Most customer data at the app layer is not safe at all

Many businesses understand the importance of protecting data at the application layer but only do so for data that’s at rest. In-use data, on the other hand, is often unprotected, placing such businesses at unnecessary risk.

This is according to a new report from Entrust, published together with application-level protection company Prime Factors. Polling 600 IT professionals in both the UK and the US for the report, the two companies found that many are worried about sensitive data being unprotected in use at the application layer, and plan to take “extensive action” in the next 12 months.
