Enterprise Key Management - A Strategic Approach
As information security breaches continue to grow and regulatory compliance becomes increasingly mandatory, many organizations have switched their security effort to focus on data encryption. Whichever level organizations wish to encrypt data at – application, database, file or storage level, laptops and other storage media – there are proven technologies available to administrators. There are also a number of authentication and access control mechanisms that can be used ensuring only authorized users can encrypt and decrypt data; regardless of the implemented technique cryptographic keys form the foundation of the security solution. If these keys are compromised then the security of your encrypted data is likewise compromised. So what are the essential elements of an effective key management implementation? What criteria are important in selecting your solution? This white paper addresses these questions and provides insights into how your sensitive data can be securely encrypted.
