The results of the 2017 Global Encryption Trends Study show that cloud adoption and escalating threats are accelerating the adoption of encryption technology.

The report, based on independent research by the Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Thales, captures how organisations around the world are dealing with compliance, increased threats, and the implementation of encryption to protect their most sensitive data.

The report found that 41% of respondents have an encryption strategy applied consistently across the enterprise. What’s more, for the first time in the study’s 12-year history, business unit leaders have a higher influence over encryption strategy than IT operations.

Other critical findings demonstrate organisations continue to show a preference for control over encryption and key management when those activities migrate to the cloud.

Further findings from the study can be found in the following infographic.
