Encryption Key Management

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 also 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.

Contingency Keys

Decrypt files that were encrypted by anyone in the organization, whether the files were passphrase-encrypted or encrypted for specific recipients.

Microsoft Double Key Encryption Integration

More Control over Secure Data

Some files need to be decrypted by anyone in the organization, whether the files were originally passphrase-encrypted or encrypted for specific recipients. No matter how they were encrypted, contingency keys can provide a safeguard to be sure that the organization’s important information does not risk becoming permanently inaccessible. PK Protect helps you manage every key your organization holds.
