On July 9, 2015, the estimate of the number of stolen records had increased to 21.5 million. This included records of people who had undergone background checks, but who were not necessarily current or former government employees.
Corporate data breaches are not only big news, but they also come with big—and growing—price tags. The average cost of cleaning up and recovering from a data breach is now $3.79 million, up 23% over the last two years alone.
Blame increasingly sophisticated malware. Using more advanced and targeted tactics, today’s malware has a higher success rate. Add in the growing use of cloud services and the role that internal actors play in data loss—initiating nearly half of all breaches, many unintentionally—and it’s clear that simply trying to stop hackers from getting access to your traditional network isn’t enough.
Instead, an effective data protection strategy must combine strong encryption, data loss prevention, centralized management, and common security policies that govern the flow and use of data across all your environments from on-premises applications and endpoints to file servers and cloud applications.
Implement strong data protection technologies
With data protection technologies recognized as a leader by Gartner, we provide a full suite of data loss prevention, enterprise-grade encryption, native encryption, support for mobile encryption, and file and removable media protection.
Extend your data security
Widen data protection policies and enforcement to cover your entire IT footprint, including on-premises endpoints, file servers, and cloud services.
Make data unusable to outsiders
Lock down critical data with powerful enterprise-grade drive encryption or native encryption management on Windows and OS X systems. If a breach occurs, encryption technologies help to ensure that any data accessed is unusable to hackers.
Streamline data protection policies
Enable consistent policy deployment and enforcement, and robust reporting and incident workflow, all from a central security management platform.
