Security challenges combined with eager cyber attackers have led enterprise data breaches to increase at an alarming pace. For example, last year in the second quarter alone there were 237 data breaches that exposed more than 175 million records worldwide—almost 2 million stolen records per day. Of all those stolen records, only one percent were encrypted and therefore useless to hackers.
While the value of encryption is understood, it can be an intimidating solution to implement and most companies struggle to use it effectively.
You can leverage encryption to help provide persistent data protection once you understand the key elements of a successful strategy.
