Cybersecurity is complex because there are so many different types of solutions. In today’s world, cybersecurity is more crucial than ever. With the emergence and growth of technology, businesses need to have a reliant solution that can protect them from cyber attacks. 

What is Disk Encryption?

Disk encryption is a technology which uses disk encryption software or hardware to encrypt data that goes on a disk or disk volume. Disk encryption can protect against lost or stolen devices. However, it does not allow protection against human error, malware, ransomware, or hackers. This solution causes support issues due to compatibility between encryption software and OS or backup software. 

What is a Cloud Access Security Broker?

A Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) is a cloud-hosted software that serves as an intermediary between users and cloud service providers. CASBs have become a vital solution to enterprise security, allowing businesses to safely use the cloud while protecting sensitive corporate data. However, there are many downfalls to CASB which include no protection for files on local computers after downloading from cloud apps or any files created on the device. CASB potentially includes many one-time integrations with apps as well.

What is File Encryption?

File encryption protects individual files and file systems by encrypting them with a specific key, making them accessible only to the keyholder. Throughout the process, the file is still decrypted during use and is still vulnerable to human error, malware, and hackers. File encryption is also difficult to deploy due to having to manage encryption keys for all users. File encryption requires users' decisions in order to encrypt and decrypt when transferring files.

What is Information Rights Management?

Information Rights Management (IRM) is a form of IT security technology used to protect documents containing sensitive information from unauthorized access. There are many limitations when using IRM such as files are decrypted during use, permissions are not retractable, and it has restrictions on specific apps, file names, and file sizes. 

What is Data Loss Prevention?

Data loss prevention (DLP) solutions have been around for a long time. It is a set of tools and processes used to ensure that sensitive data is not lost, misused, or accessed by unauthorized users. As technology progresses, DLP struggles to keep up with the data protection needed for users today. When using DLP, data is only encrypted on egress and is still subject to malware, hackers, and insider threats. DLP permissions are not retractable and it is almost impossible to manage all egress points and devices. Another disadvantage to using this technology is that file access is not logged for alerts or auditing. 

What is User Behavior Analytics?

User behavior analytics (UBA) is the tracking, collecting and assessing of user data and activities using monitoring systems. There are many downfalls to UBA’s security coverage because files are not protected in any way and only alerts on user behavior. 

How is SecureCircle different from other security technologies?

SecureCircle delivers a SaaS-based cybersecurity service that extends Zero Trust security to data on the endpoint. SecureCircle protects data by default allowing end-users to operate without any obstacles. Data is protected at all times and is secured against breaches and insider threats.

Depending on the use case, SecureCircle can replace or work with other existing technologies. For example, SecureCIrcle is the only solution able to secure source code and intellectual property because SecureCircle doesn’t have any limitations to file type, file size, or application.

SecureCircle is the only Zero Trust DLP solution available. Zero Trust security extends to data on the endpoint. Data on the end user system is protected by default so there is no need to rely on complex measures to block exfiltration. SecureCircle leverages patented transparent encryption to keep data protected.

For many enterprises, legacy data security approaches have limited their ability to deliver security without impacting productivity. Read more how SecureCircle delivers data security that raises protection against existing and potential future threats, without compromising user experience or operational burden on IT and security professionals.

SecureCircle has customers worldwide in finance, manufacturing, source code, healthcare, education, government, and media. See a list of highlighted customers.
