Data security is one of the most pressing issues facing organizations today. Unauthorized access to personal information belonging to employees or customers—Social Security numbers, health records, financial information, even birth dates—can be devastating both to the individuals involved and the company holding the data.
One of the challenges for companies is that products aimed at securing their primary data often don’t work for data sets that are out of their direct control—backup and DR data are especially vulnerable. But encryption solutions can be complex, and can also have some negative implications to data protection strategies, including performance impact.
Capswhite recommends that IT departments include data encryption as part of their core protection strategy, and can help you integrate the technology easily and cost-effectively into your existing backup, recovery, and archive processes.
