94 per cent of executives think security is more important than cost savings
Security Designed into Software-Defined Data Center Accelerates Cost and Agility Benefits, HyTrust Study Reveals
Study of senior business and technology executives shows clear understanding of quantifiable and undeniable benefits gained from virtualization and the cloud
“What we’re seeing now is clear progress in this exciting arena, as technology solutions that balance high-quality workload security with effortless automation push back those fears. The focus is now exactly where it should be: ensuring that the virtualised or cloud infrastructure enables tremendous cost savings with unparalleled agility and flexibility,” Chiu says.
According to a recent 451 Research survey, 51 percent of government respondents said complexity was the biggest barrier to securing data.

But encryption keys are long. The smallest recommended key, the AES-128, is the equivalent of a 39-digit number.
Encryption works. It works so well that even the government gets stymied, as demonstrated by the lengths to which the FBI went to access an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino, Calif., shooters.
