The Data Protection Dilemma

Enterprises of every size and in every industry around the globe are producing more data than ever before. At the same time, there is a greater demand for access to this information.

From business intelligence and marketing teams, to partners and third party vendors, everyone wants their eyes on the data to reduce costs, improve efficiency, develop new products, optimize offerings, and to make smarter, data-driven business decisions. To meet these demands, data will need be produced in more places, stored in more places, processed in more places, and ultimately, shared and distributed to more places.

With organization’s sensitive data being stored, sliced and diced, and shared more than ever before, a way  has to be found to keep it safe, especially in cloud and multi-tenant environments. Users and approved processes need to be able to leverage the data that’s available, while ensuring any high-value, sensitive information, such as intellectual property, personally identifiable information, and company financials, remains on lock down wherever it resides.

Start by identifying where your most sensitive data assets reside in your on premises data centers and then move to your extended data center (cloud and virtual environments). Search your storage and file servers, applications, databases and virtual machines. Don’t overlook the traffic flowing across your network and between data centers. Once this data leaves the confines of your organization, you no longer have control over it. Next, encrypt it. The promise of data encryption is probably familiar territory for you. However, the technological capability to encrypt data at scale, and in a centralized way that does not disrupt the flow of business, is a reality with today’s enterprise ready solutions. And don’t forget the keys. By managing and storing your keys centrally, yet separate from the data, you can maintain ownership and control and streamline your encryption infrastructure for auditing and control.
