Using Encryption to help compliance efforts

A few months back we announced IP SAN-based encryption for our ISCs.  This new feature is pretty uncommon in IP SANs, and I know many of you were wondering how to use this in the real world.  Enterprise Storage Forum has a great article on how SAN encryption can help security and compliance initiatives.  Check it out.

Here are a few ideas on applications for encryption for your SAN:

  • Protect data at an insecure (less secure) datacenter
  • Protect data when shipping systems between facilities (how many lost back up tapes have you heard about?)
  • Adding security against the theft of physical systems
  • Protect separate storage pools from other departments

How are you considering using encryption?
