Primer on Cloud Content Encryption and Key Management

Organizations rely on Enterprise File Sync and Sharing (EFSS) services to sync files across devices and share files easily with co-workers, partners, and customers.

Many files in EFSS solutions contain sensitive information that must be encrypted for data security and regulatory compliance. Encryption must be used to protect data in transit from cloud to device or device to cloud, data at rest in storage in the cloud or on a device, and data in use being accessed through APIs, metadata, or search tools.

Read this whitepaper for a comparison of the key management features of the most popular types of EFSS solutions, and to learn how kiteworks by Accellion helps enterprises maintain full control over encryption keys—and hence full control over confidential content—without added cost.
