With data breaches on the rise, companies must remain vigilant in safeguarding their assets. Failure to stay in front of data threats will inevitably result in breaches, financial losses, and tarnished reputations.
For years, companies have focused on perimeter security to thwart the ever-increasing number of data threats. But now, with more than 50 percent of security breaches perpetrated internally, perimeter defenses are no longer sufficient for securing data.
Today, companies need to extend their data infrastructure across business units, partners, suppliers, customers, and a growing mobile workforce. The outsider is now an insider. Because of this, companies must adopt an enterprise data protection strategy in order to effectively protect data from the core to the edge of the enterprise, an end-to-end encryption solution across databases, applications, networks, and endpoint devices. The result is secure data at all times—at rest, in motion, and in use.
