypted containers, centralized storage of keys and password recovery for emergency access to encrypted data.

Encryption Algorithms

 

BestCrypt by Jetico utilizes strong encryption algorithms (AES, Blowfish, Twofish, CAST and others) – each implemented with the largest possible key size defined in the algorithm's specification. In addition to Cipher Block Chaining (CBC), BestCrypt comes built with XTS and LRW encryption modes, which are more secure than other common modes like CBC.
