10 questions to ask a potential data storage vendor

By | July 25, 2019

If the vendor says that their data is encrypted, ask them what method of encryption they utilize. Some are more secure than others, such as 128 bit vs. 256 bit encryption. Does the vendor utilize SSL transfer encryption, which provides another layer of protection during file transfer? Finally, ask if a third-party encryption approach can be implemented, because this enables the organization to own the security keys, offering further protection against brute force attacks.
