Policy Driven Encryption

Policy Driven Encryption

KeyScaler offers policy-driven encryption at the data layer for safeguarding sensitive or critical data stored on devices, ensuring its protection across various states. Leveraging patented key technology and crypto-policy agents, KeyScaler provides customizable “drop-in” application-level code tailored to specific data payloads and transmissions. These drop-in agents support multiple applications, facilitating straightforward installation and policy configuration on KeyScaler to fortify data security.

HIPAA and GDPR exemplify data privacy regulations that exert influence on IoT deployments. Cyberattacks frequently target sensitive data left unencrypted on devices, highlighting the inadequacy of merely encrypting data during transmission to the cloud. The expansive and intricate nature of IoT necessitates automation to enforce privacy policies and encrypt protected data while at rest, in transit, and in use. Additionally, managing access to such data by applications and users through Privileged Access Management has emerged as a crucial facet of comprehensive security strategies. Swift policy checks and precise application across diverse devices and services at scale are imperative.

Dynamic keys guarantee that each data payload is encrypted with one-time-use keys, preventing unauthorized access by avoiding key sharing over the network or storage on the device. The inclusion of “set and deploy” policies and intelligent agent technology streamlines regulatory compliance, such as GDPR and HIPAA, while mitigating the risk of data breaches.


Ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of data transmitted between interconnected devices remains a top challenge in IoT security. As IoT devices communicate with each other and with central systems over potentially insecure networks, they are vulnerable to interception and tampering by malicious actors. This poses a significant risk to sensitive data, such as personal information or proprietary business data, which may be compromised if not adequately protected.


The solution to this challenge lies in implementing policy-driven data encryption for IoT. By encrypting data at rest and in transit according to predefined policies, organizations can ensure that sensitive information remains secure even if intercepted by unauthorized parties. Policy-driven encryption allows for granular control over which data is encrypted, under what circumstances, and with which cryptographic algorithms, ensuring that security measures are tailored to the specific needs of the organization and its IoT environment.

Furthermore, policy-driven encryption enables organizations to enforce compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards governing data protection. By aligning encryption policies with regulatory mandates, organizations can mitigate the risk of non-compliance penalties and maintain the trust of customers and stakeholders.


Overall, policy-driven data encryption is essential for addressing the security challenges inherent in IoT deployments, providing robust protection for sensitive data and ensuring the integrity of IoT ecosystems.
