Storage Encryption Options for Better Security



 
 

I recently relocated to the east coast of the United States to support the Federal Government.  In my new role I will be involved with some customers who are VERY interested in security of information, and who are good IBM customers.

Fortunately for them and myself, IBM has many options to secure data in the storage arena.  I will be talking about some of these in an upcoming web conference on the 15th of January 2013.  Specifically, I will focus on our encryption options: disk systems, fibre channel switches, tape drives, and virtual tape.  These solutions will prevent the access of data that is removed from the datacenter.

A classic case of this is tape cartridges that are shipped off site.  In that case, we have solutions for the LTO and TS11xx line of tape drives.  Encryption options are also available for disk drives that are removed from a site due to breakage or being retired.

I look forward to talking to you next week in a web cast followed by a live Question and Answer session!  Sign up with the following link:
