Crypto Goes Mainstream

    Richard Moulds explains how cryptography is converging with other security technologies, such as identity management systems and strong authentication, to lay a foundation for data and content security. With the distinction between inside and outside disappearing and remote users demanding access from anywhere and at anytime, organisations are turning to a more data-centric approach to security. And fundamental to this is the use of encryption.

    While cryptography has long been used to protect data in motion, it is now being applied to protect data at rest, in databases, file systems and storage devices. In addition, cryptography is expanding beyond privacy enforcement to establish the integrity of data and documents and to ensure the security of audit information, easing compliance.
