Massive data breaches are now spreading at an alarming rate. 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.
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. Contact us to get started today!
Use Cases for Data Encryption
Prevent Data Breaches
- Unwanted access – for data stored on active computers, shared workstations or network storage vulnerable to prying eyes
- Physical theft – for data stored on lost or stolen computers, laptops, external drives & USB sticks
Protection of Sensitive Information Against Threats
- Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
- Electronic Health Records (EHR)
- Credit card data
- Insurance & financial records
- Student information
- Client records & customer databases
- Proprietary information or trade secrets
- Chat histories
Compliance with Regulations
