Voltage Security announced Voltage Security Mobile Plus, an initiative to extend its existing mobile security solutions to protect the new generation of mobile devices, applications and data.
According to Forrester Research, “Mobility will drive new data-killing initiatives. The advent of the extended enterprise and the ease of accessing corporate information anytime, anywhere, and on any device will create new pressures on security teams to encrypt data. Mobile devices are easy to lose and easy to steal. Enterprise-level encryption is the best hope for securing data on these devices.”
Current mobile security solutions focus on creating boundaries within the devices where data can be stored and accessed. When encryption is used, it is typically non-user friendly, non-application specific, lacking granular policy controls and relying on antiquated key management that requires massive investment to scale.
With Voltage, the data itself is protected so that it can move between applications and devices without disrupting existing processes and user experience. Voltage solutions use Voltage Identity-Based Encryption (IBE) to deliver simplified stateless key management, scalable to millions of users with minimal overhead investment.
Voltage Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE) is a widely-adopted Voltage technology for protecting sensitive information at the data level, while permitting applications to function with that data in the cloud or on mobile devices.
This data-centric information protection technique is already in use in numerous global enterprise data protection deployments and with leading cloud-based payment processors. Voltage is now extending it to mobile payments.
