Central ControlWith a Compliance Infrastructure, organizations gain the central, efficient enforcement of security controls:
Across the enterprise. Organizations can gain an integrated foundation for managing encryption, tokenization, logging and auditing, and access controls across the entire infrastructure—including application servers, mainframes, databases, laptops, and more.
Across the data lifecycle. Unified compliance infrastructures offer the granular capabilities that security administrators need to enforce data protection controls across the lifecycle of regulated data. For example, with an encryption solution connected directly to each application that connects with sensitive data, customers can encrypt regulated data as soon as it enters business applications, and ensure that data remains encrypted throughout its lifecycle—whether it is saved to a database, storage system, or cloud-based archive—and can only be decrypted by authorized users for authorized purposes.
Across all security activities. An effective management console can offer centralized visibility, control, management, and enforcement. For example, organizations should employ a key management system that enables central management of cryptographic keys and policies for multiple encryption platforms, including those from multiple vendors. By centralizing policy enforcement and logging, these unified infrastructures enable security teams to efficiently enforce the requisite levels of control and ownership.
