Safeguarding confidential data that resides on computers is a major security challenge facing public and private organizations alike. We believe we have a good answer.

Today, confidential and sensitive data is left in the custody and care of an increasingly mobile workforce. Data production and storage is no longer limited to workstations; employees carry their laptops home and on the road, thereby physically exposing confidential data to loss or theft. Data residing on office computers is highly sensitive and may include unpublished research, source code, intellectual property, customers’ personal information, employee records and financial reports – all subject to theft and highly vulnerable to unauthorized access.

Huge potential fines for negligence

All organizations have a financial and legal interest in preventing unauthorized access to sensitive information. Considering that the costs of stolen or lost confidential data increase as state and federal governments pass breach disclosure laws, and that many of these laws require notification and remediation when personal data is lost or stolen, data breaches can result in millions of dollars in customer notification costs, noncompliance fines, possible lawsuits, and company reputation damage.

57% of corporate crimes linked to stolen laptops

Several polls and studies all point to increased incidences of sensitive data being lost or stolen from government organizations, academic institutions, and businesses. From FBI statistics in 2014, one out of ten laptops are lost or stolen.  In the period from 2011 to 2014, 5.500.000 laptops were stolen only in US. Further FBI reports that 57% of corporate crimes are linked to stolen laptops. It is evident that the laptop protection is one of the weakest part in the chain and data is at risk.

Hardware data encryption

A logical solution is to protect the data at its storage location. All data encryption products share the goal of encrypting plain text into a format that cannot be interpreted by unauthorized individuals. Encrypting all data on a diskprovides an effective barrier between unauthorized users and all data stored on the computer, including boot up system files and temporary files, files that can contain confidential data useful to attackers. No one can access any of the data on the drive until the encryption system has confirmed the user as authorized. The encrypted data has to be decrypted to its original form in order to be read.

Encryption is important for all industries

Eilif H. Johannesen is CEO of the Norwegian vendor Exportal AS. He has shared with us a rather extensive extract of his satisfaction with our encrypted memory sticks. As contracts- and tender specialist he often brings with him data that are extremely sensitive because the contract value often is in Billions of NOK, and also in terms of many of his client being publicly listed. Thus data encryption is vital before tenders, in the evaluation process, and also after. We share some extracts below:

«I have used memory sticks for many years, also some with software encryption. Lack of security have been a concern for me because it is very important that these data doesn’t get lost. I have never lost any data, but must admit that I sometimes have had some concerns about what happened if I misplaced my PC-bag or a memory stick was stolen. Sensitive data in the wrong hands can be very harmful, and I have myself restored data that originally was deleted. I think its fair to assume that many have feelings of false security around this”.

“I got my first CoCrypt memory stick in 2014 and have never looked back since. The big capacity has allowed me to replace the many others I used, and I am confident that my data are secure and protected at all times. In my industry I believe that there are many working with sensitive data that needs better protection, and they should start using CoCrypt or similar technology. Using a solution like CoCrypt is a “nobrainer”, and I wouldn’t hesitate to give my warmest recommendations”.
