As data breaches become more common and more severe, corporations and government agencies have begun to recognize that persistent, data-level encryption is the best way to safeguard their information. However, adding protection to existing applications can be challenging, especially for organizations with no prior experience in encryption.
PKWARE’s Smartcrypt Software Development Kit (SDK) is the ideal solution for organizations who need to incorporate strong encryption into their products or systems. The Smartcrypt SDK delivers high performance, cross-platform security that is easily embedded, insulating sensitive data from weaknesses in other systems that may handle the information.
The Smartcrypt SDK is available in all major programming languages, including C++, Java, and C#, and can be used to encrypt both structured and unstructured data. Changes to existing applications typically consist of two or three lines of code.
Smartcrypt for structured data
When adding Smartcrypt protection to applications that process structured data, only fields that contain sensitive information need to be encrypted. This approach streamlines the integration of the SDK and minimizes disruptions for developers and database administrators. Smartcrypt supports multiple options for preserving data length and formatting to ensure referential integrity across the database.
Smartcrypt for unstructured data
For applications that process sensitive information stored in files, the Smartcrypt SDK provides persistent encryption that prevents unauthorized access no matter where the data travels. Organizations can use the SDK to encrypt not only file contents, but file names and other metadata as well, helping to ensure that no sensitive information is exposed. Smartcrypt’s compression and archive management functionality, including the ability to create self-extracting ZIP files, delivers significant savings in time and computing resources.
Strong data protection has become a necessity. PKWARE's Smartcrypt SDK allows organizations to incorporate industry-leading encryption without losing focus on their own core business.
