Data Center Storage Encryption

Data center storage encryption tools offer configuration, management and reporting for disparate encryption solutions that are available for encrypting data in enterprise data centers. The console manages the encryption infrastructure (key management, policy definition, enforcement and access control), and deploys policies and configurations to the component that performs the actual encryption. Key management is handled by the encryption tools or by an enterprise key manager, and data access is managed at the application or data storage layer.
