  2. 2. Data Security and ComplianceData security threats and related incidents, such as breaches, can be harmful to any organization. Private and confidentialinformation is sought after for profit, business advantage, malicious use, and both industrial and government espionage.Data breaches can negatively impact organizations in a variety of ways including increased costs, loss of brand reputationand revenue, inability to conduct business, and/or loss of ‘secrets.’ In order to protect private and confidential information,security teams are increasingly using encryption to significantly improve their defense-in-depth controls around thesedata assets and comply with regulations such as PCI DSS, HITECH Act, UK Data Protection Act, South Korea’s PersonalInformation Protection Act (PIPA), and more.Enterprise EncryptionThe most proven line of defense against data breaches is to protect the data itself with enterprise encryption. Acomprehensive enterprise encryption strategy includes the ability to protect both structured and unstructured datastores that can include database and file server files, documents, image scans, voice, and logs across a heterogeneousIT infrastructure. To gain maximum benefit from their encryption programs, security-conscious enterprises areleveraging intelligent encryption that uses access controls to ensure data is only decrypted for authorized requests.Vormetric Data Security – Enterprise Encryption, Key Management,and access controlVormetric Encryption, part of the Vormetric Data Security portfolio of products, is a comprehensive solution forkey management, enterprise encryption, and access control for data at rest across distributed systems– all of whichcan be managed from a centralized data security console. Vormetric Encryption is a proven high-performance solutionthat transparently integrates into Linux, UNIX, and Windows operating systems to protect data in physical, virtual,and cloud environments.
