Data breaches continue to cost businesses big money - and not just legal costs, fines and lost business. The huge, recent Target incident has proven that a large breach can impact the stock price and ongoing trade over time and endanger the careers of the C-level executives at the helm.
So, despite available technologies, data continues to be lost. Sometimes it’s a matter of the lost laptop with Social Security numbers or other personally identifiable information. In other cases, we ‘re talking about racks of drives being lost to carefully planned theft, or loads of critical info left on drives that were disposed of improperly.
But there ARE solutions - solutions that now are widely available, easy to implement and basically foolproof. For many instances of data breach, this solution is the self-encrypting drive, or SED. These drives, based on industries standards developed by TCG and implemented by almost all storage vendors, provide instant, on-the-fly, transparent encryption. Users cannot turn it off, and it does not impact system performance. SEDs are available as traditional hard disk drives, in enterprise and client SSDs and in enterprise-class storage solutions for data centers.
Join experts from Samsung, Seagate and WinMagic as we look at the key concepts of SEDs, performance and implementation and the role of SEDs in enterprise data protection. See how companies are using them and tips for a successful deployment that can protect data all the time and allow for the instant erasure or re-purposing of drives easily and effectively.
