Once again in what appears to becoming a regular if not daily occurrence, the serious epidemic proportions of data breaches continues. With more than 4.5 million patients put at risk with their private, personal and sensitive medical data stolen, it clearly demonstrates that the existing protection systems are failing. Simply securing at the perimeter and securing against malware are wholly insufficient in today’s highly sophisticated world community of hackers.
Equally as troubling, is the fact that China was involved in what also appears to be thieving of intellectual property. The great innovators that reside in this country are susceptible to this kind of hacking risk their innovations winding up in China and the wild’s of the internet.
As has become our company’s mantra, the only certain way to protect your data, is to first realize and accept that it will at some point be stolen. Therefore, protect that data by rendering it completely useless to the data thief.
Data breaches do not just reside at the perimeter. The most serious breaches come unsuspectingly from within. Protect your data with certainty by enveloping it with impenetrable encryption which leaves the thief with only useless bits and bytes.
Secure Channels Inc., has created a paradigm shift within the technology industry. Secure Channels Inc. is a cybersecurity firm leveraging robust, state-of-the-art patented encryption technologies and authentication solutions compatible with every type of data available today.
