A company's data may be its most valuable asset, and if misplaced or stolen, organizations run the risk of lost revenue, legal and compliance implications, and a tarnished reputation. And since data spends most of its life at rest on drives within the data center, as these drives leave for repair, retirement, relocation or maintenance, data is vulnerable to being lost or stolen. The emergence of self-encrypting drives (SEDs) mitigates the security vulnerabilities of data-at-rest. Intel Drive Encryption Management, an Intel Premium feature, when paired up with SEDs, provides you with the data encryption and services you need for hard disk drives. Self encrypting drives help protect your data, reduce your costs, and minimize the impact and liability of theft. And this is all done behind the scenes with transparency to your end users.
