Your browser identified itself as a version of IE that was often shipped with default settings that were less than secure. Your internet experience could be made more secure by opening Internet Options in your browser, going to the Advanced tab and looking under the security settings for "Use TLS 1.1" and "Use TLS 1.2". Ensure these are turned on (checked). Doing so will enable your browser to support a higher quality of encryption on this and other websites. You will still be able to browse this site without turning on support for TLS 1.1 and 1.2, but we will have to use a lower level of encryption to accomodate you. See this question on Stack Exchange's Superuser forum from 2011 for more details keeping in mind the comments about TLS 1.2 non-support were made many years ago, and things have changed since then.

If the support for better cryptography has been turned on for your browser, thank you, and you can safely ignore this advisory.

Flexible strategies to meet today’s data security challenges

Every year, organizations around the world face new security threats, stricter government regulations, and increased data storage requirements. These challenges can be difficult to meet without sacrificing operational efficiency or incurring unsustainable expenses. The diverse nature of enterprise information systems, in which data must travel across multiple platforms and operating systems, internally and externally, creates additional complexity.

PKWARE solutions are developed with these concerns in mind. Smartcrypt, SecureZIP, and our other innovative products help customers meet data management and security concerns, while saving valuable resources and maximizing their return on investment. Find out how PKWARE can help your organization succeed today and prepare for tomorrow.


DLP

ENABLE MORE EFFICIENT AND COMPLETE DLP PROCESSING WITH SMARTCRYPT

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is a critical element in today’s enterprise-level security strategies.

DLP processing allows organizations to identify potential threats arising from inappropriate use or inadequate protection, and take action before sensitive information ends up in the wrong hands. However, when employees or departments encrypt files without proper oversight, they can render the data inaccessible to DLP scanners, creating obstacles to efficiency and security.

Smartcrypt solves the DLP problem by including policy keys in every encryption operation, ensuring that data will be available for DLP processing and other critical functions without compromising the security of the encrypted files.

EMAIL

ARMOR SENSITIVE INFORMATION AS IT TRAVELS OUTSIDE THE ENTERPRISE

Email is an inherently insecure form of communication.

Though most email users never give it a thought, email messages pass through multiple unsecured systems on the way from sender to recipient, creating opportunities for sensitive information to be compromised in the process. Persistent data-level encryption is the only solution that can truly protect information as it travels outside the enterprise.

PKWARE’s Smartcrypt integrates naturally into existing workflows and provides end-to-end data encryption, ensuring your sensitive information is always protected both inside and outside your organization, even when sent via email.

CLOUD

MAINTAIN SECURITY IN THE CLOUD WHILE REDUCING DATA MANAGEMENT COSTS

Cloud-based services present complex security issues.

Moving data and applications off premise can provide a variety of benefits, but it can also create a vast potential for corporate data, customer information, and intellectual property to be stolen or misdirected. Cloud providers do not assume responsibility for keeping critical information secure, even though an enterprise essentially forfeits control of its data security when it moves business processes to the cloud.

Smartcrypt can help customers ensure the safety of their data, even in the cloud. Smartcrypt is the only data security solution that provides interoperability across all major operating systems and devices, making it ideal for large, complex organizations that use a combination of on premise infrastructure and cloud-based services. One solution, not several point products, handles structured and unstructured data for immediate access across the extended enterprise, regardless of platforms, applications and formats.

SaaS

ELIMINATE VULNERABILITIES IN AN INCREASINGLY COMPLEX ENVRIONMENT

New business models inevitably bring new challenges.

As corporate software-as-a-service (SaaS) menus continue to expand, security managers must make sure crucial data security protections are not being neglected amid increasingly challenging integration processes. The complexity of integrating onsite and remotely hosted assets often inspires administrators to take shortcuts. For example, instead of contracting outside experts to manage a company's cloud service lineup, IT staffers often insist on saving money with manual coding. This can expose the organization to opportunistic hackers and other threats for which the company is not prepared.

Data-level encryption is essential for reducing the inherent threats in a Saas-reliant environment. Data must be protected as it travels across the in-house network and through the cloud. PKWARE’s Smartcrypt protects data with persistent file-level security independent of system, application or data format, either at rest or in motion, rendering data unusable to anyone that does not have the key to decrypt it, even when lost or stolen.

BYOD

ENABLE MOBILE ACCESS WITHOUT SACRIFICING DATA SECURITY

The company cell phone is an endangered species.

As more organizations move to “bring your own device” (BYOD) policies for employee phones and other mobile devices, a new threat to data security has emerged. Employees often fail to install or update the appropriate security software on their devices, creating ample opportunity for data theft or compromise. Even when security policies are enforced across the general employee population, many companies feel compelled to make exceptions for top executives—the very employees who are most likely to be targeted by data thieves.

With Smartcrypt, organizations can immediately revoke access to protected information in the event that an employee’s mobile device is stolen or compromised, helping to minimize the effects of a data breach that otherwise could have had disastrous consequences. Smartcrypt’s innovative solution for key management ensures that other authorized users can still access the data, without the need to commit time and resources for re-encryption.

COMPLIANCE

MEET REGULATORY OBLIGATIONS AND KEEP YOUR COMPETITIVE EDGE

Compliance gets more complicated every year.

Businesses, healthcare providers, and government organizations must deal with stringent requirements that they gather, store, and transmit data securely. They must also focus on fending off determined intruders and breaches caused by careless or ill-intentioned employees. However, achieving the required degree of data protection is often difficult or impossible without sacrificing organizational efficiency or market competitiveness.

Smartcrypt empowers organizations to use data in ways that take advantage of new methods of doing business, and enables them to efficiently interact with partners, vendors and customers. Combining advanced encryption technology with an innovative approach to key management, Smartcrypt makes it easy to comply with government regulations and industry mandates.

MAINFRAME

REDUCE RESOURCE DEMANDS AND KEEP CRITICAL DATA SAFE

Big data often creates big headaches.

As enterprise datacenters grow larger and more critical to business success, the threats to customer information and intellectual property become more serious. At the same time, companies and government agencies are under pressure to reduce data security expenditures and other datacenter costs. Many organizations use non-native encryption software to protect their mainframe data; however, even for large organizations, these solutions are costly to maintain and don’t always meet the intended goal.

Smartcrypt and PKWARE’s other high-performance solutions help companies lower mainframe encryption costs by consuming significantly less CPU resources than non-native, Java and USS-based encryption solutions. PKWARE allows organizations to free up valuable mainframe and apply manage the data encryption process more easily and effectively.

KEY MANAGEMENT

APPLY SECURITY POLICIES ACROSS THE ENTERPRISE EASILY AND EFFECTIVELY

No one has solved the key management puzzle.

Until now. The challenges posed by encryption key management have prevented many organizations from adopting data-level encryption, despite the obvious benefits it provides. Traditional approaches to encryption, such as passphrases or public-key infrastructure, place too great a burden on security administrators and end users while failing to fully address enterprise-level security needs.

Smartkeys, the key management technology behind Smartcrypt, eliminates burdens for end users and administrators, making enterprise-wide encryption a reality. Encryption key generation, synchronization, exchange, and escrow are automated, leaving employees to focus on their work, and allowing security managers to ensure that encryption policies are applied across the entire organization.
