What is Encryption?
Encryption is the process by which information is encoded so that only authorised parties can decrypt and use that information, while unauthorised parties cannot gain access to the same data.
Encryption is achieved by means of an algorithm, or a calculation ruleset followed by computers, and is often used to protect sensitive information such as credit card numbers, unique identification or location information and other sets of personally identifiable data.
Once transformed, your data takes the form of unreadable ciphertext which is only accessible if a party has access to your dedicated decryption key. The principle types of key available are asymmetric, or public key, and symmetric, or private key.
Strong encryption is vital in building user trust where ensured, reliable and uninterrupted transmission of sensitive data is essential to the functioning of your digital enterprise or business.
