“Research shows a positive connection between the use of cloud computing, increased business agility and competitive advantage. In addition, the enterprise Mobility market is growing exponentially; Mobility solutions enhance productivity and organisations want their staff and customers to be truly mobile with work and services regardless of the time or their location. This interplay of cloud and mobility and the dependence on the Internet and other e-channels, makes IT security a serious priority. And this is another value that FPG brings to the table.

“Today’s information systems are more globally integrated than ever before, and attacks are increasingly sophisticated. Organisations with traditionally stringent data protection requirements find that the old method of keeping systems in silos work against the agility that this interconnectivity provides and as such now demand a broader range of high assurance solutions to safeguard complex business processes and applications,” he stated.

On the need for proper Data Security, he said Cryptography comes to the rescue. He explained that Cryptography protects data effectively only if keys are secure and well managed.
