Flexible encryption masking to secure sensitive and confidential information

 

CURRENT THREAT SCENARIO

Data breaches are on the rise from both internal and external threats. U.S. companies paid an average of $202 per exposed record in 2008, up from $197 in 2007 (per Ponemon Institute). The recent Heartland breach may have exposed over 100 million credit card numbers – the total cost could be staggering. As organizations seek to avoid these costs, protect their brands, eliminate breach risks and comply with industry mandates such as PCI DSS, they want solutions that obfuscate the data right at its source (database, file, application or backup storage) so that a breach becomes a non-event.
