Nightfall is a data security vendor that integrates with our customers’ third party applications (Slack, Google Drive, Github, Jira etc) to, on a continuous real-time basis, scan all content being added to these applications for sensitive data.
For those in the security space or at C-level, you’ve likely seen a recommendation about how to manage encryption and corresponding keys. Or at least something about encryption needing further consideration. Chances are, if you’re reading this you have at least an interest in the topic and are researching relevant products.
I had the pleasure of being at an in-person event recently. Aside from the joy it brought me to simply see people for the three-dimensional beings they are, it was of course incredible to connect with the Information Security community once more. Interestingly, a topic came up in quite a few of my conversations with fellow delegates. And it was one that I wasn’t expecting: encryption. It was often amiable, but on a couple of occasions eyes would roll.
We are familiar with quantum computing; know that it enables devices to do computations at an utterly inconceivable rate. It facilitates incredible advancements in technology. Ironically, quantum systems can make modern impenetrable cryptography hackable within seconds. Currently, quantum computers pose a high threat to the cryptography that underlies the safety of crucial networks.
To get a better understanding of how RDP works, think of a remote-controlled toy car. The user presses buttons on the controller and makes the car move forward or backwards. He can do all that and control the car without actually contacting it; the same is the case while using RDP. This article shall help you become aware of RDP security encompassing threats, vulnerabilities and encryption practices.
PGP encryption (Pretty Good Encryption) is a data encryption program used to authenticate and provide cryptographic privacy for data transfers. PGP encryption is used to secure all forms of data and digital transmissions. It's capable of encrypting and decrypting: PGP is a quick-to-implement and cost-effective encryption method.
PKI stands for Public Key Infrastructure. It is the foundation of modern information security. PKI is a set of practices, policies, and technologies that protect sensitive data from unauthorised access or use. If you’re not using it yet, there are many reasons why you should be.
With work-from-home now the default mode in most industries, organisations and employees now have to access and transfer files across home networks and personal devices on a daily basis. Naturally businesses are concerned as leaked files can have serious financial and legal repercussions.
