CHARLOTTE, N.C. (June 22, 2016) – National IT infrastructure and cloud services provider, Peak 10, Inc., today announces the launch of its Encryption as a Service offering, providing businesses with a location-agnostic solution that encrypts workloads anywhere – a Peak 10 data center, the Peak 10 cloud, an onsite data center, a third party data center or hyperscaler cloud (such as AWS, Azure, etc.). Peak 10 will offer a one-hour webinar on Wednesday, June 22 at 1 p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT), where solutions engineers will discuss how Peak 10’s Encryption as a Service works.

According to a Peak 10 encryption study, 70 percent of respondents are expecting to increase or maintain their encryption budgets this year. Encryption as a Service will allow Peak 10 to continue meeting customer demand for secure, scalable solutions among the industry’s most robust suite of solutions.
“The massive volume of data involved in running a business today has led to an ever-increasing market demand for data security and encryption as our best line of defense,” said Greg Simmons, Product Line Manager for Peak 10. “This product was designed with simplicity and control in mind – it is easy to sign up, deploy, use and control with an SLA-backed availability of 99.999 percent. The service also enables businesses to enhance security to better align with regulatory mandates like PCI, DSS and HIPAA/HITECH, state breach laws, contractual obligations, and internal security and risk management policies.”
Cybercrime is a $400 billion global enterprise, and increasing daily. Working as a reliable last line of defense for protecting sensitive data, essentially scrambling information and rendering it inaccessible to those without the keys, encryption has become a critical tool for any organization’s security posture as large-scale hacks have crippled American businesses for weeks at a time. Peak 10’s Encryption as a Service allows businesses to protect critical customer and proprietary data, while retaining complete control over encryption keys, which means they retain control over who can decrypt data. Additionally, the solution offers privileged user controls and policies that dictate access to data as well as full audit logs.
Simmons adds, “As more data is collected through cloud-based, location-aware and constantly connected devices, CIOs are challenged to secure company and customer information and reduce the risk of breaches without losing the ability to comply with regulatory mandates, third-party contracts and other obligations. Encryption will be an effective and low-cost addition to our existing suite of higher-tier and secure storage solutions, and allow us to maintain our focus on high-transaction workloads and business-critical applications.”
With Encryption as a Service, customers can more fully leverage Peak 10’s services, allowing for seamless implementation of its solutions, including cloud, infrastructure, disaster recovery and object storage. These offerings allow customers to benefit from previously inaccessible business advantages, including faster to-market time, increased agility and a considerable reduction in costs. Additionally, Encryption as a Service is compatible with existing applications and appliances, giving customers full access to their encryption keys and data assets.
