Peak 10 now offers Encryption as a Service. Find out how it can benefit your company’s security posture.

Meeting the Demand for Encryption as a Service

In 2016, Peak 10 released our Encryption as a Service offering and conducted an Encryption Research Study to gain deeper insight into security concerns throughout various industries and how security teams are implementing encryption.

Among the many insights we collected from industry leaders, here are the main findings:

  • Nearly two-thirds of businesses are subject to HIPAA/HITECH, PCI DSS or other compliance mandates related to personally identifiable information (PII) or electronic protected health information ePHI, fueling the need to shore up security controls by using methods such as encryption.
  • Full-disk encryption is the most common encryption method used.
  • Less than half of businesses consider encryption to be very important to their organization.
  • Less than one-fifth of businesses are encrypting 75%-100% of their data.

After learning that so many organizations seem to underestimate the importance of encryption, and potentially misunderstand how to implement it correctly, Peak 10 has set out to evangelize the study findings and invite security teams who are interested in learning more about implementing encryption to have a conversation with us to figure out what can be changed for the better.
