Protecting corporate data is increasingly important — and increasingly difficult.
Your data’s critical business value makes it an obvious target for attackers. Successful attacks can wreak massive damage to company finances and corporate image.
To protect your company’s database assets, there are security measures you should take today. These include encrypting data as it moves across your enterprise networks and as it sits at rest, in storage on database systems. Extra steps and precautions should be taken to carefully control access to this data.
