Encryption using enterprise-owned keys is quickly becoming an essential part of security for data in the cloud. That’s why McAfee has formed the industry’s first Cryptography Advisory Board to provide third-party validation and oversight of our encryption solutions. Working in close collaboration with five leading academics in the field of cryptography, McAfee has access to cutting edge research and the ability to quickly validate and deploy cryptographic innovations for our customers. In addition to providing peer-review of cryptographic algorithms, collaboration between McAfee and the board has already led to several advancements in order-preserving, format-preserving, and searchable encryption for services such as Salesforce and ServiceNow. We see it as part of our commitment to openness and transparency, but you may see it as a way to confidently embrace the business benefits of cloud services without sacrificing your security requirements.
