As discussed in a previous post, data breaches continue to be a growing concern for organizations in the healthcare industry. Health organizations are looking for a cost effective and reliable data security solution that can protect their data, ensure compliance, mitigate business risks and decrease IT administration costs. With the mobile nature of the healthcare work force coupled with the increasing popularity of Self Encryption Drives (SEDs), the need for a solution the can manage all devices in one centralized location becomes even more imperative.
When I attended the Gartner Security & Risk Management summit a couple of weeks ago, I attended a session about Encryption Planning Made Simple. It was a good look at some of the issues facing organizations today and the barriers to the adoption of data encryption solutions.
