Prakash Panjwani, president and CEO of SafeNet, believes organizations must go beyond encryption to protect their most sensitive data against breach, GovInfoSecurity reported Thursday.

Mathew Schwartz writes Panjwani said it is imperative that companies have strategies to mitigate the potential risks of computer hacking and has advised enterprise clients to prioritize security of their most sensitive data.

“Encrypting everything is definitely not the right solution, because many companies have petabytes of data, and it just wouldn’t make sense to do so,” he told Information Security Media Group in an interview.

During the interview, Panjwani also highlighted SafeNet’s three-step program to help customers guard against breaches through encryption, key management and access control.

He forecasts that “crypto management” will be a key trend in the near future as more encryption tools get embedded in multiple applications.
