Data-centric security solutions protect data assets themselves, rather than protecting the perimeter of a network in an attempt to protect the assets within that perimeter. Data-centric solutions should provide encryption and access control on information assets.
A data-centric solution that is also an overlay achieves the goals of data encryption and access control without requiring changes to applications on end-user devices or servers. The solution is literally overlaid onto an existing application network.
In addition to minimizing privilege misuse while not having to change applications or impact users, a data-centric overlay system confers additional benefits to organizations, such as:
- High-quality cryptography and centralized key management across applications
- A centralized approach for terminating data access across applications, either through manual or automated processes.
