The Identities of Data

executive summary Executive Summary

The idea of data-centric security is not a new one for the IT security industry. But the fundamental changes in enterprise IT topology, presaged by the adoption of cloud-based application-delivery models and access from mobile devices, have created some urgency to make this vision more concrete. The ‘Identities of Data’ concept that we introduce in this report is intended to provide a framework to respond to the current requirements for greater integration between identity management, data classification and encryption. Even as the market is largely defined by a set of discrete use cases for data governance, security and compliance, this report outlines the architectural forks in the road that lie ahead.
