Encryption Key Management

Maintain Full Control Over Your Organization’s Encryption Keys

Maintaining Control

As organizations shift more of their data and business processes to the cloud, data protection and key management become more complex. Furthermore, effective key management is essential for any encryption system.

Many organizations need to maintain full control over their encryption keys to comply with contractual requirements, regulatory mandates, and/or internal policies. The right key management solution will ensure that sensitive data is protected against theft or misuse while eliminating the risk that your company will lose access to its own data. PKWARE’s PK Protect Endpoint Manager (PEM) solution allows you to do just that. It discovers your sensitive data with a high level of accuracy and protects it through classification, and remediations like, encryption, and redaction wherever it resides and moves.
