The leading hardware encryption solution on the market, the Ingrian DataSecure® Platform, is used by Fortune 1000 companies as an enterprise-wide encryption solution to ensure utmost data privacy and scalability into future data types and compliance requirements.

Ingrian's encryption best practices are based on its customer install base of industry-leading companies.

DataSecure Platforms encrypt billions of transactions per day and are the highest performing hardware-based solution in the industry, enabling well over 100,000 crypto operations to be processed per second.

Today's security paradigm requires organizations to employ an end-to-end enterprise-wide strategy that encrypts business processes and has the flexibility to integrate with other application and security vendors. Understanding that encryption has become a strategic initiative for most companies, Ingrian is urging organizations to take a data-centric approach in determining the long term security model that will address the rapidly changing threat landscape.

"The market is driving vendors towards creating enterprise data privacy strategies. We hope to demystify much of the confusion around encryption and key management by providing tools for data discovery and proven methodologies based on real world implementations," said Howard.
