Securing Data-at-Rest in Files, Folders and Shares - White Paper
Organizations face threats ranging from privileged insiders abusing
their position, to malicious outsiders infiltrating a network or nation
states looking to steal IP. While attacks can have many goals, often
the target of these attacks is information that resides in files living
in a folder or on a network share.
The pervading assumption amongst security professionals is that
strengthening the network perimeter is sufficient to keep data
safe. Yet threats can appear in many forms and organizations
must think beyond the perimeter and protect the data at rest itself.
This white paper looks at data-at-rest encryption needs for information in files, folders, and shares. Read it if you want to learn:
