Government data encryption

Patented next generation government data encryption

Government departments are usually required to implement security based on guidelines consistent with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). NIST guidelines include implementing laptop encryption and access control.

NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-53 Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information System and Organizations

It is very common that departments rely on full disk encryption for data protection. However, it only protects at a physical level. For example, if the hard drive is removed, the data remains inaccessible. However, if the hard disk is powered on and a password is entered, there is no protection from unauthorized users or system administrators. Full disk encryption is not useful at all for protection of servers as they are always powered on and shared between users.

The better approach is to protect data at a folder level. In this case specific folders are encrypted with different keys. Only authorized users and applications can access the target folders and decrypt files. Randtronics DPM easyCipher can provide transparent file/folder encryption with access control for protection of sensitive data on laptops and servers. Multi-level policies can be created for different access levels for users and applications. Different users can share files on a server without exposing data to other unauthorized users. All file access events are Users and groups can be synchronized with Active Directory for automated policy updates. DPM easyCipher also provides full auditing on all file access events on protected files.

With Randtronics DPM easyCipher you get 3 solutions in one: File encryption, Access Control and Access Audit.

Letter from the CEO

Thank you for visiting the Randtronics website.

We make enterprise encryption easy.

Smart businesses already know that only encryption can reduce the attack surface and stop the hackers from stealing their sensitive data. A company that only uses encryption is more secure than a company with all other cyber security measures. Privacy standards such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR are all mandating in law the protection of the citizen’s personal data. Fines for breaches are huge. You won’t get fined if your firewall is hacked. You won’t get fined if you suffer a virus or ransomware attack. You WILL get fined if you lose ANY personal data pertaining to ANY citizen. The lowest common denominator is the DATA. Data that is “Encrypted” is out of the scope of the Law.

Whilst all understand the need to protect sensitive data holistically (such as NIST Cyber Security Framework or 12 prescriptive PCI DSS guidelines) their cyber security priorities are misguided to say easy aspects and not addressing “what happens” when these fail? Encryption of data is the only direct protection measure that renders data unreadable compared to upgrading firewalls or virus and malware, IPS, log monitoring, etc. I am saying you need all methods but unless you have implemented enterprise grade encryption you are still unprotected like driving a car without “seatbelts”. “Enterprise grade encryption” as a cyber measure is the “seat belt” that saves lives in car accidents. Industry experts predict a relentless continuation of data breaches this year and penetration testing have proven perimeter defense is easily penetrable.

Randtronics has taken the challenge to make encryption easy and is innovating in many areas. We have already reduced deployment effort to days, use familiar standard components so that less skilled people can deploy and maintain systems.
I welcome discussions via email or phone as through your feedback we will be challenged to continue to innovate to the point where businesses and users do not need to be intimidated when using encryption as the worlds most powerful tool to protect their sensitive data.

Experts predict data breaches will continue at relentless pace, let Randtronics secure your business with “Enterprise grade ubiquitous encryption technology”. Time is of the essence. Why not be pro-active? I invite you to let Randtronics and its global distributors and resellers assess and assist your business directly.

Yours sincerely,
