Data Protection and Encryption

The bottom line is that it is all about the data.  Cybercrime is related to many things including disrupting systems, defacing sites and information, but at the end of the day it is the data that is worth real money. 

While there is no perfect way to ensure data is protected at all times, Escalade IT has taken the time to research and address several of the key areas of data protection and encryption and have married these approaches very closely with our (DLP – data leakage prevention) strategy to look at data protection and encryption as part of a comprehensive enterprise DLP strategy.

Analysts and industry agree that an integral part of your data protection strategy is dealing with data At Rest, In Motion, and In Use.

Statistics and Facts on this area:

  • 52% of US companies experience data loss via USB last year
  • USB production will double from 1.4 billion in 2005 to 2.8 billion in 2011
  • 81% of laptops contain sensitive data
  • only 10% of all laptops are encrypted, while the average cost when a laptop containing sensitive information disappears is nearly $50,000.  Some larger breaches have cost $1-$7 million
