    Data protection mandates in legislation like HIPAA and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act are making encryption more popular, but cryptography as a point solution is another story. Enterprises "aren't going out and searching for what product can solve everything out of the box," explains Adam K. Erickson, senior VP of worldwide sales and marketing for encryption middleware provider Eruces. "Rather, what they're tending to do is develop their own solutions in-house." . . . Data protection mandates in legislation like HIPAA and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act are making encryption more popular, but cryptography as a point solution is another story. Enterprises "aren't going out and searching for what product can solve everything out of the box," explains Adam K. Erickson, senior VP of worldwide sales and marketing for encryption middleware provider Eruces. "Rather, what they're tending to do is develop their own solutions in-house."

    But it takes time and skill to build encryption from scratch -- more than some companies can afford.

    Last month Eruces rolled out the platform-independent Encryption Framework for Enterprises, which leverages its patented Tricryption engine to create an abstraction layer, bridging applications requiring encryption with commonly used algorithms, libraries and toolkits on the market today. Expect other vendors to follow.
