Use an operating system agnostic approach
It is likely that your organization allows users to bring their own device, which means you will find a wide variety of systems that need protection. From Windows machines to Linux systems, it’s important that you protect each of them so that there are no holes in your network. To simplify your security management, avoid data protection mechanisms that run as applications within the operating system.
Advanced data security technologies, such as WinMagic SecureDoc Enterprise Server, ensure data security regardless of which operating system is used. By selecting SecureDoc as a pivotal element in your best practices data protection strategy, you’ll be able to easily integrate a variety of operating systems into your network environment - without compromising on data security.
Reduce total cost of ownership through automation and central management
Controlling access to sensitive corporate information requires a mix of security mechanisms: authenticating valid users, enforcing access controls, and managing encryption on endpoint devices. Manual provisioning and enforcement of these processes represent a substantial workload for IT staff members, particularly if permissions and access rights are being assigned across hundreds or thousands of servers involving tens of thousands of employees.
Piecemeal solutions (with a separate security approach for each platform) are generally inefficient and often fraught with risks because they are so difficult to administer and lack a central vantage point to monitor and assess real-time security status. Fragmented approaches also make it difficult to demonstrate compliance with data privacy regulations or to perform consistent audits.
WinMagic offers total platform management with a single-pane view that works with each operating system to make security management easier and more efficient. A centralized key management system protects your organization from human error, departmental inefficiencies and silos that may allow for unintended malicious access to your data.
Adapt policies to include emerging technologies
Technologies change rapidly and IT professionals need to stay on top of the latest developments to ensure that data security policies in use are still effective. As IT professionals become aware of emerging technologies that are directly or indirectly populating their infrastructure, data security policies should be amended to eliminate any possible avenues for data breaches.
With WinMagic and our single-pane view you can see devices and resources in use network-wide, making it simple to stay in front of emerging technologies.
