Encryption solution providers play an important role in any enterprise’s security today. It has since been a key feature in many security suites as a measure of its efficiency as a technology. But, this does not mean that it has decreased in importance. In today’s business environment where phishing attacks and malware infringements are regular phenomena, quite a few companies conduct threat simulations, assuming the worst possible scenario to combat cybercrimes. Thus, employing encryption algorithms to understand such threats in tandem with standard cybersecurity measures to safeguard sensitive and private information may go a long way in protecting a company against unforeseen attacks. For the same, organizations can adopt methodologies such as homomorphic encryption, two-factor authentication, and tokenizations to encode the data that is either stored locally or moves through various networks. For instance, the homomorphic encryption method encodes data into ciphertext that can be analyzed and worked upon same as a plain text, making it easier for company’s employees to work upon it and difficult for hackers to decipher it. On the other hand, enterprises can also secure their in-house devices where the data is stored by cryptographically generating encrypted passwords for those digital systems. Similarly, in the hardware-based whole disk encryption technique, the symmetry encryption key is stored independently to the CPU thus removing the memory of the computer as a potential attack vector.
Apart from these encryption techniques, enterprises can also leverage technologies like AI, internet of things (IoT), and blockchain to not only identify the imposters but also alleviate the attacks and safeguard a business’s data.
In this edition of Enterprise Security Magazine, we bring you the top 10 Encryption Solution Providers of 2018. These companies have been selected by a distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, and analysts along with the editorial board of Enterprise Security Magazine for their unique approach toward data security and encryption.
