Data Encryption

Every business needs to protect the data it collects, stores and shares with customers, partners, and colleagues. Encryption is a crucial layer of protection that can greatly reduce the risk of data breach.

What is data encryption?

Data encryption purpose is generally to make communication or exchange of data more secure. In simple terms, this means hiding information that cannot be read by a third party.

Encryptions provide assurance of data integrity. The ability of data encryption is to protect information thanks to algorithms which code and decode data with keys properly managed by authorized parties. In other words, encryption algorithms encode the contents of your files, making them unusable to any malicious actor attempting to access them. Only recipients with the appropriate key can view the files after encryption.

How encryption works? Process

Why use an encryption solution?

Companies are collecting and storing more and more data. Unfortunately, both personally identifiable data and confidential data are increasingly targeted by hackers. Therefore, it is important to encrypt data.  Encryption is particularly used for data exploitation purposes. This allows data to be secured in production, development, test, and training environments.

Encryption solutions are designed to help you simplify data security. You can easily meet auditor demands, compliance and harden your system to protect your organisations. Encryption is a leading source of automated security and compliance solutions for of systems platform like Windows, Linux, AIX, and IBM i.

The solution can take in charge the different types of data encryption: AES, DES, Triple DES, SSL, TLS, and RSA. Not all these algorithms are equal. Some are better suited than others to encrypt certain types of data. In addition, they can be efficient depending on the type of infrastructure.

Encryption solutions protect sensitive database fields using strong encryption algorithms of AES or TDES. You can encrypt credit card number, social security number, financial data, bank account number, health-related information, etc.

Tokenisation is also a process that facilitates encryption. Tokenisation involves replacing sensitive data with unique identification numbers. This data is then stored on a central server in encrypted form.

  • Reports and audits trails

    Produce detailed audit logs on all key management activities. The audit log entries can be displayed and printed using a variety of selection criteria, including date/time range, user, and audit type. Alert messages can also be sent.

  • Backup encryption

    Encrypts and saves to existing tape drives. It reduces disaster recovery costs since no special devices are required and saves disk space and time by not generating intermediate save files.

  • Key management

    Generates strong key values and controls access to keys by user profile, group profile and/or authorization lists.

  • Tokenization

    Centralizes key management and policies on a single server. It allows securing data elements by user profile, group profile and/or authorization lists.


Encryption meets regulations

The confidentiality of data is an ongoing concern. Many companies must be compliant in order to guarantee their customers a respect for their data.

The need to encrypt personal data is an essential subject to meet regulatory constraints such as the GDPR and PCI DSS.
