Maintaining data confidentiality provides owning parties with business and operational advantages. Despite this fact, virtually every organization underutilizes encryption to protect their data and many are falling prey to malicious threat actors and careless individuals.
Within an organization, the primary issue for protecting data is that the most popular and common tools require different interfaces and separate policies to defend the data in its different states. The tools and management interfaces operate independently, with only loose integrations. The independence makes total cohesion and testing of policies and enforcement difficult and often leaves gaps in protection.
