Encryption2014: ‘The Year of Encryption?’

06 January 2014

Will 2014 see a big uptick in the use of biometric technologies, strong encryption, a rash of new key technologies and more? Some say that the era of having unencrypted data traffic flowing freely inside enterprises will likely soon come to a crashing halt, helped along by the US government, the Apple iPhone and other drivers.

Security experts at Unisys said that they are gearing up for the broad-based adoption of encryption, against the backdrop of disclosures that the US government may have accessed data from the internal networks of major ISPs.

“Regardless of what you might think of Edward Snowden, the government contractor who leaked secrets about US government surveillance, there is no denying that his disclosures have heightened awareness of cybersecurity all over the world,” said Dave Frymier, Unisys chief information security officer, in a statement. “Before that, many enterprises were running unencrypted data on their internal networks, which they believed were secure. Now they are beginning to use encryption internally as well, so we expect 2014 to be the year of encryption.”

As a result of the Snowden disclosures, officials at the highest levels of organizations around the world will very likely increase their focus on data loss prevention, encryption and prioritizing investments in security.
