Beginners Guide to Encryption and Key Management (and Encryptionizer)
To Encrypt or Not Encrypt
Encryption protects our data. It keeps it secure whether it’s “at-rest” – such as sitting on our computers or devices – or “in-transit” – wherever we are transmitting conversations from point A to point B over the Internet. Encryption renders the data useless if it inadvertently or maliciously falls into the wrong hands.
Our sensitive personal information and business data has become more critically important. So, to encrypt or not to encrypt is hardly the question. It is no longer a nice-to-have but a must-have for every business and organization. The real question is how do we protect our data from the bad guys and the dark web with cost effectiveness and simplicity?
Below we have presented a typical use case where encryption acts as a critical component to protecting sensitive information. In the case below we have used a healthcare organization as “the customer” looking to secure medical devices throughout their network as these serve as an important access point for communicating, sharing, collecting and analyzing medical data. They also represent a highly vulnerable security risk for these same reasons. They are a good example of existing applications that need to be protected whether it is due to HIPAA or GDPR. Simultaneously, we will demonstrate how Encryptionizer is used to help “the customer” achieve their goals of protecting your personal information. Encryptionizer can be used on any Windows Application, Server or Database, whether on the tablet, workstation, server or Cloud.
