The information presented in this white paper discusses various approaches to cryptography and key management, and can be used as a starting point for developing an effective policy-based key management solution. Taking a proactive approach to data protection-planning, policies, and process-results in a smoother implementation and a positive return on investment. Unlike disparate, multi-vendor point solutions that can create limited "islands" of security, SafeNet's approach provides an integrated security platform with centralized policy management and reporting. This is ideal for seamless, cost-efficient management of encrypted data across databases, applications, networks, and endpoint devices. Centralized encryption and key management also provides a uniform and ubiquitous way of protecting data while reducing the cost and complexity associated with compliance and privacy requirements.
