In need of a new encryption solution, the Agency evaluated and selected PKWARE, based on PKWARE’s ability to render information inaccessible to anyone but authorized users, whether the data is at rest or in transit.
PKWARE was especially well suited to address the agency’s biggest concern: securing sensitive data that was being emailed by agency employees, either to other employees or to outside parties. PKWARE’s ability to support multiple encryption standards, including PKI, gave the agency confidence that it could maintain compliance with increasingly rigorous federal data security requirements.
In addition to installing the application on more than 50,000 end user devices, the agency implemented PKWARE on its mainframe and more than 100 departmental servers to ensure the security of the information it collected, processed, and stored.
Further, the agency gained full administrative control over data encryption by its employees, including the ability to apply policy keys for audit, forensics, and emergency access to all encrypted data.
PKWARE provided a unified solution to multiple data security concerns, fulfilling every one of the agency’s requirements for data encryption. With PKWARE installed on its mainframe, servers, and end user computers, the agency is able to ensure compliance with all federal data security regulations.
PKWARE serves as a vital component of the agency’s standard operating environment. As the agency works to enhance its data security even further, it continues to expand its PKWARE usage and install base.
