From start-ups to enterprises, from banks to insurance companies, data breaches are affecting everyone. Customer’s User Profile data is under constant attack. Why not encrypt this data? SecureDB is a unique Identity Manager that stores all the Identity Data encrypted by default. Here are 5 reasons your company needs an Encrypted Identity Manager (IdM).
1. Customer Identity data is the most sought after target
In breach after breach, it is the customer’s Identity data that was stolen or compromised. Traditional ways of protecting Identity data have been proven ineffective. So much so, that in the first 6 months of 2015, 245 million records have been compromised. Only 4% of these breached records were encrypted. Just 4 percent !!!
Encrypted Identity Manager would allow your organization to protect your sensitive customer data.
2. Encrypted Identity Manager reduces attack surface
Other than the obvious benefits of encrypting sensitive data, Encrypted Identity Manager vastly reduces the attack surface. Instead of sensitive data being scattered all over the network in clear text, Encrypted Identity Manager acts as a single repository for storing sensitive customer Identity data. This allows network defenders to streamline their efforts.
3. Encrypted IdM gets you closer to compliance
PCI or HIPAA. Encrypted Identity Manager would make your compliance officer very happy. All sensitive customer data encrypted at rest is step one in getting through an audit.
4. Encrypted Identity Manager saves you time
Every application, mobile or web uses registration screen, login screen, change password screen etc. An Encrypted Identity Manager would have APIs to implement these screens. This vastly reduces the amount of boiler plate User Management code developers need to write. Plus, Encrypted IdM would store all the data coming out of these screens encrypted by default.
5. Encrypted Identity Manager saves you money
It takes 3 or more months to implement, test a custom User Management solution. Plus time it takes to encrypt sensitive Identity data (including PII and PHI) your application collects. Implementing custom solution is not only expensive in short term, it is expensive in the long term too. If User Management and Encryption are not your core competencies, it is best to offload that to an Encrypted Identity Manager.
