Checklist: Enterprise Encryption Software

Decision Criteria in Favor of or Against a Solution for Encrypting Sensitive Company Files

What does file encryption software need to do? Which functions and features should it have? Which ones are useful and necessary? What are your company's requirements for the solution? These are the very questions you need to ask yourself when you search for a suitable encryption solution to protect your sensitive files on behalf of your company.

Encrypting files is an excellent way of protecting corporate data. No matter where the data is stored, once it has been converted to “ciphertext” using a key, the information in “plaintext” is safe from prying or malicious eyes. But not every IT security specialist and data protection professional is also an expert when it comes to cryptography.

Fortunately, this is no longer a problem, as there are solutions that serve exactly this purpose and protect your company's files through encryption. However, it is a great challenge for most to decide between these encryption solutions or to first be clear about what requirements exist in their own company.

The following checklist is a useful guide to help you classify and evaluate the scope of services offered by various solutions available on the market.

The Checklist Covers Questions on the Following Topics:

  • Encryption
  • Key Management System
  • User Authentication and Advanced Security Factors
  • Enterprise Features

  • Other

Use this checklist to become aware of your requirements and to compare different solutions in detail.
