Dedicated hardware-based encryption and key management can offer higher levels of protection for sensitive data and business applications than software-based methods. In addition to offering superior protection against key compromise or loss, hardware-based solutions help organizations meet regulatory mandates and address today's challenging threat environment.

But how can an organization decide which of its digital assets are best suited for the extra measure of security offered by hardware-based solutions such as hardware security modules (HSMs)? In this webcast, the presenters will explain how to create a set of criteria for prioritizing applications and data, and assign the risks and benefits that would come with hardware-based encryption. With such a set of criteria, information security professionals can make supportable, informed recommendations about the applications and systems that would benefit the most from hardware-based encryption.
