Encryption - your last line of cyber defense



What is data encryption and why is it your last line of cyber defense?


Data encryption is a security method where information (eg. a word doc) is encoded (locked) and can only be accessed or decrypted by a user with the correct encryption key.


If two-factor authentication is the castle's moat, AntiVirus the walls and complex passwords the drawbridge then encryption is our final defense - the castle's keep. If all else fails encryption will keep your data safe.


See our top 5 things you need to know about data encryption.


5. It outplays Ransomware

Encrypting your files prevents Ransomware attackers from making stolen data public as the data is locked and unreadable. This in turn prevents these criminals from attempting to extort money from you. You are no longer the victim.


4. Encryption has come a long way

The latest cloud-based tools now make it very easy and affordable to keep all your files encrypted, no matter where they are stored and how they are used. From $9 per month you can keep your files locked at all times.


3. You stay in control of your data

Choose when and how staff can access company files through advanced encryption techniques including only allowing access from within your cloud storage service, from within certain networks and from specific devices.


2. Stay compliant

In some cases, some types of information should be stored in encrypted format according to the guidelines of professional bodies and federal government legislation.


1. Its your last line of defense

In the event your data was obtained by unauthorised hackers, encryption would keep them from viewing your information. They would have the files but would be locked out.


Ultimately encryption allows you to achieve real peace of mind because you know your data is safely under lock and key even if the worst was to happen.
