Think You Checked the Encryption Box with SEDs? Think Again!

In case you missed it, last week a team of researchers from Radboud University in the Netherlands discovered a serious flaw in self-encrypting drives (SEDs). Luckily, it only affects drives from two manufacturers, Crucial and Samsung.  They accomplished this task spending less than 100 Euros, by reverse engineering the firmware of the drives.  You can […]

Four Data Crimes You Don’t Need to Commit

Picture a crime scene after a break-in. The images in your mind might include broken windows, shattered glass and signs of a struggle. Does that vision change if you learn the break-in took place virtually, affecting the contents of a data center – instead of a home? When a data breach occurs, there’s no physical […]

Encryption and Deduplication – Have Your Cake and Eat it!

The question of how encryption and deduplication work together is a question that comes up often.

Sounds pretty reasonable until you ponder where you might be “thrown […]

My Right To Be Forgotten!

Seriously, that title is right out of a sentence from the GDPR – the General Data Protection Regulation, the original draft that was published by the European Union in 2012 but more pertinently the changes are to be ushered in 2018 which is less than two years away. So if you are an enterprise that […]
