Securing Cloud environments: Five Data Encryption best practices to help reduce your risk

From the perspectives of both data protection and regulatory compliance, it is just as critical to protect sensitive cloud-based data as it is on-premises data. One way to do this is through data encryption, yet many business’s encryption efforts are mired in fragmented approaches, siloed strategies for policy management and compliance reporting, and decentralized key management. These situations have all contributed to making encryption complicated and difficult to implement and manage.

This paper looks at 5 best practices for securing data in multi-cloud environments using the latest data encryption technologies.

HPCC Systems: The End-to-End Data Lake Management Solution

Today, most organizations recognize that data is key to the ability to innovate and remain competitive in a rapidly changing business landscape. A key challenge: That’s largely because it’s difficult, time-consuming and often expensive to add new data and access paths to relational data stores. The problem is becoming increasingly acute as businesses use more unstructured information that relational databases simply weren’t designed to handle, such as data from Internet of Things devices, the Web, and social media.

To overcome this challenge, many organizations — including some of the world’s largest companies — are successfully using a proven alternative approach: a data lake. Data lakes support datasets that are extremely large, complex and diverse, and they easily accommodate new data sources such as IoT. They allow IT groups to quickly create new applications that support changing business needs, unlocking the power of complex data for all users within the organization. They also scale much more easily and cost-effectively than relational databases. As a result, data lakes enable greater responsiveness to business groups and external customers, reduced costs, and greater scalability.

As datasets become larger and more complex, it’s impossible to quickly respond to changing business needs using traditional relational data store such as data warehouse.
