Protect your information with VNX Data-At-Rest Encryption. It uses a controller based encryption method to encrypt all data written to disk, protecting data access against unauthorized drive removal (lost or stolen drives). In some cases it can eliminate the need for data erasure services. VNX Data-At-Rest Encryption encrypts the entire array. All user data written to disk with standard I/O is encrypted; irrespective of what the application is, irrespective of the access protocol (file or block) and irrespective of which VNX2 platform. All user data is encrypted before it is written to disk. VNX Data-At-Rest Encryption encrypts at the drive level, i.e. every drive will have its own unique encryption key that is managed through an embedded encryption key manager. VNX Data-At-Rest Encryption supports all the rich data services the VNX2 has to offer. All the VNX2 systems have the controller-based encryption hardware already built in and can easily be upgraded, non-disruptively with a software update, to allow data in place enablement of the VNX D@RE functionality.
