    This is the third of a four-part series on How Virtru Is Making a Simple Difference in the Complicated World of Cybersecurity.

    For too long, we’ve been making compromises around our data: Of course, we need to protect sensitive information, but it doesn’t do anyone any good if it’s locked away and inaccessible to those who need it.

    To be effective, data needs to move freely. It needs to be shareable, but only with the right people at the right time. Historically, it hasn’t been easy to achieve the balance of security and shareability—so business leaders have been making one of two compromises:

    • Sacrificing innovation in the name of security: Hindering the ability to share information in favor of keeping it secure under lock and key.
    • Sacrificing security in the name of innovation: Sharing information to accelerate business growth, while crossing your fingers that data doesn’t get compromised.

    While this tradeoff may have once been acceptable, it's no longer an option for innovative businesses that want to grow. Your organization, your data, and your customers deserve something better. 

    The Innovation/Security Tradeoff is a False Paradigm

    As we mentioned in our previous post in this series, encryption solutions can get a bad rap because many are difficult to use. But now, technology has advanced, and there are far better options than the clunky, legacy encryption products that might still haunt you.

    Companies like Virtru are bringing much-needed ease of use to the data security game. Simply put, with Virtru, the tradeoff between innovation and security no longer exists. You can have both.

    The Keys to Secure Data Sharing

    Encrypting data isn’t new, and it’s not terribly complicated. The hard part is balancing the power of encryption with the ease required for it to be usable by regular people — without limiting collaboration and innovation.

    This convergence is where the Virtru Advantage lies. Virtru ties together:

    • Simplicity - An interface that can be used by anyone who knows how to send an email
    • Shareability - Tools to protect data so that you can confidently share it with others
    • Sophisticated Control - The ability to get tough and specific on exactly who can access your shared information, how they can access it, and when

    This powerful combination creates data protection that moves with your information wherever you need it to flow, so you don’t have to make any sacrifices or compromises: You can share information. You can secure it. You can take complete control over what's yours. And you can have the autonomy to change your mind whenever you choose.

    You're in charge of your data's destiny. 

    Stop Compromising: Start Using Virtru

    Security should work for you, not against you. We’d love to show you how Virtru can empower your teams to innovate and share information without making any unnecessary sacrifices. Contact our team to see how simple and affordable it can be to deploy Virtru for your organization.
