Encryption, Key Management, and Consolidation in Today’s Data Center
In the midst of an ever-changing, ever-more dangerous threat landscape, insiders continue to inflict damage, and in virtualized and cloud environments, more privileged users can gain access sensitive data. In addition, external attacks and attackers are increasingly sophisticated in this evolving environment; data protection strategies become increasingly critical, and ever more challenging. This paper draws on an extensive survey to provide a look at how organizations worldwide are adapting their security to today’s environments. The paper reveals how organizations are prioritizing multi-layer data protection approaches, such as encryption and centralized key management, in order to establish critical security controls that address today’s security realities.
