Isn’t Encryption Slow?
At one point, the answer to this was “yes”. But, with multi-threaded implementations designed by Microsoft and other top-rated development houses, modern encryption, with its granular data selection, is incredibly fast. Coupled with cloud storage and computing, and random access of encrypted server data can seem every bit as quick and responsive as any local, unencrypted data. It’s literally impossible to notice the difference.
Is It Future Proof?
These encryption standards aren’t going to go away. It’s easy to assume that, given time, newer encryption technologies will come along. It’s also easy to expect computers to evolve to the point where they can actually brute force older encryption within a reasonable time.
The truth is the matter is, AES 128 and AES 256 would require dedicated quantum computing to crack in a human lifespan, and that’s just not going to be happening any time soon. You can rest assured these encryption standards will serve your business in remaining secure and spyproof for years to come!
