Encrypting More, Spending Less

Presented by

Derek E. Brink, VP & Research Fellow for IT Security, Aberdeen Group

About this talk

The use of encryption to protect sensitive data – whether the data is at rest in back-end systems, in motion on the network, or in use at the endpoints – is anything but new, but a new research report from Aberdeen Group confirms that its application is growing ever more widespread, especially among companies with top performance. An overview of the benchmark report "Managing Encryption: The Keys to Your Success" will describe how companies with top performance at managing encryption currently support encryption in about 40% more applications than their counterparts, with about 11.5-times more encryption keys under management. Most importantly, they have done so at a significantly lower total cost: 10% less in absolute terms; 36% less in terms of average cost per encryption-enabled application; and 92% less in terms of average cost per key under management.
