Imagine having to contact 10 million customers to apologize because their social security and credit card numbers were compromised due to a stolen company laptop? Then imagine all of the associated financial and legal repercussions you'd have to deal with, and beyond that, how your brand would suffer from a damaged reputation and a future lack of customer trust. However, this potential crisis could be avoided by investing in software that helps protect your data.
According to the 2013 Manufacturing and Distribution monitor report from consulting firm, McGladrey, which surveyed 1,067 industry executives across the United States, an overwhelming 68% of executives felt their data was at little or no risk. Scary, huh?
Data is always at risk. Whether it’s a professional hacker or a disgruntled employee, it is in an organization’s best interest to protect sensitive data.
With Progress OpenEdge Transparent Data Encryption (TDE), you can do just that. It protects your “data-at-rest” while using standard encryption libraries and encryption key management. The best part is you can use TDE without changing ABL or SQL code, database design and management, or user procedures.
TDE also has less than 2% of a performance impact and is completely automated. It provides protection on disk, in backups, and binary dump files. You simply set it and forget it, knowing that your data is securely protected.
Learn more about the importance of protecting your data and how OpenEdge TDE can help from our Transparent Data Encryption Resource Center.
