New Report: Why Standard Encryption for Data Stored in the Cloud is Risky
MicroEncryption® secures sensitive files by hiding data elements replaced with tokens
August 27, 2018 - Colorado Springs, CO - Cybersecurity is a hot topic these days. The digital information stored on computers and in the cloud is the lifeblood of an organization and would be hackers know it. Eclypses™, a leader in the cybersecurity software industry, has created a free downloadable Executive Brief about how to protect the most sensitive information in an organization. "Securing Data with a Private Digital Vault" is available on their website at https://www.eclypses.com/resources/
Eclypses felt the need to educate companies that store data, particularly in the cloud, about how standard encryption techniques used by businesses today are open to hacking. The Brief reviews MicroEncryption® and how this method stops cyber criminals dead in their tracks.
Eclypses' MicroTokenization® replaces data elements with MicroTokens™, transforming data into random strings of characters that have no meaningful value to hackers while traversing the Internet. In storage, MicroEncryption adds another layer of security by removing the real data from its' existing location, relocating it, and then encrypting it, then scattering unrelated segments across multiple hard drives in multiple data centers.
Richard Marshall, former U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director of Global Cyber Security Management states, "Eclypses has cracked the code on how to property secure data that's both at rest and at motion. This has huge implications for companies of all sizes, in all industries."
The Cybersecurity Brief is available for download from the Eclypses website (www.eclypses.com) and contains information on:
- Why standard encryption techniques for data at rest in the cloud leaves files at risk
- How a private digital vault using MicroEncryption will stop successful cyber attacks
- Graphic overview of how MicroEncryption and the tokenization process "hides" and protects data, creating a new paradigm is security
