MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's rapid-fire business environment, data is being transferred faster, and in more ways, than ever before. But along with the proliferation of business technology that makes data easier to transfer and easier to store virtually anywhere, such as laptops, USB flash drives, and smartphones, data breeches have also risen to epic proportions. In fact, according to the "Symantec State of Enterprise Security Report 2010," 75% of enterprises surveyed experienced some form of breach in 2009.
The obvious first line of defense is protecting the laptops and PCs employees use every day from hackers and nefarious programs. However, protecting the information a business relies on – regardless of where it's stored or how it's transferred – is imperative.
To achieve this type of protection, businesses can use encryption to turn sensitive files into cryptographically secure files that can be read only by designated parties. Because these types of files require a "key" in order to access them, encryption allows businesses to safely store and transmit data on any type of device.
By using encryption software for their enterprise data protection plans, businesses can deploy and manage multiple encryption applications from a single console, deploy encryption for new applications quickly, and achieve consistent and centralized policy enforcement, including key management.
