Sensitive data is everywhere—bank transactions, healthcare records, student information, credit card data, and more. Data not only lives in the data center, point-of-sale terminal, or trading workstation, it also travels beyond the controls of the IT department – whether transferred over the Internet or shipped by truck for archiving. Businesses and governments are responsible for protecting the privacy—and private data—of their customers, patients, citizens, employees, and business partners. This responsibility is now part of legislation, regulation, and industry rules. Increasingly, encryption is the means by which organizations meet this responsibility.
