As organizations increase their use of mobility and cloud computing, they’re finding it more complex than ever to create an effective security strategy and protect sensitive data. Users demand access to data no matter where it is, as new technologies expand the perimeter of the enterprise network. Organizations strive to keep this data out of the wrong hands, but the challenge to protect it is growing.
To address this challenge, organizations are employing storage encryption, which can be implemented at the disk level or at the file level. IT departments implement full-disk encryption (FDE) to scramble the contents of an entire physical disk. FDE protects data on a device until a user or administrator provides successful authentication. Alternatively, file encryption can safeguard data in individual files, decrypting the file and making it available for access and editing when a user authenticates his or her identity. The effective use of file encryption can prevent data breaches and help organizations achieve compliance with various laws and regulations.
