These kinds of security scares have highlighted the need for the encryption of sensitive data that is stored or at rest – i.e. passwords, financial information, personal information – so that if it was ever stolen, the encryption of it makes it significantly harder to use. The encryption of data in transit for SMBs has, however, taken a back seat in light of recent events – but in order to protect business communications completely, data in transit also needs to be protected.
For many businesses, SMBs in particular, these challenges have meant that they have had to revise their approach to privacy online completely. This changes are entirely necessary but often a business’ weakest link is not its online security but its employees: those who do not take the time to update software or fail to use approved encryption data communications software.
In building a multi-layered and secure network, encrypted data communications, such as through a VPN, is essential. While there are many solutions available in the space, few are designed to meet the specific needs of small and medium-sized businesses. These solutions are often complex and employees shun them on that basis, leading to more risks to the business.
However, Privatise’s online encryption software ensures secure, encrypted data communications, providing businesses with a simple and straightforward solution for online privacy. Privatise’s encrypted data communications software helps SMBs to not only encrypt more of their online communications, ensuring data is protected during transmission, but also to encrypt data at rest.
Privatise Business VPN is easy to deploy, scalable, engineered for SMBs and has automated advanced functions. Once it is up and running, it needs no alteration and comes with advanced tools for privacy management.
Encrypted data communications software is an absolute necessity in today’s digital-first world where data is constantly under attack. Ensuring your privacy online through the use of such software will protect you from cyber criminals and the risks online.
Anyone who has your device’s IP address can readily intercept your data. For example, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in some regions look at customer data for targeted ads – but rogue engineers at these ISPs could potentially access your data in transit and use it.
