Echoworx White Paper Showcases Cloud-Based Credential Management Services and Encryption- Security measures for Internet or cloud services fall short in securing corporate data - 20 to 25 per cent of portable devices are lost or stolen putting data at risk. - Centralized credential management a simple answer to a complex issue (February 23, 2012)
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/23/12 -- Echoworx, a leader in credential management and managed encryption services for complete email and data protection, has released a new white paper and video which showcases how organizations can now tap into the cloud for credential management services and encryption. The paper, authored by Chris Peel discusses the need for built-in credential management and encryption directly into mobile and web apps.
With the proliferation in mobile devices and "roaming" networks however, an increasing number of users are accessing business applications and corporate information from outside the firewall. Expanding credential management to the these users has become a significant integration challenge, since enterprise developers must find effective ways to generate valid and verifiable credentials for their applications without the cumbersome task of having to deploy an expensive PKI infrastructure for each device platform and/or operating system.
The paper also offers a primer of critical security concepts such as credentials, digital certificates, cryptography and public key infrastructure (PKI), as well as how these corporate measures can now be adapted to meet the unique demands of the wireless user.
According to Peel, "Cloud-based infrastructure services are providing an effective and affordable way for organizations to engage in services that have been out of reach in the past. Just as organizations are using the cloud for storage and file sharing services, they can now do the same for credential management."
