ENTERPRISE ENCRYPTION
Many enterprises know that having point solutions for encryption scattered across the organization leads to inconsistency, inability to audit security posture, vulnerable key management, and introduces significant risk into the operations of any one application.

THE PROBLEM

How is a CISO supposed to gauge the overall risk to enterprise data, when hundreds of different applications are all using different methods to secure it, all with varying degree’s of effectiveness?

Standardizing encryption across the enterprise brings great benefit, both for risk assessment and consistent security controls, but it’s not easy. We have helped clients achieve this in the following ways:

  • Understand and assess the drivers for encryption across the enterprise

  • Identify use cases for encryption for various lines of business and applications

  • Develop a strategy for standardization

  • Develop a technical and economic migration plan

ENGAGEMENT

CHALLENGE

What’s the best solution for my enterprise to address standardization? I need to address the most data security need with the least amount of technology and resource investment.

OUR PROCESS

  • Understand, catalog, and synthesize the data security needs across your enterprise

  • Conduct discovery interviews with lines of business and application teams, understand incoming encryption requirements, future strategy, and other drivers

  • Map that to existing solutions — commercial and open source — to help you select the right solutions to evaluate

LEVEL OF EFFORT

  • Medium

  • An enterprise encryption assessment is typically not a long engagement, but gives you highly actionable information upon which you can build effective security strategy

  • Map that to existing solutions — commercial and open source — to help you select the right solutions to evaluate

OUTCOMES

  • Reduce licensing and maintenance spend by over 25% by reducing duplicate technologies

  • Comprehensive understanding of encryption demand within your enterprise

  • Catalog use cases and applications requiring encryption

  • Map of potential solutions that deliver high value to address data security needs in a consistent way across your enterprise
