Data EncryptionThere is an incredible amount of information we can discuss when it comes to the security for your business. Let’s zone in on one here, and discuss why it is an item you shouldn’t overlook.

Let’s take a closer look at Data Encryption and why your company should have it. First, ask yourself the question:

Where is my data and how is it currently stored?”

If your employee’s take home laptops, use cellular phones for work, email confidential files, or utilize a server to view, send, or receive files, than each of these items or streams of information need to be secure. Believe it or not, there is an entire sub-culture of hackers that actively seek out valuable data 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For devices like laptops and mobile devices, you need to implement Disk and Device Encryption to keep your files safe. What happens when a laptop goes missing or gets stolen? What happens when a phone is hacked and confidential client information is now being sold to hackers around the globe? Instead of reacting to stolen confidential records, be proactive, and put a security plan in place. You may think that employee’s laptops are safe because they are password protected, but in reality, passwords can be cracked in minutes. When you encrypt your employee laptops, computers, and devices, a theft cannot read you data. Protect your valuable data with the first line of defense being encryption.

According to PGH Networks Partner Sophos Security, disk and device encryption is the absolute best defense against data lost that occurs from company devices that are either stolen or lost. As described by Sophos, “When data is encrypted, it is scrambled in unreadable format called cipher text, and only the person with the encryption key can unscramble it again.”
