Unstructured Data Protection

Protect sensitive data in files and storage

Encryption Solutions for Unstructured Data

It is estimated that 80 to 90 percent of an organization’s data is unstructured – text files, photos, video, audio recordings, presentations, email threads, instant messenger conversations, web pages, and other sensitive business documents.

In the wrong hands, this information could expose merger and acquisition plans, competitive intelligence, proprietary research, customer information, and other confidential data.

"StorageSecure started with the successful DataFort security product that we had. As we looked at the lifecycle of that product, we looked for a partner who could take it to the next level – higher speeds, new feature sets. SafeNet’s depth in security and line-speed encryption success led us to SafeNet."

– Tim Russell, VP Data Lifecycle Solutions, NetApp

With SafeNet’s portfolio of NAS and file encryption solutions, organizations can retain control of their unstructured data. Sensitive data remains protected as it is accessed, shared, and stored beyond the traditional datacenter.

SafeNet is one of the only storage encryption vendors to provide granular administrative controls so that organizations can encrypt only the file or folders that need protection, control who in the organization has access to files, and manage all encryption keys in one central location with SafeNet KeySecure.

Energy and petrochemical companies manage vast amounts of sensitive data, and as news reports continue to make clear, these assets are too often exposed to compromise. For criminal organizations, nation-states, and malicious insiders, storage systems in energy and petrochemical companies represent a prime target—a central repository that can hold copies of virtually all sensitive files, including seismic images, financial and legal records, and other critical intellectual property.
