Enterprise File Security For Data In Motion, Data At Rest And Data In Use

Posted by Ankur Panchbudhe on July 2 2015

In today’s hyper-connected mobile word, ensuring secure file sharing throughout and beyond the enterprise requires a paradigm shift on information security.

It is no longer adequate, reasonable or practical to invest resources in protecting physical devices. There are too many to keep track of (mobile devices outnumber people on earthand such devices are frequently upgraded, lost, stolen or otherwise cycled in and out of use.

Instead of protecting the device, IT teams should focus on securing the enterprise files created, stored and shared from users’ various endpoint devices.

Protecting data (not the device) is the most practical way for IT teams to ensure enterprise file security such that corporate information stays under the IT department’s control, even when it travels beyond the corporate network.

Posted by Ankur Panchbudhe on June 30 2015

If someone is intent on compromising your data, stopping them is very hard.

Savvy, malicious entities are always a step ahead of the latest cyber security technology. An innocuous mistake, such as connecting to an enterprise server via an unsecured Wi-Fi connection or leaving a laptop unattended at a cafe, could be all a motivated individual needs to gain access to your sensitive files.

While national cyber warfare programs, hackers and other nefarious groups often come to mind first when considering information security threats, it’s important to remember that most data leaks are not the result of rogue agents, but rather accidental insiders. Most data leaks are unintentional and the result of carelessness or ignorance.

6 Big Trends in the Enterprise File Security Market

Posted by Anand Kekre on June 18 2015

Today corporate information has no boundaries. The increase in workforce mobility, home offices, and now Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) trends have extended the corporate perimeter beyond the corporate network and corporate managed devices. Corporate information is heavily being accessed, used and shared by people using different devices (company-owned and BYOD) not only from within the (protected) corporate network but also on the move (over public networks like the Internet) – thus creating data leakage points that require a different approach to security and data loss prevention than the traditional perimeter-based approach. CIO/CISOs need to look beyond the traditional IT-centric approach and think about information-centric file security, where the security and user experience are on the same plane.

Posted by Ankur Panchbudhe on June 16 2015

Digital rights management (DRM), also known as information rights management (IRM), is essentially a tool to control how something is used.

While DRM takes many forms today, it has roots in the entertainment industry and the age when digital media was primarily sold and consumed via CD and DVD. Record companies place DRM on music CDs to prevent end users from making their own copies; films on DVD receive the same treatment, plus region encoding to control (to an extent) where in the world a film can be viewed.

How Vaultize Stacks Up Against Seclore in 9 Ways

Posted by Anand Kekre on June 11 2015

With the rise in regulation, privacy and confidentiality requirements, file security has become a major business requirement. Enterprise digital rights management (eDRM aka Enterprise Information Rights Management or IRM) forms a critical part of file security. Although enterprise rights management has been of immense value to CIO/CISO since last many years, the technology never really saw widespread corporate adoption and many enterprises have failed to implement it enterprise-wide because of the lack of end-user acceptance.

Enterprsie DRM implementation means a big investment for companies, not only financially, but also in terms of time, resources, disruption and the risk of failure. Hence it is not a type of investment that one can simply scrap if it doesn’t work out. As per the leading analyst Gartner, many organizations continue to misunderstand the enterprise rights management capabilities. With that in mind, here we compare Vaultize with Seclore on the basis of 9 key points to help organizations make the right decision.
