Infographic: Encryption crackability

What are the recommended RSA key sizes for protecting data? Here's a chart with estimations of how long it would take to break encryption methods.

The oft-repeated concern about adopting cloud services is the security and privacy of the data that you trust to cloud providers. Along with this are the questions that must be answered related to compliance and jurisdiction. This infographic about encryption keys and their relative strength is provided by CipherCloud, a company that has set its sights on meeting these challenges by providing the security controls that will make the cloud a more viable option.

CipherCloud offers encryption and tokenization technology that integrates specifically with various cloud platforms such as Gmail, Office 365, Salesforce, and others.

A post from a "guest contributor", no source attribution, and no explanation of the information provided in the infographic. 

What a useless post.

It's a goofy infographic that lacks a lot of context. I agree, it doesn't really make any sense in how the information is presented.

CipherCloud created an odd infographic and TechRepublic didn't explain it. Double fail.

Makes no sense. An RSA key takes 1100 years to break and can be done... three years ago? I don't get it.
