Samsung SDS has updated its cloud security service in a move that anticipates a future workplace that is more digital than analog. Citing research that suggests that the cloud will handle 83 percent of enterprise workloads by 2023, the company has adopted a three-pronged approach that uses AI to detect and prevent intrusion while monitoring connected devices to stop data leakage.
The third prong, however, is the most intriguing of the three. It introduces new white box cryptography technology that algorithmically transforms the encryption key. Samsung says this makes it impossible for hackers to decrypt data, rendering breached data useless.
“Samsung SDS will offer end-to-end security services encompassing applications, infrastructure and data in various cloud environments,” said Samsung President and CEO WP Hong. “We will address the concerns of cloud customers by continuously updating our top-class security service with cutting-edge technologies.”
Of course, Samsung is not the only company that has focused on cloud security in recent months. In January, HID Global launched a cloud platform geared towards mobile access, while Gemalto opened new data centers as part of its expansion efforts in the EU. The Samsung announcement simply indicates that cloud security services will continue to be a key focus for many digital security providers moving forward.
