NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2013) -
Noted infosec expert Elad Yoran and CEO of Vaultive, provider of persistent encryption gateways to retain ownership and control of cloud data. Yoran is a 20-year veteran of the cyber security industry, member of several technology boards including the FBI Information Technology Advisory Council (ITAC), the Cloud Security Alliance NY Metro chapter and the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Board for Command, Control and Interoperability for Advanced Data Analysis (CCICADA).
As President Obama and key officials worldwide weigh in on the disclosure of the formerly-classified PRISM program run by the NSA, many business leaders are concerned -- especially those that regularly electronically transmit highly-sensitive data (privileged information such as data protected by attorney-client privilege, information that falls under compliance regulations, intellectual property and other confidential data).
The only proven way that organizations can maintain ownership and control of their data stored and processed in the cloud is with encryption in use technology that encrypts data before it leaves the trusted network. Yoran is uniquely qualified to address the critical business questions that have come up as a result of PRISM's recent discovery: how organizations can ensure that all of their sensitive data is protected in light of these revelations about the government's surveillance programs. Without the key to "unlock" encrypted data, it is essentially useless gibberish -- and only the right encryption key can decrypt that data into useable information. As a result, properly encrypted data is useless to anyone without the right key -- even the government.
Yoran is available for phone interviews nationwide and in-person meetings in and around the New York Area. Yoran is also available to travel for select TV appearances as needed.
