Inadequate key and certificate management undermines compliance
Insufficient resources make policy enforcement a considerable challenge
Manual management practices undermine policy enforcement at every level. Executives hand down policies to InfoSec teams, mandating the encryption of private data, without providing the tools and resources to do so. Without the benefit of those discovery capabilities, policy abstraction and corporate governance that an automated encryption management solution provides, organizations are limited in their ability to create, track, and ultimately report on policies. As a result, security policies are regularly ignored, let alone enforced.
Weak audit trails set organizations at risk of non-compliance
Increasingly, regulations are mandating that organizations ensure adherence to policies and provide proof of conformance. This is forcing many organizations to revisit their information security policies. Unfortunately, many organizations are finding that their existing policy frameworks are outdated and not aligned to their current business requirements. More importantly, they are finding that either they cannot prove enforcement or it is prohibitively expensive to do so.
