    Organizations, where in data remains constantly in transit within company networks or across other networks associated with the company’s network, should be aware of the inherent risks associated with the flow of sensitive and confidential corporate or non corporate data in and out of their networks.

    Despite of the fact that organizations regard data residing on internal storage mediums as ‘secure enough’, databases and flat files stored on networks or server drives are still vulnerable to unauthorized access anytime, albeit their immobility to outside the network.

    Over the past few years, it has been estimated that 80% of all corporate information is stored in digital form. Sensitive information, when stored in electronic form, can be susceptible to illegal access if organizations do little to protect data stored on their servers or on internal storage mediums.

    Employees, when at one point are an organization’s greatest asset, can prove to be one of its greatest vulnerabilities too. Both, intentional and unintentional data security incidences can be caused by employees of any organization.

    Employees who are the reason of unintentional compromises commit honest mistakes that might become a cause of business money loss, customer’s loss, or investors drop out. Using encryption to hide from organizational job roles the information not required for day to day activities is a good way to minimize exposure to employee activities.

    The data stored on tapes that travel from data centers to off-site storage are generally failed to be encrypted in most of the organizations, eventually causing an unauthorized release or leak of personal or corporate information that happens to be stored on unprotected storage mediums.

    Encrypting data in storage is the best solution to curb all the possible instances of data leak, information theft or loss.

    With more than 515 million records breached since January 2011 in the Unites States alone, leaving this kind of information and data open for access is a dangerous game, even for the well-versed of users. You need a complete End-to-End data protection and information security suite that works to protect your sensitive and personal data and content safe against any type of data breach efforts.

    Folder Lock is the ONLY data protection and online backup solution you need because it provides on-the-fly encryption for all your personal and confidential files at all times. With advanced government-level 256-bit AES encryption on your desktop and 128-bit encryption for all online communications, Folder Lock gives you End-to-End data security to protect all your data, thus, maintaining data confidentiality and integrity at all times.

    Folder Lock not only Locks your files but also encrypts them and stores them in encrypted storage files called Lockers. Now, with your personally identifiable information stored in protective lockers, even if the data is accessed hundreds of times a day, you will never get to worry about its leakage, loss or theft.  It’s better to take preventive measure to secure your important data than to take instant 11th hour measures when the data is lost!



    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
