Why encrypt your data?
Encryption is used to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, authentication and non-repudiation of data, both at rest and in motion. In layman’s terms, it ensures that your data remains secret, that nobody has tampered with it, that it was sent to the right person in the right order and that you can prove who sent it.
In the past it was often incorrectly assumed that data was somehow protected when sent along dedicated optical fiber networks (aka dark fibers), as the assumption was that these could not be tapped. Or that MPLS networks would protect data through virtual segmentation of the different users. Such assumptions have been proven blatantly false time and again.
Encryption represents the best line of defense against data breaches – ensuring that the data itself is rendered useless if it falls into unauthorized hands. In fact, encryption is increasingly mandated by new data protection rules. However, not all encryption solutions are created equal.
Why choose dedicated appliances over other solutions?
As a matter of fact, purpose-built and dedicated encryptors constitute the best solution for securing your data across your network. They come without dependencies and keep their focus sharply on their sole task, thus operating as efficiently as possible. As well as providing clear benefits in performance and security, dedicated encryption appliances also have a positive mid- and long-term impact on flexibility and cost, offering a lower total cost of ownership over the lifetime of the product.
In this recorded webinar, you will find out more about these solutions, which will assure robust long-term data security to your company.
