MIDDLE EAST ENCRYPTION TRENDS STUDY
Find out how organizations in the Middle East are managing encryption across multiple clouds and how your data security practices compare.
You are here.
Your data is there.
Threats are everywhere.
The 2021 Middle East Encryption Trends Study, the most comprehensive encryption survey in the industry, highlights how organizations in the Middle East are managing encryption strategies and data security threats across multiple clouds. The results are clear: sensitive data is at risk, whether the threat comes from a mistake or malicious act, inside or outside the organization.
- Multi-cloud encryption strategies
- Trends in encryption adoption and deployment choices
- Threats, drivers, and priorities
- Importance of hardware security modules (HSMs)
The ever-present threat
59% of organizations report that they have experienced a breach.
Where’s the data?
Two-thirds of respondents say it is a challenge to discover where sensitive data resides.
Ahead of the pack
68% of organizations in the Middle East use HSMs, far outpacing the global average.
Prioritizing cloud data protection
Organizations are seeking more cloud-friendly encryption tools and control over their encryption keys.
Blockchain is close to mainstream adoption, but next generation encryption technologies, such as quantum algorithms, are more than six years away.
