Storage for data encryption and security

Protect data against theft or accidental loss

IBM offers a portfolio of information security solutions based on its innovative self-encrypting disk and tape drives. These drives are designed to encrypt data automatically as it enters the drive to be stored, and then automatically decrypt it as it moves out of the drive. The embedded data encryption engine helps to ensure that there is no performance degradation compared to the non-encrypting drives. This drive-level data encryption approach reduces the risk that information could be compromised when storage media are physically removed from the storage systems
