Transparent data encryption – when, where and who does data encryption
WinMagic integrating existing technologies with new advanced solutions to deliver transparent data encryption, based on our 3WE approach, at the endpoint, before data is ever shared – which is the right way to reduce common security challenges, not simply the most convenient.
The 3WE Approach
Where… must data be encrypted?
WinMagic believes that the industry as whole does not adequately educate customers on WHERE data must be encrypted. We believe strongly that data should be encrypted EVERYWHERE, and even in memory.
WinMagic unifies and simplifies encryption across more devices and VMs than any other provider, helping you encrypt more of your data, with less effort and cost
When… should data be encrypted?
There is much debate among data security providers as to when data should be encrypted. At WinMagic, there is no debate. We believe that data must be encrypted at ALL times, except during those microseconds that it is being processing by the CPU.
By ensuring that data is always encrypted, businesses can focus on growing their business, rather than spending time evaluating data classification risks and applying random encryption policies.
Who… as few people as needed
While information sharing is often critical to the success of any business, it can also be a significant point of failure when it comes to data security. Too often organizations rely on encryption solutions that inadequately rely on shared passwords or PINs, or, provide too many users with Administrator Rights – just because it’s easy.
By using user-based keys, WinMagic provides businesses with the tools to ensure that only the user, any approved group users, approved enterprise admins, and any approved recipient ever have access to the data – providing greater security control at the data level.
