Zero Trust Data Security

In the world of cybersecurity, we talk about a lot of capabilities and tools.  But if we think about what the hackers want, it’s our data.  Why do we focus so much time and effort on the network and endpoint, but not the data?

I get it, data security is hard (or at least it was).  Discovering, classifying, and securing data has always been a challenge for organizations.  We inherently trust people; therefore, we give them full access to read, write, and even copy data to various locations and systems inside and outside the organization.  Then we try to discover where the data is to classify and secure it with antiquated rules.

But what if we treated data with zero-trust?  Yes, the term zero-trust is sometimes overused or misused.  But in the case of data, what if we didn’t fully trust people to read, write, or even copy data?  That means regardless of the data location, you’d need to be trusted to access it and the data needs to always be secured.  That means hackers, who aren’t trusted, could not read, write, or even copy your data.  Wouldn’t that change the way we secure data forever?  Easier said than done, right? 

Wrong, that’s where SecureCircle comes in.  SecureCircle is the world’s first data-centric, always-on data security solution. SecureCircle controls access and prevents data breaches by persistently and transparently securing data regardless of where it is created, consumed, stored, or modified.  SecureCircle secures any file type or file extension, any file size, including source code.  By leveraging a zero-trust data security approach, SecureCircle provides the following benefits:

  • Security that follows your data, in transit, at rest, and even in use, no matter where it is created, consumed, stored, or modified.
  • Control that is never compromised while enabling access.
  • Tracking of every action that happens to data; everything is an auditable event.

By having full control of your data you don’t need to rely on users to make security decisions.
