Smile, you're on CCTVEncryption is a hot topic in the news these days, with ongoing revelations of spying by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA). Organizations including Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo and Google have pledged to encrypt users’ data in transit to prevent the NSA — or anyone else — from reading your emails or chats.

Unfortunately, these companies don’t provide complete end-to-end encryption, and there are many loopholes the NSA, or cybercriminals, can slip through.

That’s why an encryption solution that protects data everywhere — in emails, on disk, or in the cloud — is essential. In this short video (embedded below), we explain how you can get security and performance; plus how you can manage native encryption on Macs and Windows PCs, while also protecting data everywhere it resides.

James Lyne, global head of security research at Sophos, explains that many companies aren’t using encryption for fear of slowing users down. With Sophos, you don’t have to worry about encryption impacting performance, James says.

The new SafeGuard Enterprise solves the major challenge of managing encryption across multiple platforms, devices, and cloud environments. Users and IT staff can easily share data safely between Windows, Mac and mobile devices – securing data wherever it lives and wherever it is sent.
