“Why is encryption software so horrid to use?” The long answer to that question is complex and diverse. The short answer is that encryption comes in two fundamental forms and one of the forms is actually easy to use – that form is “in transit” encryption, like SSL and VPN. The second form – encryption “at rest” – is a completely different story.
Privileged credential abuse has been traditionally difficult to detect and stop because data security is tightly integrated into applications and applications grant unrestricted access to privileged credential users, including access to sensitive data. Cord3 separates data security from applications. This separation of data security from applications enables two critical capabilities for protecting sensitive data against privileged credential abuse.
Traditionally, every application has implemented data security its own way, with its own policies, settings, and algorithms. The result is too complex and costly for users and administrators. And auditors, too.
You want consistency. Consistency gives you data governance you can manage and control. And audit.
Quantum computers are only projected to “completely break” public-key cryptography algorithms. Quantum computers are not projected to be able to compromise good symmetric cryptography algorithms, such as the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm used by Cord3 and many other encryption technologies, provided strong encryption keys are used.
Using strong, random symmetric keys means an attacker –even one using a quantum computer years from now –has to search through an incredibly large number of keys to be able to find the right one. Even the most powerful conventional computers and quantum computers conceivable would require many, many millions of years to find a key.
