With data breaches widespread, no organisation can afford to be complacent, but most data losses are avoidable. Many of the breaches making headline news are caused by the loss or theft of laptops and other portable devices. To protect themselves from financial and reputational damage, encryption technologies can reduce risks by ensuring the information on such devices is secure when users are on the move. They can also add value by allowing the secure sharing of information among authorised users and by enabling more secure remote working.
How encryption can add value to your business
The use of encryption is no longer optional for many organisations. Certain new regulations demand its use while others provide a safe harbour so that organisations do not have to notify individuals in the event of a security breach-provided data was encrypted. Even those organisations that are not subject to such regulation should consider the use of encryption as best practice for protecting data on portable devices.
The complexities and cost of using encryption systems have been reduced considerably through the provision of centralised management, making the use of encryption viable for organisations of all sizes. Whether centrally managed on-premise or through a hosted service provider, full-disk encryption systems can shield organisations from data loss and help them achieve their security objectives.
