Company Overview:

RSA is the premier provider of security solutions for business acceleration. As the chosen security partner of more than 90 percent of the Fortune 500, RSA helps the world's leading organizations succeed by solving their most complex and sensitive security challenges. In September 2006, after over 20 years providing leadership to the security industry, RSA Security joined forces with EMC Corporation and Network Intelligence to form the Security Division of EMC. Driving this merger is the recognition that customer needs have changed, and traditional approaches to information security are no longer sufficient. Increasingly, what should be your most important company asset—information—is your greatest liability.

In response, RSA is ushering in a new information-centric approach to security that will empower leading companies worldwide to address these challenges and move ahead with the confidence to compete and win in today’s marketplace. Fueling our mission is the passionate belief that security should be about lifting business limitations, not imposing them.

An Information-centric Approach to Security
Enterprises are now global, virtual and dependent on dynamic information access. By nature, digital information is in constant motion throughout its life cycle, often leaving the secured network perimeter via laptops, PDAs, email and backup tapes. In this shifting landscape, the battlefront in security is rapidly changing from securing the perimeter to protecting the information itself. RSA is responding to this need with an information-centric approach to security that guards the integrity and confidentiality of information throughout its life cycle—no matter where it moves, who accesses it or how it is used. With information-centric security, organizations can be confident their information assets are protected, freeing them to explore new models, markets, partnerships and innovations.
