    Enterprises traditionally spend a significant amount of their resources securing the network perimeter, despite the fact, noted by analysts and security experts, that a majority of attacks originate from within networks. Ingrian's product takes a different tack, allowing small sections of application or database information to be hidden from all unauthorised users, whether within or outside the network. . . . Enterprises traditionally spend a significant amount of their resources securing the network perimeter, despite the fact, noted by analysts and security experts, that a majority of attacks originate from within networks. Ingrian's product takes a different tack, allowing small sections of application or database information to be hidden from all unauthorised users, whether within or outside the network.

    Karim Toubba, vice president of product management and marketing, told ZDNet UK that large companies such as banks have a relatively small amount of data on their systems that absolutely needs to be secured, so it would be inefficient to encrypt everything. "In a typical bank, the amount of information that is a significant risk to the business is rarely over 1 percent of all the data. But it is that 1 percent that represents the maximum impact to the business if that information is stolen," he said.
