By leveraging a strong encryption standard like AES, organizations can realize a number of advantages, but they can also confront some downsides. Now, there’s a newly sanctioned approach that offers the potential to avoid some significant tradeoffs when employing AES encryption. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a strong algorithm that’s been widely adopted for some time. One of the positives of AES encryption is that it hides the original format (e.g. size and character set) of the clear-text data, making […]

Recently, NoSQL databases have become very popular across enterprises and many of them are choosing Couchbase to power their web, mobile, and IoT applications. As more and more companies adopt NoSQL, the amount of sensitive data stored in these repositories is also rising.

I try to keep on top of the news, particularly as it relates to the nature and severity of cyber attacks taking place. Sadly, there’s been no shortage of reading material lately. Last month, there were reports on breaches at Kmart and Dairy Queen (my family loves Blizzards). Updates then came out about a massive breach at Home Depot.
